Second Generation Processors
The only chip generally considered second generation is the 80286. Intel also made a chip between the 8088 and the 80286, called the 80186. Largely due to a lack of performance enhancements compared to the 286, in addition to compatibility problems with support chips, the 80186 was never really used in PCs. It has however found a strong niche role in the design of embedded microcontrollers, even to this day.
