Intel iapx 432
The intel iapx 432 is a central processing unit designed by integrated circuit manufacturer intel. The CPU was first in 1981. It was not popular. John Dvorak, writing in PC Magazine in 2006 called it
- "...a processor that was one of the biggest flops in Intel’s history, but one of the more fascinating chips the company designed."
The 432 was not a single chip computer. The CPU had separate chips. At its core were a decoder/sequencer and a execution unit. It also required an I/O controller and a bus interface unit and memory control unit.
