Learn about the #EFM8 Series from Silicon Labratories! #electricalengineering

Silicon Laboratories has accumulated an extensive collection of 8-bit microcontrollers based on the 8051 architecture, and the new EFM8 series continues this tradition. The 8051 was originally developed by Intel in 1980, and this “8-bit microcomputer” (as it was first called) proved so successful that eventually numerous different manufacturers developed 8051-based microcontrollers. Two important reasons for the surprising endurance of this 35-year-old architecture are code compatibility and human compatibility: new devices benefit from both the vast quantity of existing 8051 code and the extensive experience provided by engineers who have previously worked with 8051-based microcontrollers. Obviously, though, much has changed in the world of microelectronics since 1980, so current manifestations of the 8051 incorporate a variety of improvements in performance and functiona...
