proteus 8051 simulator

you can use RESONANCE RIDE 8.5, it will be very interactive and you can also write program using C..

using simulation in keil microvision

hi
proteus is the good s/w and u can simulate almost all the PIC controllers with it
and u can also go for different types of 8051 verients
try for it its very easy to use

PD

what is the use of a microcontroller emulator

Any good visual simulator where i can use some virtual stuff, like and lcd, 7-segment display, keypad, motors etc...? the one's i saw the only shawn the port state and ram / rom etc

simulador edsim

Hi,

the simulators mentioned are mostly instruction set simulator. Keil provides a device simulator including simulation for all the peripherals and this is included in the standard C-Compiler package. This is not a RTL but a C-based simulator.
As far as I know, Proteus has a cycle accurate simulator and it can be used for designing 8051 based chips. However the pricing is very different.

Well, frankly speaking I don't understand the purpose of such kind of simulator of virtual stuff like LCD, 7-segment display, keypad motors etc...

YES, are perfect for educational purpose and looks nice in a classroom.

But once the project done and perfectly working in the visual simulator, a lot of questions raised if then fails in real world on board.

The best simulator that worths the money spent is the EMULATOR. This expensive piece will help you clear all your doubts in real world with all your LCD, keypads and motors attached to the board.

If you're going to spend some money then use the freeware simulator that shows the port state and RAM/ROM etc, build your circuit and in the end use your lovely EMULATOR (and spend more time to learn how to use it rather than try to figure out what's going wrong with the code in real world, that works perfectly in the visual simulator).

You'll feel more comfortable rather than using that visual simulator.

You can rent or borrow one until you get enough money to purchase one.
It worths the investment.

8051simulator

Silvio,
a simulator can be there before a chip is available. Also small programs can be simulated with an evaluation version of the compiler without any investment in money. I agree that an emulator is the best tool but you better be sure which device you want to use when buying one.

all simulator types of 8051 simulator

Dear friend

Proteus VSM for 8051/8052 contains everything you need to develop and simulate embedded system designs based around the industry standard 80C31/80C51, 80C32/80C52, 80C54 and 80C58 microcontrollers originally developed by Intel™ including the Atmel AT89 and Philips 8051FX and 8051RX variants. The package includes:

· ISIS schematic capture for design entry.

· ProSPICE interactive simulation engine.

· CPU model library for one or more 80xxx processors (see below).

· The complete VSM peripherals library.

The package is available in both a Starter version (containing a single model for the 80C51 processor) and a Complete version (containing all our 80Cxx models including the Atmel and Philips variants).

If you wish to perform graph-based simulations you can purchase the Advanced Simulation option.

Designs produced in Proteus VSM can also be exported to one of our PCB Design products for physical board layout.

Best wishes :D
