8051 WHY PROGRAM 8051 IN C
We are going to use C language for 8051 programming but the question is that why we use C language in 8051.
There are many reason to program 8051 in C.
- It is easier and less time consuming to write in C than Assembly.
- C is easier to modify and update than Assembly.
- You can use program code available in function libraries.
- C code is easy to portable to other microcontroller with little modification in some line of code.
- C programming is less time consuming, but has larger hex file size than Assembly hex file. This is only disadvantage of C programming.
The Intel 8051 microcontroller is among one of the most popular general purpose microcontrollers in use today. The success of the Intel 8051 spawned a number of clones which are collectively referred to as the MCS-51 family of microcontrollers, which includes chips from vendors such as Atmel, Philips, Infineon, and Texas Instruments.
- 1947 Invention of Transistors.
- 1959 Invention of Integrated Circuits.
- 1971 Invention of Microprocessor.
- 1976 Invention of Microcontroller.
Today, over 50 companies produce variations of the 8051. 8051 cores are available for implementations in Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) or Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC). The 8051 was developed by Intel but other manufacturers (e.g., Siemens, Philips, Atmel, etc.) are second sources of this family of devices.
