BIELSKO-BIALA, Poland, Jan. 22 /CNW/ - 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(R) 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(R) 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
