ABSTRACT
<p>This article takes a look at the Intel 8086 CPU chip's development, which eventually resulted in 30 years of successful chip designs (e.g. 186, 286, 386, 486, Pentium) that have allowed Intel to dominate microcomputers. The project was not originally planned, but rather was a crash, catch-up project that strove to fill a gap in the Intel product line caused by development problems with the 8800 and 8085 chip designs.</p>
