The first product of Quickchip is an 8051 compatible embedded processor core that achieves six times the performance of a standard 8051 micro controller. While a standard 8051 micro controller takes 12 clock cycless for a machine cycle the QUIC_8051 only takes two.
For an efficient debugging, a QUIC_8051 based FPGA can be connected to a standard 8051 In-Circuit Emulator. Unlike other embedded controller cores that come along with an on-chip debug module with limited functionality, a slow communication channel, and additional FPGA resource usage, QUIC_8051 based FPGA designs can be debugged with the high-level feature set and the comfort of an In-Circuit Emulator. No on-chip debug module exhibits such features an In-Circuit Emulator does like code coverage and performance analysis.
