In 1997 Palmchip invented the CoreFrame® System on Chip Architecture which pioneered the System on a single chip design for the consumer market, thus enabling high performance and low cost consumer devices.
Palmchip enabled Mass Storage, Disk Drive, SSD, Bluetooth communications, WiFi communications, Setup Boxes, Home Gateways, Internet Cameras and Smartcard devices.
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 DMIPS/MHz. The PALM80251 has a total addressable memory of 16Mbytes of which 16Kbytes is implemented as on–chip program memory, 1KBytes of on-chip data RAM, and the rest as external memory which can be used as RAM or ROM.
Product Name: Palm8051
- Product Lifecycle Management
The 8051 is still a very popular controller which is being embedded in application specific system on chip (SoC) designs in today’s market. This can be seen from its usage in Wireless Sensor Networks, Home Appliance Network(HAN), Zigbee, RFID, and removable storage market areas. The migration toward cloud computing has increased demand for smart grid network, which enables remote green energy management, where at home appliances could be controlled from smart phones or PC to save energy. The Palm8051 has been designed keeping in mind this particular market.
