Rochester Electronics now manufactures a lead-free, eco-conscious AM188EM microprocessor.

Originally manufactured by AMD, the AM188EM is a higher-performance, more integrated version of the 80C188 microprocessor. The enhanced on-chip peripherals of the AM188EM microcontroller include an asynchronous serial port, 32 PIOs, a watchdog timer, an additional interrupt pin, a synchronous serial interface, a PSRAM controller, a 16-bit reset configuration register, and enhanced chip-select functionality.

By manufacturing the AM188EM in a lead free package, customers are able to comply with today’s more strict environmental requirements while still utilising AMD’s proven technology in a wide range of applications, such as disk drives, fax machines, printers, modems, and industrial controls.

“The development of the lead-free AM188EM microprocessor highlights one of Rochester’s unique capabilities. We are authorised to create and manufacture lead-free versions of previously discontinued products,” said George Karalias, Director of Marketing and Communications for Rochester Electronics.
