Overview

Maximize 8051 software performance, reliability, and efficiency-hands-on!

This is the first complete, hands-on guide to optimizing C-based applications for the 8051 microcontroller. Based on the most popular chipset in today's consumer products, it delivers great ideas and expert C code you can adapt to your own real-world applications, whatever they are. From project planning through key design tradeoffs, you'll find powerful insights that will streamline your coding and enhance your results. Coverage includes:

  • Making the most of multitasking and real-time operating systems
  • Building an operating system kernel-from scratch
  • Working with internal and external peripheral devices
  • Algorithms for enhancing performance
  • Two highly detailed start-to-finish projects

In addition to extensive sample code, the book contains practical techniques and flowcharts for streamlining the development process, design approaches that minimize the amount of external hardware required, and much more. Most examples will work with the entire 8051 family, including the Philips 751 and 552, 517, 552, 558, and DS5000 series.

Whether you're an engineer, student, or serious hobbyist, if you want to maximize the efficiency of your embedded applications, you need C and the 8051, Volume 2: Building Efficient Applications.

CD-ROM INCLUDED!

The accompanying CD-ROM contains Keil's assembler, C compiler, and linker in a limited version for the 8051 family, along with extensive source code-including all the source code from this book and from C and the 8051, Volume 1: Hardware, Modular Programming, and Multitasking.

Also look for C and the 8051, Volume 1: Hardware, Modular Programming, and Multitasking, a great introduction to building software for embedded systems based on the 8051 family.
