Editor’s Note: Personally I’m a sucker for anything to do with the 8051, not the least because I know the guy who designed the original article. On this basis I’m happy to post this article about Digital Core Design and their announcement of “The world’s most advanced 80C51 architecture.” I think the real news here is that the designers of this core will be available to answer questions at CeBIT. However, it would be remiss of me to neglect to mention that the little rascals already announced this back in January of this year, when it was covered in great detail by my illustrious colleague Collin Holland (see A quad-pipelined 16/32-bit microcontroller core).
The folks from Digital Core Design, a leading Intellectual Property (IP) Core provider and System-on-Chip (SoC) design house from Poland, have recently introduced what they enthusiastically describe as “The world’s most advanced 80C51 architecture.”
Thanks to the unique combination of the instruction set and an optimized architecture, the company says it has achieved results which are more than 56 times better than a standard 8051 and more than 70% more efficient, than the nearest competition.
“We’re proud to present the world’s fastest 80C51 CPU at CeBIT,” says Piotr Kandora, VCEO, Director of R&D in Digital Core Design. “That event is a heart of the digital world, that’s why we wanted to present our CPU there, to gain reliable information from IT and ICT professionals.”
Digital Core Design will be located at stand B46 in Hall 6, at the Polish National Pavilion, hosted by Ministry of Economy. DQ80251, world’s fastest 80C51 CPU will be presented from March 6 till March 10. There will be also a unique occasion to talk with the designers of the most efficient microprocessor on the first and the second day of the show. On Thursday, anyone can join official presentation of DQ80251 during ICT conference held by Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Poland.
