Power saving mode on some derivatives One feature of the core is the inclusion of a boolean processing engine which allows bit -level boolean logic operations to be carried out directly and efficiently on select internal registers , ports and select RAM locations. Another feature is the inclusion of four bank selectable working register sets which greatly reduce the amount of time required to perform the context switches to enter and leave interrupt service routines. With one instruction, the can switch register banks, avoiding the time consuming task of transferring the critical registers to RAM. The main program then performs serial reads and writes simply by reading and writing 8-bit data to stacks. Derivative features[ edit ] As of [update] , new derivatives are still developed by many major chipmakers, and major compiler suppliers such as IAR Systems , Keil and Altium Tasking continuously release updates.

Later in they released a further improved version which is also 8 bit , under the name MCS The most popular microcontroller belongs to the MCS family of microcontrollers by Intel. Following the success of , many other semiconductor manufacturers released microcontrollers under their own brand name but using the MCS core.
Global companies and giants in semiconductor industry like Microchip, Zilog, Atmel, Philips, Siemens released products under their brand name.
Intel then released its first 16 bit microcontroller in , under name MCS Note:- Read the Story and History about Intel — the making of first Micro processor and more! So I will skim through mainly used packaging for See, availability of various packages change from device to device.
The basic architecture remains same for the MCS family. Schematic and Features The general schematic diagram of microcontroller is shown above. We can see 3 system inputs, 3 control signals and 4 ports for external interfacing. A Vcc power supply and ground is also shown.
Now lets explain and go through each in detail. System inputs are necessary to make the micro controller functional. Without proper power supply, no electronic system would work. Take a look at the schematic diagram below a functional microcontroller As mentioned above, control signals are used for external memory interfacing. You can also see a 0. Now lets go through pin configuration in detail.
Pin : Named as Vcc is the main power source. You may note some pins are designated with two signals shown in brackets. Pins Known as Port 0 P0. If there is no external memory requirement, this pin is pulled high by connecting it to Vcc. Pins- Known as Port 2 P 2. Pin Named as Vss — it represents ground 0 V connection. Pins 18 and Used for interfacing an external crystal to provide system clock.
Pins 10 — Known as Port 3. This port also serves some other functions like interrupts, timer input, control signals for external memory interfacing RD and WR , serial communication signals RxD and TxD etc. This is a quasi bi directional port with internal pull up. Pin As explained before RESET pin is used to set the microcontroller to its initial values, while the microcontroller is working or at the initial start of application.
Pins 1 — Known as Port 1. Unlike other ports, this port does not serve any other functions. Just look at the diagram above and you observer it carefully. The system bus connects all the support devices with the central processing unit. From the figure you can understand that all other devices like program memory, ports, data memory, serial interface, interrupt control, timers, and the central processing unit are all interfaced together through the system bus.
RxD and TxD serial port input and output are interfaced with port 3. They are Princeton architecture and Harvard architecture. Example:- micro controller is based on Harvard architecture and micro processor is based on Princeton architecture.
Thus has two memories :- Program memory and Data memory Program memory organization Now lets dive into the program memory organization 0f It has an internal program of 4K size and if needed an external memory can be added by interfacing of size 60K maximum. By default, the External Access EA pin should be connected Vcc so that instructions are fetched from internal memory initially. When the limit of internal memory 4K is crossed, control will automatically move to external memory to fetch remaining instructions.
If the programmer wants to fetch instruction from external memory only bypassing the internal memory , then he must connect External Access EA pin to ground GND. You may already know that has a special feature of locking the program memory internal and hence protecting against software piracy.
This feature is enable by program lock bits. Once these bits are programmed, contents of internal memory can not be accessed using an external circuitry. How ever locking the software is not possible if external memory is also used to store the software code.
Only internal memory can be locked and protected. Once locked, these bits can be unlocked only by a memory-erase operation, which in turn will erase the programs in internal memory too. Pipelining makes a processor capable of fetching the next instruction while executing previous instruction.
Its some thing like multi tasking, doing more than one operation at a time. Observe the diagram carefully to get more understanding. Register banks form the lowest 32 bytes on internal memory and there are 4 register banks designated bank 0, 1, 2 and 3. Each bank has 8 registers which are designated as R0,R1…R7. At a time only one register bank is selected for operations and the registers inside the selected bank are accessed using mnemonics R Other registers can be accessed simultaneously only by direct addressing.
Registers are used to store data or operands during executions. By default register bank 0 is selected after a system reset. The bit addressable ares of is usually used to store bit variables. The bit addressable area is formed by the 16 bytes next to register banks. They are designated from address 20H to 2FH total bits. We need only a bit to store this status and using a complete byte addressable area for storing this is really bad programming practice, since it results in wastage of memory.
The scratch pad area is the upper 80 bytes which is used for general purpose storage. In general cases, a quartz crystal is used to make the clock circuit. In some cases external clock sources are used and you can see the various connections above. Clock frequency limits maximum and minimum may change from device to device. Standard practice is to use 12MHz frequency. If serial communications are involved then its best to use Okay, take a look at the above machine cycle waveform.
One complete oscillation of the clock source is called a pulse. Two pulses forms a state and six states forms one machine cycle. Also note that, two pulses of ALE are available for 1 machine cycle. For reset to happen, the reset input pin pin 9 must be active high for atleast 2 machine cycles. During a reset operation :- Program counter is cleared and it starts from 00H, register bank 0 is selected as default, Stack pointer is initialized to 07H, all ports are written with FFH.

8051 Microcontroller Assembly Language Programming
Example 2 What is a Programming Language? Programming in the sense of Microcontrollers or any computer means writing a sequence of instructions that are executed by the processor in a particular order to perform a predefined task. Programming also involves debugging and troubleshooting of instructions and instruction sequence to make sure that the desired task is performed. Like any language, Programming Languages have certain words, grammar and rules. There are three types or levels of Programming Languages for Microcontroller. These levels are based on how closely the statements in the language resemble the operations or tasks performed by the Microcontroller. This is the lowest level of programming languages and is the language that a Microcontroller or Microprocessor actually understands.
