Dolphin Integration SA has expanded its Flip8051 family with the release of a 16-bit microcontroller (MCU).

The Virtual Component Flip80251 "Typhoon" is an accelerated version of the Intel C251 microcontroller. It is 100 percent binary code compatible upward with the 80C251 but optimized for one of the best ratio performance over complexity.

The product features an enhanced pipelined architecture that allows single cycle execution for most of the instructions. And because of its 24-bit linear addressing, the Typhoon allows up to 8MB of program memory and 8MB of data memory.

The device includes Hardware Wait States for interfacing with asynchronous peripherals and low cost memories. Its architecture is register-based with registers accessible as bytes, words and double words for speeding-up application programs. It features clock/power management unit (for processor and memories) and power-saving modes (idle, power-down and external clock/power management unit), and integrates seamlessly with the Keil PK251 Professional Developer's Kit, which includes the ?Vision2 Integrated Development Environment (IDE) with its simulator/debugger, C-compiler, assembler, linker and tiny RTOS.

The Flip80251 is available at both SOFT level (VHDL or Verilog synthesizable RTL) and firm level (Xilinx or Altera synthesized netlist), per the VSIA standard.
