CAST Interviewed: "Examining the Enduring Appeal of the 8051"

by Interview

CAST Interviewed:

Well-known EDA/IP writer Jonah McLeod recently interviewed our Hal Barbour and Nikos Zervas regarding the 8051 for his new Internet of Things blog at Chip Design. Offering one of the best lines of 8051 cores for fourteen years now, we were pleased to share our experiences.

Titled "Examining the Enduring Appeal of the 8051," Jonah's post discusses how the proliferation of MEMs and smart sensors in mobile phones and other IoT systems has given the thirty-three-year-old 8051 a new life in modern products. 

Some highlights from the post:

  • "The old saying that as one door closes another one opens appeared to be working for the 8051.  As the CPU was designed out of the USB applications it began being integrated with smart sensors in a multichip package."
  • "Unlike 32-bit processors that come with a license fee and royalty stream, the 8051 can be had for one upfront charge.  And ... the 8051 has a wide and deep ecosystem of software, programmer familiarity, and design expertise that make it and ideal solution for a wide range of embedded computing tasks."
  • "... just as new applications came in to save the venerable 8-bit processor before, Internet of Things may yet hold some salvation for the 8051 going forward. It may find service as a controller in home monitoring systems providing WiFi, BlueTooth, and Zigbee protocol processing for communications to a central controller."
