Learn Embedded Systems with one of the most influential and basic microcontrollers in history, 8051

I believe that anyone can learn and experiment with technology.

All that is needed is the desire to learn and the right guidance.  That’s the reason, this course is focused on both

  • absolute beginners and

  • intermediate developers in embedded systems.

We’re going to study about embedded systems with 8051 microcontrollers in this course.

8051 is by far one of the oldest microcontrollers which is still used today. With over 70+ different manufacturers, 8051 is available in a variety of flavors. What makes it special is the simplicity it offers to the programmers and developers. Being one of the first microcontrollers, the architecture of 8051 is quite simple with very few basic features. And those very basic features make 8051 the winner in terms of simplicity in usage.

In this course, we’ll study 8051 with embedded C programming. We’re going to study about the 8051 microcontrollers with Keil 8051 IDE. Keil Microvision is a very old and very popular IDE used for microcontroller programming.

This is a hands-on driven course where we’ll be writing a lot of codes and trying out its outputs. We’re going to study 8051 microcontroller and its interfacing with a number of peripheral devices like

  • LEDs

  • Switches

  • Relay

  • LCD

  • ADC

  • Temperature Sensor

  • Stepper Motor

  • DC Motor

  • PC Interfacing

  • Device Control

And while doing so, we’ll be doing a number of different experiments to evaluate the skills we have been learning. The course outcome is to enable everyone to be able to use 8051 microcontrollers and start creating projects on it.

Even if you do not know any C programming before, do not worry, there’s a brief introduction to C programming also.

This course comes from a developer

From the past 10 years, I've developed more than 150 projects on 8051 microcontrollers alone. This course doesn't come from a trainer following a set syllabus, this comes from a real developer who's involved in real projects for a better part of his career. So there are many practical considerations mentioned from the time to time in this course.

Barebone Controller Coding

Programming and using a microcontroller is not like using Arduino’s where you just write C code and download it into IC. This is a barebone coding experience where we’re going to learn the insights of 8051 microcontrollers and understand at the core how to write the program for each of its features. This single quality separates the hobbyists and professionals apart. If you’ve once understood how to go into the features of the microcontroller, look into registers and configure them to use, then you’ve understood the holy grail of embedded systems development. We’re going to do exactly this in this course. We’ll be using each feature of 8051 by completely studying the internal registers. Once you’ve understood it, you can take any microcontroller and start writing a program for it just by looking into the datasheet. The input/output pins, timers, counters, serial port, are discussed at length to understand the theory better and then we’ve done some quick experiments with it on the go.


Many of you may or may not have an 8051 development board with you, hence, I’ve included simulation models of every single exercise that we’re going to do in this course. And I’ve also shown the downloading procedure for one of the simplest microcontrollers that I use on daily basis.

Be Assured

Believe it or not, am doing embedded systems development and training from the past 10 years. I’ve developed more than 500 different products / mini projects and trained more than 10000 students from over 65 countries. You can be assured that whatever I’ve included in this course comes not only from books but also from my experiences in developing systems.
