The 16p concept, the realization and the manufacture of the 1986 and 1987 years called upon common assembly procedures. However the hardware remained highly complex, the manufacturing steps numerous and expensive, moreover the quality controls generated a very high rejection rate. In addition new more advanced techniques of assembly became available though not always mature, and the level of integration technologies ASIC allowed a great step ahead very promising for the performances, reliability and the costs.
The revaluation of the 16p generated an in-depth work on all the elements: Design, new functionalities, electronics, mechanics, thermal elements, sound quality and noise, ergonomics, availabilities of options, electronic integration, software development environment, perenniality, techniques of assembly and assembly steps, interchangeability of the components - modularity, quality control,
In September 1987 Acxel was presented in its known version and the production started at the beginning of 1988 with details of improvement throughout the year 1988.
