World’s Fastest 8051 Microcontroller IP Core with JTAG on-chip Debug Interface

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) June 2, 2005

Designed by Digital Core Design, and proven in multiple ASIC and FPGA designs, the DP8051 is an 8-bit ultra high performance, speed optimized controller with JTAG on-chip debug interface supporting unlimited number of real time hardware breakpoints.

The DP8051 soft IP core is 100% binary-compatible with the industry standard 8051 8-bit microcontroller and supports both Harward and Von Neumann configurations. The core is supported with wide range of peripherals including; PMU, UART, Timers, Watchdog, Interrupts, MDU, I2C, 10/100 MAC, FPAU, and FPMU.

The DP8051 has Pipelined RISC architecture 10 times faster compared to standard architecture and executes 85-200 million instructions per second.

The DP8051 is delivered with fully automated testbench and complete set of tests allowing easy package validation at each stage of SoC design flow.

“High performance, speed, real time on-chip JTAG interface, and extraordinary support provided by Digital Core Design and Hitech Global make the DP8051 IP Core the premium choice by many SOC designers around the world – Said Cyrus Merati HiTech Global Sr. Director of Sales and Marketing.

“Basing on a huge popularity of previous version of our debugger, we implemented JTAG interface to make the newest DoCDTM even better. Nowadays our system can meet all the requirements and needs, which a user can expect from the hardware debugger, and get an excellent complete IP solution (core and debugger) from the only one design company.” – said Jacek Hanke – President of Digital Core Design.
