AMI Semiconductor Integrates 8051 Core

December 17, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

AMI Semiconductor Inc. (AMIS, Pocatello, ID), a leader in the design and manufacture of application-specific integrated circuits, announced that the company has combined the popular 8051 processor core with its own I3T80 mixed-signal, high-voltage technology to deliver leading-edge system-on-a-chip devices for the automotive, industrial and medical markets.

The new products offer a unique range of accelerated (x7) embedded 8051 cores, Flash memory, high-voltage performance and precision analog capability on a 0.35-micron geometry CMOS process. With the use of I3T technology it is possible to integrate all these elements onto a single piece of small geometry silicon resulting in a solution that significantly reduces the component count for a given application.
