The AcurX51(TM) microcontroller SoC platform is targeting smart grid
and Home Area Networks (HAN).
The AcurX51 is built with a custom Palm8051 processor core and silicon proven peripherals
targeting HAN appliances
Palmchip is a pioneer in the platform based development of System on Chip (SoC)
designs and the IP licensing business. We set the industry standard with our patented
AcurX® platform technology which is at the heart of millions of SoC
designs spanning from the high end communication systems, to consumer, industrial
and automotive products, to low power hand held design, to smart cards. Our multitude
of platforms address the various design points in the SoC market from low end microcontrollers
to multicore CPU designs, where each platform has been optimized for its target
The 80251 core executes the instruction in a single clock cycle, and is an instruction
set compatible implementation of the MCS-251 family. It’s about 3.19 times faster
on average then the MCS-251 family. The Dhrystone v2.1 benchmark score is 0.258
The PALM8051 core is an instruction set compatible implementation of the MCS-51
family. The 8051 core executes the instruction in a single clock cycle instead of
the original 12 cycles per instruction execution time.
Palmchip Launches AcurX Platform with PALM80251 Microcontroller for the Smart Grid
Home Area Network (HAN) Markets
Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) June 07, 2011
Palmchip launches the PALM80251 microcontroller
for the smart grid home area network (HAN) markets. The PALM80251’s architecture
has been enhanced to provide performance improvements over the MCS-251 family. The
energy- and cost-efficient 80251 is based on a customized version of the Intel 80251
processor core together with silicon-proven peripherals targeting HAN appliances.
