Board has a magnificent set of on-board modules: Serial Ethernet, Serial Flash, Serial RAM, Serial EEPROM, MMC/SD card, CAN, USB-UART, two RS-232 connectors, and more.
Provided MCU card contains powerful C8051F040 MCU. It is a 25 MIPS, 64 kB Flash, 100-Pin Mixed-Signal MCU, with 12-bit DAC, CAN, SM-Bus and other peripherals.
We have put a lot of thought into the board design to make it beautiful and compact, and we used only the highest quality SMD components for production.
We have equipped the board with four serial memory modules including EEPROM, RAM, Flash and MMC/SD mass storage, so you won’t lack memory any more.
System comes with fast USB Debug Adapter - programmer from Silicon Laboratories.The USB Debug Adapter provides the interface between the PC’s USB port and the C8051Fxxx’s in-system debug/programming circuitry.
Drivers and Software for the programmer, as well as User Manual can be found on folowing locations:
* mikroElektronika 8051 compilers currently do not support hardware debugging.
BIG8051 development system fully supports following 8051 microcontrollers from Silicon Laboratories:
Hover your cursor over the desired module hot spot to get more information
You can attach four analog inputs using hi-quality ADC Input Screw Terminal Connectors. They are connected to CH0 – CH3 analog channels of the microcontroller.
Board contains MCP2551 CAN controller chip connected to screw terminal connector. This way you can implement industry-standard CAN communication with your device.
You can use on-chip comparator module with all it’s features and advantages, and test your program using comparator potentiometers connected to CP0+ and CP0- pins.
Convert digital signals to analog voltage levels using 12-bit MCP4921 DAC chip with SPI interface. It has two separate DAC channels and is connected to output Screw Terminal.
You can place GLCD 128x64 display directly on the board and firm it in place securely using high-quality plastic distancer, specially designed for this purpose.
IDC10 JTAG/C2 male connector should be used for programming the microcontroller using external programmer/debugger.
Board is equipped with LCD 2x16 connector which allows you to connect LCD 2x16 display and place it securely using plastic distancer, specially designed for this purpose.
Monitor your program execution, or create all sorts of visual signalization using on-board 64 LEDs. SMD LEDs emmit high power red light.
Hi-quality MCU card contains powerful C8051F040 microcontroller. It is a 25 MIPS, 64 kB Flash, 100-Pin Mixed-Signal MCU, with 12-bit DAC, CAN, SM-Bus and other peripherals.
MMC/SD Card slot allows you to store large ammounts of data externally on MMC/SD card using fast SPI communication.
Piezo buzzer gives you the ability to create audio signalization in your prototype. Buzzer is driven with a transistor circuit that boosts the output signal to appropriate levels.
All MCU pins have been traced to the the appropriate IDC10 connectors. Each port pin can be pulled up or down using DIP switch and the appropriate voltage selection jumper.
On Board Power Supply Regulator provides stable and smooth voltage and current levels to all on-board modules. You can provide wide rande of 9-32V DC or 7-23V AC input power.
Specialized Reset Circuit ensures safe reset of the microcontroller.
Implement standard UART communication with RS-232 voltage levels using high quality RS-232 A connector. Neccessary voltage levels are created with MAX3232 chip.
Implement standard UART communication with RS-232 voltage levels using high quality RS-232 B connector. Neccessary voltage levels are created with MAX3232 chip.
You can store 8x256 bytes of configuration data or other data into on-board 24AA01 Serial EEPROM with I2C interface.
This module allows your application to have ethernet connectivity. Fast Serial Ethernet module and RJ11 connector are all you need to implement ethernet communication.
Store up to 8 Mbit of data in M25P80 Serial Flash Memory with 25 MHz SPI Bus Interface. It suports over 100,000 Erase/Program Cycles per Sector and has over 20 Year Data Retention.
On-board Serial RAM memory based on 23K640 offers you the power to store your variables and temporary calculation results, and therefore free on-chip RAM for other purposes.
You can use Touch Panel input with your prototype devide using on-board Touch Panel Controller circuitry.
Fast on-board FTDI chip (FT232RL) with USB connector, allow you to communicate with a PC or other UART devices using USB-UART connection.
Board is designed to support optional MRF24J40MA ZigBee RF module. You can control your devices remotely using the development system as a command station.
Board supports Dallas DS18S20 One-Wire temperature sensor. You can measure temperatures from -55°C to +125°C (-67°F to +257°F) with 0,5°C accuracy, using 1-wire bus.
Using the on-board
power supply unit is the most
reliable way to power the board
You can power the board in two ways, depending on power consumption of used on-board or additional modules.
USB-UART connector can be used to provide the power to the board. You should be able to run all on-board modules, including GLCD display and Ethernet. You should know that you can draw maximum of 500mA from the PC USB port.
This is the best and most reliable way to power the board. You can provide enough power to utilize all on-board modules and extra boards you need.
