The Intel 8051 microcontroller is among one of the most popular general purpose microcontrollers in use today. The success of the Intel 8051 spawned a number of clones which are collectively referred to as the MCS-51 family of microcontrollers, which includes chips from vendors such as Atmel, Philips, Infineon, and Texas Instruments.
- 1947 Invention of Transistors.
- 1959 Invention of Integrated Circuits.
- 1971 Invention of Microprocessor.
- 1976 Invention of Microcontroller.
Today, over 50 companies produce variations of the 8051. 8051 cores are available for implementations in Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) or Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC). The 8051 was developed by Intel but other manufacturers (e.g., Siemens, Philips, Atmel, etc.) are second sources of this family of devices.
