How to Use Keil

I can safely assume that you’re a beginner (that’s why you’re here) and recently got introduced to Keil uVision. You want to compile your own code (or worse, you’re compelled to do so) and have no idea how it works. It doesn’t matter if you have chosen Assembly or C Language for yourself but what’s important now is that you need an environment specially designed for the 8051 micro-controller. Basically you’re looking for an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that can help you build and compile programs. Keil uVision is one of them and this is a step-by-step tutorial on how to use it.  Read More

8051 Simulators

It’s always exciting to give some practical shape to any of your idea (at least for some of us out there, it is). Successful output doubles the fun. Same goes for 8051 micro-controller. You have probably designed something and written / compiled a program code for it and you are almost ready to put it to test. Will it work? I know it’s tempting and you can’t really wait but there is still one essential step before jumping on to the implementation phase – simulation.

Programming Language for the 8051

If coding is your thing then you are most probably familiar with some of the programming languages out there and have experience in writing programs and compiling them. If not, then I strongly suggest you check out the basics of programming. Writing codes for the 8051 micro-controller is not any different. You choose a coding language and start writing codes in the development environment. That’s all it takes. Read More
