8-bit Microprocessors

HCS08 Processor from Freescale is a state-of-the-art, high-performance, low-power processor.  The HCS08 is in production in hundreds of millions of devices and thousands of embedded systems are utilizing it.

The M8051EW/M8051W from Mentor Graphics is a high-performance version of the popular 8051 8-bit microcontroller. With 2 cycle/instruction performance, the M8051EW/M8051W provides 6X the performance of a standard 8051 processor. The ‘On-Chip Instrumentation’ (OCI) debug unit included with the M8051EW supports advanced debug operations (start/stop/ single-step, breakpoints, and trace) through an IEEE 1149.1 (JTAG) interface. Used in well over 100 production designs, the M8051EW/M8051W is the industry standard synthesizable 8051 processor core.
