i want to know about compatibility of microcontroller 8096.
and how it should be connected with the servo drive. tell me about the circuit digram also.

Your question needs much more detail to get a decent answer.

Connection to a servo driver can be done several ways:
a. use A/D on a position sensor on controlled apparatus, then use an HSIO (or in some flavors a dedicated PWM output) as a pulse-width modulator to control a DC servo motor.
b. use HSIO to drive a multiphase stepping motor
c. an early rube-goldberg method actually used in many cars was to use 2 HSIO outputs to drive vaccum and atmospheric solenoids to alter air pressure in a pneumatic servo.  Feedback was through A/D.
d. solenoid-driven fuel injectors -- a type of hydraulic servo -- are commonly driven by an HSIO pin through a power amplifier.
e. printer pins or ink-jets are driven by power amplifier from an HSIO pin.

It has been used for other types of servo drives, including voice-coil disk positioners, hydraulic clutches (via solenoid valves), etc.

IT was originally designed to run gas engines, and was used in almost 100 milion cars over 20 years production.  Other applications like missile autopilots, disk drive controllers (millions used that way, Seagate and Western Digital), printers, automatic transmissions, and microwave ovens came later.

As to compatibility, as with most processors it is compatible only with various family members and second sources of family members.  It is neither an 8051 nor an 8086.  OR are you asking about memory bus compatibility?

I dont know how long Intel plans to support the C196 variant since I no longer work there--I designed original CPU architecture and instruction set, as well as both CPU and I/O of later Ford derivatives.

This family also includes Ford EEC-4/EEC-5 (8061, 8065) processors and derivatives that address more memory and have more I/Os and more flexible interrupt structures than 8096.  Family members have been manufactured under license by Motorola, IBM, Toshiba. 8096 is only partially compatible with some other family members since I/O reserved addresses and stack pointer register number do differ.  Also high-speed I/O and other ports differ dramatically between, for example, Intel/Ford 8061, Ford 8065, and Intel 8096/80C196.  Even the main memory bus differs between flavors, a Ford 8065 EPROM will not work on an 8096.
