From the Publisher
This comprehensive text presents all of the topics required for an introductory course in the 8051 microcontroller. Starting at a rudimentary level --What is a microprocessor? What is a microcontroller? -- coverage evolves to encompass complete, finished design examples using such software tools as the assembler (ASM51), the linker (RL51), and the object-to-hex conversion utility (OH). Additionally, a simple single-board, 10-chip computer project is provided. This hands-on project is easy-to-build, and develops into a working prototype 8051 computer that can be used in the classroom or lab to demonstrate principles.

From the Back Cover
Beginning at a rudimentary level and progressing to advanced concepts and finished design examples, this introduction to microcontrollers emphasizes architecture and programming (rather than electrical details) and explores the hardware and software features of the MCS-51 family of microcontrollers specifically. Discusses software topics in the context of Intel's assembler (ASM51) and linker/locator (RL5 1) and the object-to-hex conversion utility (OH). Offers thorough discussion of the 8051 10-chip the serial-port, timers, and interrupts. Provides easy-to-follow, incremental instruction in the 8051 instruction set, with annotated examples of programs, assembler operations, and linker operations. Discusses advanced programming methods e.g., a variety of structured programming structures, pseudo code, and assembly language programming style. Features an easy-to-build computer project with a chip-by-chip description and schematic for building the 10-chip single-board SBC-51 computer. Offers a listing of an 8051 monitor program (MON51) with complete documentation. Includes manufacturer's data sheet and instruction set definitions. For practicing electronics technicians or engineers interested in learning about microcontrollers.
