BYTOM, POLAND — May 05, 2009 — Digital Core Design (DCD) today releases World's smallest and fastest 8051 core.
The 7150 ASIC gates for complete system including 8051-CPU, full duplex UART, Timers 0&1, Advanced Power Management Unit, eight I/O lines, eight external interrupts INT0-INT7 and 2-wire
DoCD on-chip debugger is the best achievement on the IP Market. DT8051 runs Dhrystone 2.1 benchmark program
8.1 times faster than the original 80C51 at the same frequency. It can be easily checked by everyone using our
DoCD on chip debugger and running included Dhrystone benchmark inside DoCD simulator. It gives
0.0763 DMIPS/MHz (VAX MIPS), which is much better performance comparing to our competitors. Taking into account its small gate-count size then it makes DT8051 perfect choice for all customers seeking low power small die 8051 based solutions. This core was build as an enhancement of successful DP8051 generation with long 8 years ASIC history. Such way of the DT8051 development made it very reliable and stable product.
DT8051 core provides efficient real-time TTAGTM based DoCD debugger, is fully user configurable and wrapped 0.0714 square milimiters (0.18 um technology) - there are the most important features. The 2-wire on-chip debugging solution makes DT8051 perfect for low-pin count applications, where chip size has a matter. DT8051 provides the best area (7150 ASIC gates) to performance (8.1 times faster) ratio which makes it the best solution available on the 8051 IP market. Customers don't have to sacrifice the top performance and pickup worse option from other IP vendors. This dilemma has been solved by DCD's DT8051 core, which is the most versalite solution applicable for everyday's work of design engineers.
This Core is available in VERILOG Source code, VHDL Source code and FPGA Netlist formats for immediate purchase from Digital Core Design. DCD also offers a variety of additional packaging and flexible licensing options to suit customer's specific needs.
