#189989 - A good addition
Responding to: Jan Waclawek's previous message
Jan Waclawek said:

- SiLabs who pushes ARMs aggressively in the last years still has significant customers for the '51 (probably from automotive area)

There are plenty of 8 bit customers, in spite of the marketing noise.
Microchip reported increases in 8 bit sales, and in Asia there are many new 8051 variants.

Jan Waclawek said:

- SiLabs who was the "high-$" '51 producer ever since, dropped the prices to the 10s-cent area (compare with a similarly equipped 'F3xx).

What is significant, is they are the first USA vendor to join the Asian 8051 party.
The chip family is good, but the narrow Vcc range disappoints.

Others are already offering 1.8-5.5V - are the Americans now playing catch-up?
