#190709 - 8051 Not Ended For Sure
Responding to: Steve M. Taylor's previous message
I have used the SiLabs C8051 parts for numerous hobby projects in the last few years.

At my regular day job we have been using 8051 architecture embedded cores for the controllers that manage the power and reset sequencing for complex chips with >1300 pins. I have owned the firmware for these beasts of chipsets.

Use of 8051 cores continue on into the future for some of the simpler devices. Unfortunately as technology marches forward 32-bit cores are taking the place of the old 8051 cores for the more complex devices.
