April 9, 2009 -- Digital Core Design (DCD) has released the fifth generation of its popular 8051 core. DP8051 runs Dhrystone 2.1 benchmark program 11.45 to 14.74 times faster than the original 80C51 at the same frequency. It gives 0.10779 to 0.13868 DMIPS/MHz (VAX MIPS). With its small gate-count size the DP8051 is a perfect choice for designers seeking 8051-based solutions.
DP8051XP family provides efficient real-time JTAG based DoCD debugger and is fully user configurable.
This core family 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.
