This course teaches you the basic fundamentals of embedded systems firmware development and hardware design using ATMEL 8051 Microcontrollers. The content of the course is designed with a hands-on/workshop approach. In this course, we don’t use any libraries. Instead we will be developing libraries for each peripheral and internal modules.
Each section have descriptive tutorials, workflow diagrams and explanations, hands-on videos, programming tips. The step by step tutorials will guide both beginners and advanced users to learn the fundamentals of embedded systems and interfacing.
Features of this course
- Learn driver development of various interfaces and internal modules
- Learn hardware design fundamentals of various interfaces
- Learn register level/bare metal programming
- Learn interrupt driven firmware development
- We haven’t used any firmware libraries for this course, instead we teach you how to create one for every interface
Write your own Driver APIs by dealing with the Peripheral Registers of the MCU !
Code and Implement APIs from scratch , diving into the datasheet and reference manual of the MCU. I will thoroughly explain how to extract the maximum information from datasheets, Technical Reference manuals to configure and handle peripherals. These techniques you can go and apply to any MCUs you have at your hand.
In this course I will walk you through step by step procedure how to Configure various Peripherals like GPIOs,SPI,USART,I2C by taking you into the reference manual and data sheet. We will develop fully working driver code, interrupt handlers, sample application everything from scratch to understand the big picture.
In each lecture, I assure you that, you will definitely learn something new that you can definitely use in your work or projects. You’ll find yourself handling these peripherals with much more clarity and you will be able to quickly speculate and debug the problem and I’ll show you tricks and tips to debug the most common problems using debugging tools such as logic analyzers.
This is not Arduino Style of programming!
I believe Arduino is for quick prototyping of products but not for Mastering Working of microcontrollers and its peripherals. Unlike Arduino programming where you come up with quick solution and prototyping of products using third party libraries, this course is entirely different. In this course no 3rd party libraries is used. Everything we will code by referring to the Technical reference manual of the MCU and create our own library. The Power of this approach is when things go wrong in your project work due to bugs, you can quickly able to speculate problem and debug like a pro. If one thing me and my students are good at is “debugging”. To achieve good debugging skills its very important you code by understanding how things works behind the scene but no by just blindly using some third party libraries and that’s the biggest TAKE away from this Course.

Extra Learning material provided for absolute beginner.
Straight to the point explanation.
This course is intended to give you complete details of hardware and software requirement of 8051 microcontroller programming. This course will help you to understand the working of I/O ports, timer, counter, interrupt and serial communication (UART) in microcontroller. You will be able to program 8051 microcontroller using assembly and embedded c language. Course will explain the interfacing of LED, switch, LCD, 7 segment with 8051 microcontroller. This course will also help you to understand process of burning the program into 8051 microcontroller and related terms hence will make you ready to create your own application project using 8051 microcontroller. At the end of course you will be doing two application project on 8051, one is generation of PWM wave to control speed of DC motor and second is wireless control of device using your smartphone and 8051.
The course makes it so easy to learn 8051 microcontroller programming, you will be building and testing out you own programs in no time. The course is delivered in such a way that anyone who takes the course will have absolutely no problem in understanding all the topics discussed. This course is packed full of practical step by step examples so that you are coding 8051 from day one. Same practical example is discussed in both Embedded C and Assembly language.
