Hello asm community,

I need to buy an 8086, 8284 and some other of these *old* stuff, anyone knows of a supplier?

Regards,
leopardus.

I couldn't fathom anything other than places like ebay (unless you "know" someone)... but you'd have to read the fine print in those auctions as there is probably no guarantee on the working condition of the chip/dip.

I'd guess Intel might still sell some of their older CPUs, if you order large  enough quantities...

Since all of the intel CPU's are backward compatible, any of the newer chips still can function as an 8086. :lol:

Not 100%... instruction timings are different, and so is power consumption. You wouldn't use a P4 for really critical embedded stuff ;)

Thanks for the correction. I realized just that after I sent that I had meant to say something like 90 some percent backward compatible. I don't know where the chip searcher is but here there are 286 and 386 mavhines laying around for cheap.

I'm following this book on intel interfacing and I will be needing some interfacing chips :shock: For the microprocessor I think I will use my old 486, and now I need a 486 breadboard -- any ideas where I can get these things from. Fyi I live on a small island!!

The most toying around I have seen with an x86 processor is Charles Crayne's page about his meddling with the 8088 (or was it 8086?) using solid-state circuitry.

I hope someone else has more information :|

Malta or Gozo???

I see a lot of old kit being advertised on sites like this for $50 kinda thing.

My wise granny would say: in short of the Real Thing (tm) you can always put an 8086 core into a FPGA. :)

Comino of course! ;)
