Hello, I want to get started on an 8051 project. I already know C. What I am looking for is an 8051 eval board that comes with a C compiler, flash burner, code debugger, etc... In other words, I want to develop some basic, generic 8051 code in C, compile, link, download it into eval board and then debug/run it. I do not need any of the new flavors of the 8051. Any ideas where I can pick o...

Hi, I have an 8051 controller that communicates over RS485 to other 8051 controller. The communication is half-duplex at baud of 57600, and it works great. So far so good. Lately, I'm trying to make the 8051 device talk with a PC, since it is 57600 and I have RS232 RS485 converter this should be simple. I'm encountering strange problems at the 8051 reception, I never received what I se...

Greetings all 8051 Gurus, I am familiar with 8051 for some years now. I even did my graduation project work over it. That time however all the resources were available at school and all I used at that time was hand coded ASM and an universal programmer. How I managed without a board I still get baffled. ;-) But now, the fire to develop over 8051 has be kindled again and I want to reliv...

I need to send short RF messages (approx: 2 bytes) between 8051 devices. How do I make sure that the messages are not tampered and that the message really came from the device? I was thinking of using CMAC AES. But found out that AES isn't efficient on 8051. How do I generate untamperable messages in 8051? Thanks

Are there any recommendations for 8051 DeviceNet driver source code for a slave device? We are presently using Silicon Labs 8051 and the Keil compiler and tools. Silicon labs had a link to a supplier but they are no longer support the Silicon Labs 8051 for some reason. I don't mind paying for quality. Thanks, Peter Nachtwey
