Over 1,000 locations around the world provide an extensive sales and service network to guarantee closeness to their customers. Thyssenkrupp is a diversified industrial group with a growing share of capital goods and service businesses and traditional strengths in materials.
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.”
