Instant Performance Enhancement with Flash Microcontrollers

Abstract: The ultra-high-speed flash microcontrollers (UHSFM) are 5V, 1-clock 8051s with integrated flash and SRAM. These UHSFMs drop into existing 8051 applications and deliver an instant boost in speed. This application note discusses the simple steps that may be required to port an existing 8051 application to the UHSFM family. The benefits of doing so are described.
