Am9080 was a family of 8-bit microprocessors reverse-engineered clones of the Intel 8080 introduced by AMD in 1975.

History[edit]

AMD began manufacturing their version of Intel's 8080 in 1975 after reverse-engineering an original off-the-shelf i8080, decapping it, and taking pictures of the die using a microscope[1]. Work was undertaken by Shawn Hailey and Kim Hailey. In 1976 AMD entered into a cross-licensing agreement with Intel granting them authorization to become a second source. The agreement granted each other the nonexclusive right to manufacture, use, and sell any product covered by any patents of the other party. Additionally the agreement released each other from any liability for past infringements. AMD paid Intel $325K ($25K during signing and $75K/year thereafter)[2]. The agreement was later expanded in 1982 which grew to incorporate the x86 family of microprocessors and which later grew into legal dispute that lasted until 1996[2].

Architecture[edit]

Main article: MCS-80

The Am9080 is a reverse-engineered clone of the Intel 8080 and is thus architecturally identical. It's interesting to note that AMD's chip is significantly smaller die than Intel's own 8080 (in fact it's the densest 8080 produced).
