The M8051EW V3.0 is a highly configurable softcore implementation of the industry standard 8051 microcontroller that features a two-clocks-per-machine cycle architecture. Use of standard synchronous design methodology makes this core simple to integrate into both ASIC and FPGA SoC designs.
The M8051EW V3.0 includes many key enhancements and product updates when compared to the Mentor Graphics M8051EW+ core offered by IPextreme. All product enhancements and support services of the M8051EW offered by Syntill8, as well as design services, are provided by the original M8051EW IP architect.
Three additional peripheral cores that available for use with the M8051EW include the M2WIS (a two-wire slave interface), the M4WIS (a four-wire slave interface) and the UDPMAC (a 1Gbps Ethernet MAC with an RGMII interface).
