|#183550 - Ramtron Versa... leaving... :-(|
Ramtron abandoned the Versa '51 line.
They purchased the Versa line from the Canadian Goal Semiconductor back then. They were already capable singleclockers with a load of interesting features, and Ramtron added a bit of FRAM to them (although only as a data memory).
Apparently, there's more to a successful microcontroller line than just a capable core and a set of features.
Meantime, if somebody wants to have FRAM built into microcontroller, albeit not a '51, but this time capable of running out of the FRAM, look at Fujitsu (Fujitsu's own F²MC-8FX 8-bit core) or TI offerings (TI's 16-bit MSP430 core).
