Hi Ernst.

Is the 8051 a good choice for that?? I don´t know.
I worked with it for a long time, and like it too, but today with modern microcontrollers with a low price as arm, I have doubts about the effort to port something to 8051 plataform.

Regards and a happy new year to all

  Does anybody know about a port of Ethernut to an 8051-type chip?

  I think I remember an email asking the same some years ago, but I did not
  find any conclusive answers.
  Yes, the 8051 architecture has its limits, and there is no GCC support for
  it - SDCC seems to be an often used compiler. This would pose additional
  But looking at the sheer volume of 8051-architecture based chips still in
  use - wouldn't such a port help Nut/OS to establish itself further in the
  embedded market space? 

  What do you think?

  Regards & and a happy new year
