​​Welcome to MicroCore Labs


This is a website to demonstrate some of projects I am working on in a few areas of interest. Among them are the MCL86 and MCL51 which are ultra-small footprint, microsequencer based, Intel 8086 and 8051 processor cores as well as a Lockstep Quad Modular Redundant system which contains four MCL51 processor cores that can not only run in lockstep, but can rebuild themselves upon a failure and then rejoin the lockstep. More information is available under the Applications tab as well as a video demonstration on my YouTube channel.


MicroCore Labs notable projects:

- MCL86 and MCL51 are world's smallest Intel 8088/8086 and Intel 8051 processors cores.

- MCL86 is the only cycle compatible Intel 8088 core available.

- Implemented a four-core 8051 CPU using less space than a single gate-based 8051 core.

- Demonstrated a lockstep quad modular redundant system that can rebuild itself.

- MCL86 used to create the world's fastest IBM PCjr and the only core that has successfully run the 8088 MPH demo.
