With the first models introduced in 1988, the i960s were widely used throughout the 1990s. Both the i960 and i860 were replaced with the StrongARM chips acquired from Digital Equipment. See StrongARM.
A family of high-performance RISC-based microprocessors from Intel. StrongARM chips have been used in handheld devices from PDAs to palmtops. Jointly developed by Digital Equipment Corporation and Advanced RISC Machines (ARM), Intel acquired Digital's chip manufacturing facilities in 1997 and continued making the chips to supersede its earlier i860 and i960 lines. The StrongARM technology evolved into Intel's Xscale line. See Xscale and ARM chips.
