This artwork is a mixed media display celebrating the Intel 80186. The Intel 186 is the only generation of the x86 line that did not have a significant use in the PC market. Even those with experience with the early days of the IBM PC will not even recall there was a 186. However, the 186 had a couple of notable features.
It was faster, more functional and had new instructions. The new packaging was more interesting: the Pin Grid Array (PGA) and the much lighter Leadless Chip Carrier (LCC). Both were significant departures from the old bug-style Dual Inline Packages (DIPs). The 186 was primarily used as a controller in communications and control equipment. This artwork includes 3 major items.
