bcd to hex
If 504 is the decimal, convert the 5 and the 0 and the 4 to four bit binary numbers and string them together. 0101 0000 0100 is the answer. Or without spaces 010100000100

hex to bcd conversion
hi
BCD code of every number is completely like decimal and does't depend
on hex fomat, it means that when you have the number 504 in decimal, it's BCD code has 4 bit for digit 4, 4 bit for digit 0 and 4 bit for the digit 5 ( and BCD has no digit more than 9), so in every 8 bit register, you have 2 BCD numbers, so your number will be
0000'0101 0000'0100

hex to bcd converter
thanks for replying but if i have a 16bit value or a 32 bit value in that case how will the code be written with 8051 microcontroller. cause the value in the programming will be hexadecimal .suppose the value in hex is 2ED(h) then how to convert this to BCD form.

Salam,
You will find a code here

in PIC but you can convert it to 8051 becuase it use simple Bitwise instructions
Bye

conversion hex to bcd
It seems that lot of people have problem with BCD.
BCD stands for Binary Coded Decimal. As we all know decimal numbers have range from 0 to 9, thanslated to binary it is 0b0000 to 0b1001. As the decimal digit occupies no more than 4 bits any 8 bit variable (or register) can contain TWO decimal digits in it's two 4bit chunks called nibbles.
If you take some datasheets for RTC chips, that's the way of keeping Hours, Minutes, Secinds in only 3 bytes.
