​​Welcome to MicroCore Labs


Welcome to Edward's project website, MicroCore Labs!  Recently I have been working on ultra-small footprint, microsequencer based, embedded processor cores which can be implemented in any FPGA or ASIC technology. Some of the cores include the 8086/8088 compatible MCL86 and the 8051 compatible MCL51 cores.  I have also implemented a Lockstep Quad Modular Redundant system which uses the MCL51 core. An application note is available under the Applications tab and a video demonstration is available on my YouTube channel.


At this time I believe my cores hold the records for:

- World's smallest implementations of the Intel 8088/8086 and Intel 8051 processors.

- World's only cycle compatible Intel 8088 core.

- World's only four-core 8051 microcontroller.

- World's only lockstep quad modular redundant microcontroller that can rebuild itself.

- The MCL86 used to create the world's fastest PCjr!!!

- The MCL86 is the only core that has successfully run the 8088 MPH demo.
