Integrated Development Environment for 8051
A Pascal powered Integrated Development Environment for 8051 Microcontrollers. It has a Project manager for Assembler and Pascal projects. MC-51 is an IDE for the 8051/80C31 and others. This is from the Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics – Microcontroller course pages.
To communicate with a microcontroller experimentation board via the serial interface, MC-51 provides a terminal mode. The required parameters for the connection can be adjusted using the main menu. The microcontroller needs to be programmed with an appropriate monitor program (e.g. PAULMON)..
The simulator lets you test small programs without any external hardware. It contains all common debugging features (Run, Stop, Single step, Step over subroutine, Run to selected line). You can execute the program step-by-step or set breakpoints anywhere in the program.
The simulator displays the source code with program labels as well as the compiled hex code and the program addresses. All registers and memory locations can be inspected and changed if desired. Numbers may be displayed as hex, decimal or binary values.
