delabs Notes

An excellent study area for both Students and Teachers in the EE Domain. The important part of practical experimentation and industrial interaction is of great value to students.

A student can also on his own have a small lab in his house and start building and programming to supplement his academic training. You can build your lab from scratch, build your own test equipment. Start Somewhere. Build something and sharpen skills.

Franklin Software 8051 Development Tools

Franklin Software 8051 Development Tools

ProView32 is a fully featured and Integrated Development Environment that provides smooth seamless access to all the tools in the professional developers arsenal. From editing to debugging, ProView32 can manage all aspects of product development for any member of the 8051 family.

ProView32 For 8051, 80C251, and XA

ProView32 For 8051

The project manager creates a link between the various files that comprise a project and the tools necessary to create that project. A project is dedicated to a target: 8051, 251 or XA; and each of the project's files are associated, by their file type, to the appropriate translating tool. C and assembler files are translated by the compiler and assembler, respectively. The linker manages object and library files, and output format conversion as necessary.

Steves Microcontroller Projects

"I design electronic and microcontroller based projects in my spare time. (when I can be bothered and I haven't spent another 12 hour day at the office) It used to be Microchip PIC based, due to their compact design, availablity, and free design software"
