“The fastest ARM System-on-Module today! leverages the cutting edge of mobile computing for embedded and industrial product designs.”

delabs Ideas and Notes-

When you see things like Smartphones and Tablets you know that embedded developers are more empowered today. This is due to the fact that component technologies have advanced rapidly, more zap for a given footprint.

More Memory, Less Power Consumption, Excellent Computing Power. Interactive Display (Touch Screen) have just made amazing things possible within a limited Gadget Real Estate.

When uC – uP pack more juice for a given battery life and configurable OS like Linux are used. The OS will not be a burden on the CPU.

Regulated Resource usage + Good CPU power = Fast Gadget Apps

A Pascal powered Integrated Development Environment for 8051 Microcontrollers. It has a Project manager for Assembler and Pascal projects. MC-51 is an IDE for the 8051/80C31 and others. This is from the Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics – Microcontroller course pages.

Integrated Development Environment for 8051 Microcontrollers

To communicate with a microcontroller experimentation board via the serial interface, MC-51 provides a terminal mode. The required parameters for the connection can be adjusted using the main menu. The microcontroller needs to be programmed with an appropriate monitor program (e.g. PAULMON)..

Integrated Development Environment for 8051

The simulator lets you test small programs without any external hardware. It contains all common debugging features (Run, Stop, Single step, Step over subroutine, Run to selected line). You can execute the program step-by-step or set breakpoints anywhere in the program.

The simulator displays the source code with program labels as well as the compiled hex code and the program addresses. All registers and memory locations can be inspected and changed if desired. Numbers may be displayed as hex, decimal or binary values.

Main Features

  • Text editor with syntax highlighting to create Assembler and Pascal sources
  • Interface to the Pascal compiler Turbo51 by Igor Funa
  • Interface to the assembler ASEMW by W.W. Heinz
  • Integrated simulator and debugger for all basic 8051 functions including timer and serial interface
