If you mean standalone, readmade CPU's, then I do not know any avaliable
commercially. The IP can be bought today.
Devices using this techniques are available : for instance the p87cl888
contains an async 8051.
People in our site (NXP semiconductors ) have used Tangram. Maybe I
should get me some prototypes.
