Description

In this course, we will delve into the realm of assembly language programming, focusing on the utilization of instructions for programming 8051 Family Microcontrollers. It’s important to note that no physical hardware is required, as all the exercises will be performed within simulation software.

Throughout this course, we will:

  1. Explore the distinctions between Microprocessors and Microcontrollers.
  2. Investigate the various variants of Microcontrollers available.
  3. Discuss the criteria for selecting the appropriate Microcontroller for specific applications.
  4. Dive into the internal architecture of the 8051 Microcontroller.
  5. Gain proficiency in working with Hexadecimal numbers.
  6. Understand the concepts of Program Memory and Data Memory.
  7. Learn about Bit Addressability and its application to registers.
  8. Differentiate between a Program Counter and a Stack Pointer.
  9. Familiarize ourselves with the Keil Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
  10. Master the art of Single Byte Addition.
  11. Extend our knowledge to Double Byte Addition.
  12. Comprehend the significance of the Program Status Word (PSW) Flags.
  13. Grasp the concept of Overflow in addition operations.
  14. Recognize the importance of the stack in program execution.
  15. Implement assembly language programs, including:
    • Program 1: Calculating the Sum of the first five natural numbers.
    • Program 2: Achieving Multiplication through repeated addition.
  16. Gain proficiency in programming Input/Output (I/O) Ports.
  17. Implement Logical instructions for data manipulation.
  18. Understand the Single Bit Instructions for precise control.
