Evatronix Introduces the R8051XC2 to Supply SoC Designs with the World's Highest Performance 8051 8-Bit Microcontroller IP Core
BIELSKO-BIALA, Poland, January 22 / / - The Silicon Intellectual Property (IP) provider, Evatronix SA, announced today the next generation of its highly successful 8051 configurable IP core - the R8051XC2.
Last year the 3.000 gates of the Evatronix T8051 microcontroller's CPU set the new standard for the low gate count in the 8-bit world. Now the R8051XC2 adds highest available performance to an already wide range of configuration options of the previous generation IP core (R8051XC).
The overall IP core performance measured in DMIPS/MHz is 0.088 when the microcontroller is set to be 80C51 compliant only, and 0.114 with all implemented enhancements. This can be also put as 9.4 and 12.1 times more performance, respectively when compared to the original architecture at the same clock frequency.
"The R8051XC2 is the ultimate result of over a decade of work on 8051 Instruction Set Architecture cores", said Wojciech Sakowski, Evatronix President. "Every one of over 200 of our successful 8051 designs has contributed to this success and made us the leader in 8051 IP. The R8051XC2, like its predecessor, is a milestone for 8-bit IP industry."
Availability and customization options
The R8051XC2 IP core is available for licensing now. For off-the-shelf compatibility with Intel(TM) 80C51 and Siemens® SAB80C515 (80C517) chips architectures, pre-configured and downwards configurable A and B versions of the R8051XC2 are available.
The R8051XC2 will also be soon available in the Evatronix USB, Ethernet and HDLC SoC Development Platforms.
For FPGA evaluation purposes the R8051XC2 free demo will be available for download from February 9th on.
About Evatronix 8051 Series Microcontrollers
Developed as early as in 1997, Evatronix 8051 IP cores have always reflected the market needs for robustness and configurability, starting from replacements of Intel(TM) 80C51 chip, through Siemens® SAB80C515 (80C517) to such 8-bit power horses like R8051XC and now R8051XC2.
The list of peripherals include such functional blocks as SPI, I2C, WDT, UARTs, timers (with PWM), DMA, RTC and others.
Evatronix develops IP cores along with complementary software and supporting development environments. The company also provides electronic design services. All products are available directly or through CAST, Inc, strategic distribution partner of Evatronix. To find out more please visit Evatronix website at http://www.evatronix.pl.
