    Until you learn how to take and post a properly focused pic, I'd say
    **** off, zakiBoy.

    Nice try but:

    What the heck is a *.mht file?

    It looks like it uses a windowed EPROM version not an program in place

    "We are made Pcb Design, Boards and prototypes for you where ever you
    are Just Contact Us" is extremely bad english.

    I can almost steal your design by looking at the picture. Please post
    a clearer one so that I can start making them too. :)
  4. Micros**t HTML, which combines images and text into one file.
    Probably an Atmel AT89Sxxx. Looks like it requires your development
    computer to have a serial port.
    How's your Arabic? Presntation aside, there's sure not enough
    information there to encourage anyone to contact the OP with a serious
    That kind of kit is best supplied out of South China.

    Where is "315 EGP" from ??

    Do I want to send money there ??

    ....and isn't supported by Gecko. (Some find that to be a big flaw.)

    Oh so its like a text version of the the standard MS *.VIM (Virus
    Install method) files.
    That isn't such a bad way to go. RS232 debugging stuff can easily be
    on the far side of an optical isolator.

    It looks sort of like a hobbiest trying to turn the hobby into a
    business. As such, I guess it isn't too bad of an idea.

    Guangzhou has fairly good German style beer too.

    Where did you get the board? From a museum? Come on, 8051 is ancient.
    Move on to ARM or something like that. An NXP LPC2103 is probably
    cheaper and more powerfull than the pre stone age Atmel on your board.

    By the way, I really like the slogan 'The price is.. surprise'. I'll
    forward it to the sales department tomorow.

    I suppose EGypt Pounds. Makes sens with the name 'Mohammed'. Chinese
    like to assume western names.

    Whew, I gotta get a new pair of glasses - can't see
    a thing. Maybe I need my wife to clean them. Whoa,
    wait a minute now, I can see this text just fine.
  11. Which brand do you like?

    It is a world wide standard. There are many makers, it has a much
    nicer instruction set than the silly old PICs. You can get a nice
    macro assembler for it so what else would anyone want?

    Nobody should be allowed to call themselves a programmer if they don't
    know the 8051s instruction set.

  13. Don't really need a developer's kit for it either, however, but yes, it
    is still in very wide use, and quite effective for many industrial design

    The same goes for ARM.

    No, 8051s rule!

    "reduced instruction set" humbug. If you hadn't made it all big and
    bloated in teh first place you wouldn't have needed to put it on a

    This is true.

    I bet most people would be surprised where they would find an 8051
    device in their every day life.


    PS: I am working on a device that uses Silabs 8051 devices, we build
    1000 units a week and ship around the world.

    PPS: google for AMR

    I bet most people would find even more PIC devices in their every-day life.
    Programmed in C or assembly?
  18. MooseFET

    The folks at Silabs have almost made life just a little too easy.
    Their tools almost work under wine.

    It is kind of a shame that their 8051s top out at 100MIPs. I would
    really like one that did about double that.

    Also, IMO they made a mistake in how they did the equates for the SFRs
    and how the pages counted. They should have made the reset case the
    0FFH page and done this:

    All the SFRs that appear in all pages have equates that run from 80H
    to FFH. All the ones that are in only one page have the page number
    as the upper byte of the equate. There is no page zero so things
    can't be confused. This way, if you forget an use a register that
    only appears in one page, you get an error on the number not fitting
    into a byte.

    This I am also sure about.

    C is the assembly of a new generation.

    It uses floating point as well.

    Good man. If those IC manufacturers insist on giving us, e.g., 32KB of flash
    ROM for a quarter, one might as well let a C compiler fill it up and save some
    development time in the process. :)
