The W65C02S is a low power 8–bit microprocessor utilized in products for the Automotive, Consumer, Industrial, and Medical markets. This chip features a full external data (8–bit) and address (16–bit) bus for easy integration with 8–bit peripherals and memory.

The hard core IP (intellectual property) is in the industry standard GDSII format. The buffer ring has been designed with off-chip drivers, including latch-up and ESD protection. When the core is embedded, the off-chip buffer ring is replaced with OCB (On-Chip-Bus) interface ring. The abstract cell is the connecting points with labels that provide core verification and system verification. WDC's test programs require that all test pins be compared to the standard test vendors.

The W65C02 Soft Core is a RTL (Register Transfer Level) description in Verilog HDL (Hardware Description Language). This single clock logic architecture is technology independent. WDC's W65C02 Soft Core is designed to replace the industry standard W65C02 8-bit microprocessor and can be used as a drop-in replacement in ASIC's.
