I am looking for recommendations for an 8051 development board. I want something with many peripherals for testing.

Currently I am thinking about the MikroE Easy8051 board. Any comments or other suggestions? is the Big8051 worth the extra $$?

Thanks!

It's an expensive board....really.

If you want to move in asm with many devs that can be a good solution, but if you want to develop programming in high level language, look for something more cheap....

take care,

Hello cthulhiac,

take a look at the Waveshare range of 8051 boards.
They use mostly Silicon Labs devices.
They also have an expansion board with peripherals.
These devices allow "Pin Mapping" an can debugged via JTAG!

The
> MikroE Easy8051 board
is very limited to "14-, 16-, 20-, 28-, 40-pin PLCC44 and PLCC32 MCUs".
It does not support JTAG for appropriate 8051 devices.

For more peripherals use a breadboard with breakout boards.
Microchip has also I2C/SPI-demonstration kits.

Edit:
I just have seen, that Waveshare has dropped all 8051 boards.



Best Regards

Check Digikey site

look for : Evaluation Boards - Embedded - MCU, DSP   8051

You will find many even from silabs too...

enjoy.

Thank you all for the suggestions. I decided to go for the Silicon Labs BB52 explorer kit.

For $16 you can't beat the price!

Very old IBM-SCSI-Disks (1 GB) are a good source for 8052 controllers.
The necessary address latch and a 8 kByte SRAM are also included Smiley.

But You have to remove the controller from the PCB to reprogram it
with a monitor program.
I have done this years ago.
And its still working Smiley.

Have fun with Your kit.


Best Regards
