The Cadence® 8051 microprocessor IP, is still serving new applications in consumer and Internet of Things (IoT) markets. 

The Cadence 8051 microprocessor IP has been licensed over 300 times, validated in multiple platforms and well proven in production. Over the years, Cadence significantly improved the 8051 architecture, adding multiple configuration options and accelerating performance to over 12 times the original Intel® 8051 design. 

The Cadence 8051 microprocessor offering is comprised of two IP products; the fast and configurable R8051CX2 Microcontroller; and the compact (less than 3k gates) and compatible (with 8051 ISA) T8051 Microcontroller.
