Evatronix Fastest 8051 Now Fully Supported by µVision4

Bielsko-Biala/Poland, Aug 10, 2009 - The silicon Intellectual Property (IP) provider, Evatronix SA, today announced the full support of its R8051XC2 microcontroller IP, the world's fastest 8051 compatible design, by the ARM® Keil™ µVision4 Integrated Development Environment. Starting today users of all Keil µVision tools suites can make use of all the advantages of the most popular 8-bit controller architecture in the market.

"The µVision®4 IDE builds on the success of what is widely acknowledged as the most popular development environment for microcontrollers," said Mark Onions, Director of Marketing, System Design Division at ARM. "Now, with support for the R8051XC2 processor, developers using the 8051 architectures can benefit from faster hardware and software development and verification."

"The joint forces of Keil µVision4 and R8051XC2 offer a level of application development ease that is unmatched in the 8-bit world," said Maciej Pyka, 8051 Product Line Manager at Evatronix. "Both companies have done a huge leap forward over the last year, and the effort now pays off with the benefits for our customers."

About Keil µVision4 Integrated Development Environment

µVision®4 has been designed to enhance developer's productivity, enabling faster, more efficient program development and verification. The flexible window management system introduced in µVision4 enables developers to use multiple monitors and provides complete control over window placement anywhere on the visual surface. The new user interface makes better use of the screen space and organizes multiple windows more efficiently; delivering an uncluttered, efficient environment to develop applications.

About Evatronix R8051XC2 microcontroller IP

The R8051XC2 is the newest iteration of the Evatronix 8051 microcontroller IP, which over its 12 year evolution has been successfully implemented in more than 200 designs worldwide. The R8051XC2 is the fastest 8051 IP core ever compiled under Keil µVision IDE, with a performance gain of up to 12 times, compared to the original Intel chip operating at the same frequency.

To facilitate application development, the R8051XC2 is featured with highly configurable implementation options, as well as a set of peripherals with I2C, SPI, UART and others that can be trimmed to customer requirements.

The R8051XC2 is ready to work with the Evatronix Application-debugging Support Environment (EASE), consisting of a built-in On Chip Debug Support module, Evatronix Debug Pod for hassle free communication between FPGA prototype and PC, and the Evatronix Debug Interface for Keil µVision IDE.
Also, for rapid USB, Ethernet or HDLC SoC design, the R8051XC2 can be delivered as an integrated development with these peripherals and corresponding software IP.
