    Design of a 8051 Microcontroller in FPGA with Reconfigurable Instruction Set

    Abstract : This paper describes the design and implementation of a version of the 8051 microcontroller, one of the most commercially used microcontrollers in FPGA with reconfigurable instruction set. Reconfigurable systems offer a solution to solve complex problems by combining the speed of hardware with the flexibility of software to improve performance and system performance [1]. The aim of this paper is to present the development of a simplified version of the 8051 microcontroller combining the technical configuration of the set of instructions executed in development time and the same dynamic reconfiguration at runtime. The microcontroller uses proposed more than a fixed set of instructions, with only one active at…
