Abstract

A timer module for an 8051 Microcontroller is designed from the ground up. It could potentially be integrated into a larger 8051 for use in lunar and Martian missions. It follows through a synchronous digital design flow from HDL code through layout verification. The timer shows functionality at 100MHz with some minor glitches.
