MCS1210

Started by Timo November 7, 2004
Hi to all,

Does anyone have a good alternative for software development on a
MCS1210 from Texas Instruments? The wickenhaeuser.com website is for
me the only c-compiler i know of that is usable. Is IAR systems also
possible to use? Anyone with experience with c-compilers on a MCS1210?
I'm used to work with IAR or HiTech for PICs but now i want to use it
with a MSC1210 (the one used in the Elektor project : Mini Webserver)
if possible. Any good open source compiler usable or a Free one with
no limits? Something like SDCC for 8051?

Best regards,

Timo

The Keil is the best bet.

Yes. I have used the Keil compiler. The MCS1210 was designed to work with the Keil compiler. /\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ \/\/\/\/\ Chris Hills Staffs England /\/\/\/\/\ /\/\/ chris@phaedsys.org www.phaedsys.org \/\/ \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/

I use SDCC and asx8051 to develop code for the MSC12xx. The generated code isn't quite as tight as that produced by a good commercial compiler, but it is quite usable. About all you'll need is the definitions for the MSC-specific registers. Look for application note SBAA109 on the TI web site (there are bugs in the script used to convert the header files). Marc
