What to know about the 8051 microcontroller instruction set?

In the previous 8051 Microcontroller Tutorial, we have seen about the 8051 Microcontroller Instruction Set and Addressing Modes. In this tutorial, we will take a look at the 8051 Microcontroller Assembly Language Programming, the structure of 8051 Assembly Language, example programs, etc.

How to create a Keil program for 8051?

We are using C51 version for 8051 devices. Start the Keil software. Go to the Project > New Project then choose a location to store your program, and give a name and Save. Now in the next window select the device from different manufacturers. We are selecting Microchip, and then by expanding we are selecting AT89C51 device and click ok.

What are the different programming languages for the 8051?

There are three types or levels of Programming Languages for 8051 Microcontroller. These levels are based on how closely the statements in the language resemble the operations or tasks performed by the Microcontroller.

Can you test a program on an 8051 simulator?

You can test your program using an 8051 simulator. Here is a big list of 8051 simulators available. In the beginning try the first one given in the list, Edsim51. Its an easy to use tool. To program any microcontroller available in this world, first you need to learn and understand it’s instruction sets.

Why was the 8051 called a system on a chip?

It was referred as system on a chip because it had 128 bytes of RAM, 4K byte of on-chip ROM, two timers, one serial port, and 4 ports (8-bit wide), all on a single chip. When it became widely popular, Intel allowed other manufacturers to make and market different flavors of 8051 with its code compatible with 8051.

How is multiplication performed in the 8051 instruction set?

Solution: Multiplication can be performed by adding the multiplicand repeatedly, as many times as that of multiplier. Consider the below table lists the conditional jumps instruction used in 8051
