A web site that is dedicated exclusively to the 8052 mirocontroller, related products (both hardware and software), and 8052 derivative chips. (wayback version as site is shutdown)
This includes the traditional 8052, 8051, 8032, and 8031 along with more modern derivatives such as the Atmel AT89S8252, and many derivatives by Silicon Laboratories, Philips, and many others.

The 8052.com SBC is a single-board computer designed to be both useful and instructive in illustrating certain concepts commonly encountered in 8052-based development. Designed to compliment The 8051/8052 Microcontroller Book that was authored by Craig Steiner, the webmaster of 8052.com.
The board was developed with the Atmel AT89S8252/AT89S8253 and Dallas DS89C420 in mind but can be used with any 40-pin 8052 pin-compatible derivative including the traditional true-blue 8052, 8051, 8032, 8031, etc..
SBCs were very popular before about the year 2000. Short of expensive in-circuit emulators (ICE), SBCs were one of the cheapest ways to quickly test 8052 firmware and/or experiment with the 8052 and attached devices….
