A new 8051 processor IP operates 29 times faster

For some applications if you still would like to use 8-bit 8051 processor IP , you might be impressed by the latest 8051 processor IP core from Poland based Digital Core Design (DCD). DCD has introduced the latest DQ8051 IP Core with a Dhrystone 2.1 performance rating of 0.27292 DMIPS/MHz, a 29.01 times high over the original 80C51 chip operating at the same frequency, according to the claims by DCD.

DQ8051 is also designed to consume low dynamic power of 1.2W/MHz, comparable to low-power 32-bit processors.

There are few simple and valid reasons for engineers still using 8051 in their designs. 8051 is the most popular processor core for microcontrollers even now. Huge amount of reference designs, DIY projects, and reusable assembly language code is available for 8051 for huge number of applications.

The problem with the 8-bit is, it cannot support today's data size requirements for many applications. Most of the applications need 32-bit resolution. The audio and touch interface are making big entry into lot of new areas in embedded space, even the 32-bit processors new need to improve their data handling capability to handle audio and other multi media like data handling.

Key Features of the DCD's latest 8051:
100% software compatible with 8051 industry standard
Quad-Pipelined architecture enables to run 29.01 times faster, than the original 80C51 at the same frequency
Up to 27.297 VAX MIPS at 100 MHz
