The intel 80286 is a microprocessor introduced by semiconductor manufacturer intel in the early 1980s.[1] It is a lineal descendant of intel's earlier successful central processing unit, the 8088, which had powered IBM's very successful IBM-PC. In 1984, when IBM introduced a more powerful successor to the IBM-PC, the IBM-AT, they built it around the 80286.
