I am going through a datasheet of AT89C51. The very first feature in the datasheet mentions it be --> Compatible with MCS-51™ Products. what does this mean exactly?

  • \$\begingroup\$ It means it will run all programs designed for the 8051, not limited to this particular MCU. \$\endgroup\$ – venny Sep 16 '15 at 10:00

Intel MCS-51, usually called 8051. Being compatible means the device uses the same instruction set as the 8051-devices so any code written for those should work on this AT89C51.
