NXP P80C592 Replication

When NXP communicated the EOL notice for the P80C592, Rochester Electronics became Thyssenkrupp’s key ally for a resolution. With original design and test data transferred from NXP, Rochester Electronics as an authorized partner of NXP, successfully replicated 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 EOL announcement of NXP’s P80C592 microcontroller, Thyssenkrupp Elevator engaged with Rochester Electronics to do a complete replication of this component. Working together, Rochester and Thyssenkrupp were able to replicate, 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 product replication program. This allowed us to continue to support our customers without going through expensive and time-consuming redesign.”

-Olli Lehtonen, Cluster Manager, Electrics & Electronics
