8/16/32 bit optimized offering

Dolphin Integration offers a wide range of microcontroller cores, starting with the 8-bit industry standard 8051, extended with 16-bit 80251 compatible, and going up to 32-bit.

All our offering was build in order to insure a smooth evolution from CISC solutions to new generation of RISC microcontrollers 16 and 32-bit.

Various peripherals such as I/O ports, timers, co-processors, memory interface... are also available to fit specific application requirements.

Together with its microcontrollers cores, Dolphin Integration provides the most efficient application software development solution SmartVision™. SmartVision™ embeds advanced application software debug capabilities thanks to the modeling and simulation of the complete sub-system including processors, memories and peripherals. SmartVision™ also includes BIRD™ for on-chip debug.

The microcontroller offering from Dolphin Integration enables SoC designers to drastically reduce their Time-To-Market with the most optimized solution for their application requirements.
