P80C592 Re-creation

When the original component manufacturer (ocm) communicated the EOL notice for the P80C592, Rochester Electronics became thyssenkrupp’s key ally for a resolution. With original design and test data transferred, Rochester Electronics successfully re-created the P80C592 for thyssenkrupp ensuring a seamless production, without any need to modify the software or hardware and thus avoiding costly redesigns and requalification rounds. The P80C592 is a single-chip 8-bit 8051 microcontroller with on-chip CAN controller, and it is used in several products at thyssenkrupp.

Key P80C592 Product Features Include:

  • 80C51 central processing unit (CPU)
  • 10-bit ADC with 8 multiplexed analog inputs
  • CAN-controller (CAN = Controller Area Network) with DMA data transfer facility to internal RAM
  • Full-duplex UART compatible with the standard 80C51

Voice of the Customer

“Following the EOL announcement of the P80C592 microcontroller, thyssenkrupp Elevator engaged with Rochester Electronics to do a complete re-creation of this component. Working together, Rochester and thyssenkrupp were able to re-create, test and qualify this component within less than a year, from project start to mass production ramp-up.

Collaboration with Rochester was seamless throughout the project, and the professionalism and open communication were key to the successful re-creation program. This allowed us to continue to support our customers without going through expensive and time-consuming re-design.”
