These models are 100% accurate and feature a link with the Keil µVision® IDE and debugger by ARM® to enable interactive software debug.
Accurate Models Speed Development Schedule
"The 8051 remains a widely used microcontroller," stated Bill Neifert, chief technical officer at Carbon Design Systems. "They are often used in designs that have tight time-to-market pressures and can ship in massive volumes. By partnering with Mentor and a joint customer to deliver Carbonized versions of the 8051 microcontroller, we are enabling designers to develop their firmware and ROM code in advance of silicon availability and shorten their development schedules."
About the Models
Carbon's models of the 8051, 8051W and 8051EW microcontrollers from Mentor are compiled directly from the implementation register transfer level (RTL) code. These models integrate directly with Carbon's SoC Designer Plus virtual platform and can also execute in any leading RTL simulator. Each model can be interactively debugged using a direct integration with Keil's uVision Debugger. Each model also integrates directly with Mentor's Questa Codelink to further simplify debug.
Models of the Mentor Graphics 8051, 8051W and 8051EW are available today from Carbon's IP Exchange web portal: www.carbonipexchange.com.
