silicon labs 8051 rtc

Hi,
I have chosen the plain vanilla 8051(ATMEL AT89S52, to be precise) for all my projects till date. Using the plain vanilla was an excellent learning opportunity for me to get to know about interfacing many widely used peripherals.

Now, however I do feel that I should make a transition to some more advanced variants of 8051 and make use of the versatility of this excellent micro.

To this end, I would want any advice from you in choosing the best 8051 variant to fulfill my requirements, which are:

1. On chip RTC
2. On chip ADC/DAC
3. On chip temperature sensor(??)
4. On chip stepper motor controller(??)
5. Higher memory, possibly 64k on chip ROM and more RAM too.
6. On chip LCD driver
7. Or anything I might have missed to put in here.

I would be grateful if I can get any pointers from this board. And just to add, I did my homework by searching on the net, but considering the zillions of 8051 variants available today, I was literally swamped with information! So hoping you guys would be available to provide me with some pointers.

thanks in advance!

P.S. I got some Analog devices micros which have ADC/DAC on chip but wanted to know if there are better alternatives which have all of the above.

Philips (NXP) and DS 8051 are rich in peripherals.
