Source Code and Other Files

  • Asem-51 is an 8051 assember that will assemble the Basic-51 source code without errors. The binary file that results is identical to that in the 80C52-Basic. (135k)

  • Madis Kaal has an improved 8052-Basic and many projects, including an IDE interface.

Other Resources

  • Try out the 8052-Basic chip on the web. This is an actual system that you can control remotely. Enter commands and enter and run your own programs. From the Remote Experiment Lab at the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina in Brazil. (In Portuguese and English).

  • One of many source's for Russ Hersch's 8051 FAQ.

  • eg3 has an extensive list of 8051 Internet Resources.

  • I've written some magazine articles on microcontroller-related topics.
