The 80C196 is the first member in the family of microcontrollers targeted at powertrain control in automobiles. Commercial applications include modem, motor-control systems, printers, photocopiers, air-conditioner control systems, disk drives and medical instruments. It operates at up to 40 MHz and is highly integrated with a large number of peripherals and 4K of RAM. The
80C196's demultiplexed address/data bus with 3 chip select outputs make it easier to design low cost memory solutions.
