Encyclopedia > 8085

The Intel 8085 is an 8-bit microprocessor made by Intel in the mid-1970s. It was binary compatible with the more_famous Intel 8080 but required less supporting hardware, thus allowing simpler and less expensive microcomputer systems to be built.


The "5" in the model number came from the fact that the 8085 required only a 5-volt power supply rather than the 5V and 12V supplies the 8080 needed. Both processors were sometimes used in computers running the CP/M operating system, and the 8085 later saw use as a microcontroller (much by virtue of its component count reducing feature). Both designs were later eclipsed by the compatible but more capable Zilog Z80, which took over most of the CP/M computer market as well as taking a large share of the booming home computer market in the early-to-mid-1980s.

Both processors were sometimes used in computers running the CP/M operating system, and the 8085 later saw use as a microcontroller (much by virtue of its component count reducing feature).
8085 also has TRAP interrupt, which cannot be disabled, that is, TRAP is a Non-Maskable interrupt (NMI), and 8085 also has an INTR interrupt, but it's use requires an external Programmable Interrupt Controller (eg.
The Intel 8085 (217 words)
The 8085 was the follow-on processor to the very successful Intel 8080A processor.
The 8085 incorporated all the features of the 8224 (clock generator) and the 8228 (system controller) increasing the level of system integration.
The 8085 family is also referred to as the MCS-85.
