MCBX51: CUSTOMIZING MON51
Information in this article applies to:
The MCBx51 Evaluation Board is shipped with pre-installed Monitor-51 and Monitor-251 firmware. For the adaptation of chip-specific initialization, I need to reconfigure Monitor-51 and install it to the MCBx51. Must I also generate a Monitor-251 configuration?
Since the MCBx51 Board contains an address logic (PAL), it is unclear how to make a new Monitor-51 EPROM. Can you provide the steps for configuration?
You do not need Monitor-251 configuration if you plan running only 8051 devices on the MCBx51 board.
You may configure a new Monitor-51 for MCBx51 using the following settings:
Monitor Code : 0xE800 - 0xFFFF Monitor Data : 0xDF00 - 0xE7FF User Code/Data: 0x0 - 0xDEFF
For Monitor configuration:
The DIP-switch Settings for running this Monitor on MCBx51 are:
Connect the serial cable from the PC to INT_RS232 connector on the board. Since the Monitor is configured for automatic baudrate detection, you may use a wide range of baudrates on your computer. Typically, a stable baudrate for 24MHz crystal is 38400 baud. However, the available baudrates depend on the device you use.
