Learn Embedded Systems with one of the most influential and basic microcontrollers in history, 8051

I believe that anyone can learn and experiment with technology.

All that is needed is the desire to learn and the right guidance.  That’s the reason, this course is focused on both

  • absolute beginners and

  • intermediate developers in embedded systems.

What topics are covered inside this course?

Let me show you…

We’re going to study about embedded systems with 8051 microcontrollers in this course.8051 is by far one of the oldest microcontrollers which are still used today. With over 70+ different manufacturers, 8051 is available in a variety of flavors. What makes it special is the simplicity it offers to the programmers and developers. Being one of the first microcontrollers, the architecture of 8051 is quite simple with very few basic features. 

What Will You Learn in this Micro Controller Programming Course??

    In this course, we’ll study 8051 with embedded C programming. We’re going to study about the 8051 microcontrollers with Keil 8051 IDE. Keil Microvision is a very old and very popular IDE used for microcontroller programming.

    This is a hands-on driven course where we’ll be writing a lot of codes and trying out its outputs. We’re going to study 8051 microcontroller and its interfacing with a number of peripheral devices

Introduction To 8051 Microcontroller

8051 is the most common used microcontroller nowadays. If you are a newbie and trying to get your hands on the very first time with a microcontroller you will be advised to start with 8051. It is the most commonly used Microcontroller in Embedded System

8051 is an 8-bit microcontroller. It is built with 40 pins DIP (dual inline package), 4kb of ROM storage and 128 bytes of RAM storage, 2 16-bit timers. It consists of are four parallel 8-bit ports, which are programmable as well as addressable as per the requirement. An on-chip crystal oscillator is integrated in the microcontroller having crystal frequency of 12 MHz.

Software Installation for 8051

Keil IDE is the most popular software for any type of microcontrol Programming. It is easy to generate Hex file in it. It also support Assembly as well as C programming language. It has in build debugger tool to check output of program.

Along with Keil, —————Software is been used for Burning Hex file in microcontroler. Burning a file means uploading program file into the microcontroller.

Another Software is Protuse. This software is used for Simulation purpose. If you don’t have any hardware kit, then don’t worry! You can check the output with schematic GUI of this software. With this simulation process you can check how your program is working for each and every I/O devices.


Input and Output Interfacing

8051 microcontroller has 4 input-output port, namely Port0 (P0), Port1 (P1), Port2 (P2), Port3 (P3). Each port have specific function to be used as input or output. 

Learn how to make port use for input or output?, What are the Precaution?, etc.

Concepts on LED

A very basic device while doing any kind of experiment or interface is used is LED. LED is the small two terminal active device. Experimentation with LEDs are:

  • Blinking single LED
  • Blinking of 8 LEDs
  • Alternate Blinking of 8 LEDs
  • LED chaser
  • LED with switch


 Concepts On Serial

Serial communication means using Desktop PC as an Input or Output device mainly as a display. You can’t directly connect 8051 controller to the PC with wired connector, for connecting it RS232C IC is needed. Topics to be covered in this are:

  • Concept of RS232C
  • Serial V/S parallel data transfer
  • Functions for serial communication
  • Output on Serial
  • Using Serial as an Input


Concepts On LCD

Commonly used device as an output for display is the LCD. Liquid Crystal Device or LCD is mostly available in 16 X 2 or 32 X 4, 16 X 4 alphanumeric format. Let’s get to know about:

  • Basic concept of LCD
  • Pin description of LCD
  • LCD interfacing
  • Program for LCD
  • Function for printing Number on LCD
  • Function for printing String on LCD

Interfacing with DC Motor and Relay


It is a magnetic switch, mostly used for indirect switching. So far, any automation is incomplete without relay. Learn:

  • Basic concept of relay
  • Interfacing of relay
  • Automation using relay

Interfacing DC Motor: 

The main purpose of DC interfacing with 8051 microcontroller is for controlling the speed of the motor. The DC motor is an electrical machine with a rotating part termed as a rotor which has to be controlled. For example, consider the DC motor whose speed or direction of rotation of DC motor can be controlled using programming techniques which can be achieved by interfacing with 8051 microcontroller. So, in this article let us discuss interfacing DC motor with 8051 microcontroller.

Barebone Controller Coding

Programming and using a microcontroller is not like using Arduino’s where you just write C code and download it into IC. This is a barebone coding experience where we’re going to learn the insights of 8051 microcontrollers and understand at the core how to write the program for each of its features. This single quality separates the hobbyists and professionals apart.

We’ll be using each feature of 8051 by completely studying the internal registers.
