Re: USB and 8051.

perhaps you should try one of Cypress's EZ-USB 8051 microcntrollers, they are deigned for USB applications. Or you may use a USB to UART converter such that of FTDI. CYpress has a wide range of micrcontrolers that support USB but they are not 8051 compatible. Also Microchip offers PIC18 USB micrcontrollers.

Re: USB and 8051.

There are many papers in the Circuit Cellar Inc regarding this topic. If you want it I will upload.

Re: USB and 8051.

Many good books are present in the e-book download section. I recommend USB Design by Example and USB complete.
Good luck

Re: USB and 8051.

FTDI (FT232BM or FT245BM) is the most easy way to interface your PC to an MCU ... they also come whit easy to use drivers ... (a DLL or a virtual com-port)

Re: USB and 8051.

The easiest way is to use an 8051 and a USB-to-UART Bridge.
I use Silicon Labs CP2102.
