What's the difference between the Intel 80196 and the 80296?

Are they both source code compatible with the 8051?

I did projects with both the 8051 and 80196, and I don't
remember the 80196 being source code compatible with the 8051.

As you might expect from the numbers, the 296 is a newer/faster variant.

NO. The 196 series are not code compatible with the 8 bit 80C51,
but they are both Intel designed Microcontrollers.

The 196 are 16 bit, with a register-register opcode that reaches
256 bytes -
These devices made OTP variants, but Intel never released FLASH models.

  The closest equivalent device that one would consider
for new designs, would be the XC166 family from Infineon.
