Wind River recently added a couple of new processor models to Simics: the 30-year-old 80186 and the 32-year-old 8051.
I have a blog post about this up on the Wind River tools blog. Pretty amazing to see us model an eight bit machine in 2012 – just proves how long-lived some hardware systems are.
One thought on “Wind River Blog: 80186 and 8051”
Do you know by chance if the 80186 or 8051 original designers are still alive? 🙂 It wouldn’t come to a surprise if they are not. Couple these processors with a solar panel and they should last some hundreds of years.
