Unlike traditional embedded systems references, this book skips routine things to focus on programming microcontrollers, specifically MCS-51 family in 'C' using Keil IDE. The book presents seventeen case studies plus many basic programs organized around on-chip resources. This "learn-through-doing" approach appeals to busy designers. Mastering basic modules and working hands-on with the projects gives readers the basic building blocks for most 8051 programs. Whether you are a student using MCS-51 microcontrollers for project work or an embedded systems programmer, this book will kick-start your practical understanding of the most popular microcontroller, bridging the gap between microcontroller hardware experts and C programmers.
