** replaced with MIKROE-1382 mikroProg for 8051*** 8051prog2 (MIKROELEKTRONIKA)
8051prog2 is a fast USB 2.0 In-Circuit Serial Programmer (ICSP) for Atmel 8051 microcontrollers. Fast, on-board USB 2.0 programmer with a simplified driver installation.
The programmer is specifically designed for In-Circuit Serial Programming (ICSP).
When connected to a prototype device, the 8051prog2 programmer becomes IN-SYSTEM programmer.
With ZIF socket, it becomes a standard programmer used for a large-scale production.
One of the possible ways of connecting 8051prog2 to a microcontroller is via an IDC10 connector. Refer to figure on the right. You just have to place one 2x5 connector between the microcontroller and other on-board components. By embedding the 8051prog2 connector you will be able to perform 8051 In-System Programming.
The programmer's flat cable ending with an IDC10 female connector is used for connection. When creating a target device, the appropriate 10-pin male connector with 2.54 mm spacing between pins should be placed on it. The connector pins should be linked to the microcontroller pins. Their position varies depending on the microcontroller's type and package.
With complementary software, the 8051prog2 programmer represents a great tool for all those working with Atmel’s 8051 MCUs. The microcontroller is connected to the 8051prog2 programmer via 6 lines, two of which are +5V and GND, while others are MOSI, MISO, SCK and MCLR. Unlike programmers whose operation is based on bootloaders, and which need to place a part of their memory at bootload program's disposal, 8051prog2 programs microcontrollers externally so that the entire memory is available for the programmer.
The 8051prog2 programmer supports a wide range of Atmel's 8051 microcontrollers. Newly released 8051 MCUs will be supported by a new version of 8051Flash software that is updated regularly. Here is a list of microcontrollers supported by the programmer:
|Atmel 8051 Microcontroller Family|
The 8051prog2 programmer is packed in the protective box along with the relevant documentation and product CD. This box is very resistant to all kinds of damages and shocks. The package contains:
- 8051prog2 USB2.0 programmer.
- USB cable.
- CD with software and drivers.
- Printed documentation that includes: 8051prog2 Manual and Quick Guide for Installing USB Drivers.
