8051 MCU IP core is the industry's fastest

8051 MCU IP core is the industry's fastest
An 8051 MCU IP core, claimed to be the world’s fastest, has been introduced by DCD. Boasting a Dhrystone 2.1 performance rating of 0.27292 DMIPS/MHz, the DQ8051 IP core is 29.01 times faster than the original 80C51 chip operating at the same frequency. In addition, the IP core consumes as a little as 1.2µW/MHz. The closest competitor is 26 times faster than the original 80C51 chip and consumes almost two times more power than the DQ8051.

EV processors operate at more than 1000GOPS/W

Fully programmable and configurable vision processor IP cores, which combine the flexibility of software solutions with the low cost and low power consumption of dedicated hardware, have been introduced by Synopsys. The DesignWare EV52 and EV54 processors implement a Convolutional Neural Network that can operate at more than 1000GOPS/W, enabling fast and accurate detection of a wide range of objects such as faces, pedestrians and hand gestures at a fraction of the power consumption of competing vision solutions.
