News CAST Introduces Fast D80530 Core for 8051 Microcontroller-Based Designs

Offers 8051 Compatibility with Faster Architecture and Quicker, Performance-Optimized Implementation

DATE 2000, Paris, March 27 2000

D80530 core has been discontinued. Please contact Sales to learn more.

CAST Inc. today announced the D80530 Microcontroller Core, a new intellectual property (IP) product for electronic designs based on the popular Intel(TM) 8051 microcontroller.

Thousands of products have been built around the Intel 8051 microcontroller over the past thirty years. Designers today often need to replace obsolete 8051 parts to maintain the longevity of an existing product, or wish to incorporate 8051 functionality within a new system that uses fewer parts or requires better performance. The new CAST D80530 core provides a competitive, cost-effective solution to these challenges.

A Faster 8051-Compatible Design

The new D80530 reusable core is code-compatible with the standard 8051, but uses a faster architecture to achieve significantly greater performance. This architecture -- compatible with that used by Dallas Semiconductors(TM) in their DS80C320 chip -- eliminates redundancies, incorporates parallel processing, and requires fewer clock cycles for each machine cycle, typically executing the same instruction three times faster than the 8051.

The new core is also optimized for efficient implementation with programmable devices from popular vendors Altera(TM) and Xilinx(TM). Sample implementations of the D80530 core using these devices show it to be one of the fastest 8051-compatible microcontrollers available anywhere today:

 

Altera Flex 10K
Altera Apex 20K
Xilinx Virtex
Xilinx Virtex-E

32.5 MHz
52.0 MHz
53.4 MHz
66.0 MHz

 

CAST is a member of the Altera MegaFunctions Partners Program and the Xilinx AllianceCore; please see their respective Web pages for more information.

Proven, Complete Deliverables

Developed by CAST partner Evatronix Ltd. (www.evatronix.com.pl), the D80530 core was thoroughly verified by comparing it to the operation of actual 8051 and DS80C320 chips using a proprietary hardware modeler. It is available immediately in either synthesizable VHDL or as an optimized netlist ready for implementation. The core package includes complete documentation, examples, and testbenches. Please see the CAST Web site (www.cast-inc.com) technical documentation and additional information.
