Atmel AVR & AT89S52 Tutorial Kit US$140.00

Atmel AVR & AT89S52 Tutorial Kit

The PCAM (Practical Course for Atmel Microcontrollers) is designed for beginners. It includes development hardware with on-board interfaces and an in-system programmer, which can be used to follow the text and video tutorials listed below for learning the technology.

It supports Atmel's 89S52 controller (8051 architecture) and ATmega8 + ATmega32 (AVR architecture). These controllers can be interfaced with the following on-board circuits:

  • LEDs
  • Seven-segment displays
  • 2-line by 16-character LCD
  • Stepper motor driver (motor not included)
  • 8-bit ADC (analog-to-digital converter)
  • RS232
  • Temperature sensor
  • IR (Infrared) transmitter
  • IR (Infrared) receiver
  • RC5 IR receiver
  • Serial EEPROM
  • Switches
  • 4x4 matrix keypad
  • DC motor driver
  • I2C-based real-time clock
  • I2C-based EEPROM
You can add additional interface circuits externally.

Note: This kit ships with a 40-pin AT89S52 microcontroller included; it does not include any AVR microcontrollers. If you want to use this kit to learn AVR programming, you can order an optional ATmega16 microcontroller from the add-on option section at the bottom of this page. The board can also be used with a P89V51RD2 microcontroller.

The links below contain development software and audio-visual tutorials that explain the concepts of developing software in Embedded C for AVR microcontrollers, and Assembly code development for 8051 microcontrollers. Sample source code in assembly language for 8051 (89S52) and C language samples for AVRs also are provided in the tutorials.

The kit comes with a HandyProgUSB in-system programmer for 89S51, 89S52 & AVR. This programmer works with Windows 98, XP, 2000, Vista & Windows 7 operating systems.

AVR & 8051 Tutorial Kit Contents

  • EEDT4.0 Hardware board, assembled, tested and mounted with all components (except AVR microcontrollers)
  • HandyProgUSB ISP for 89S51, 89S52 & AVR microcontrollers
  • 20 single-pin connectors (female to female)
  • RC5 remote
A 9-12V DC power supply is required. You can add one to your order using the options below.

PCAM+ 8051 Tutorials and Source Codes

AVR Tutorial Videos

This training course is a series of online videos. Follow the links below to view each chapter. Remember that the PCAM+ does not come with an AVR microcontroller; you will have to install one. The tutorials refer to the ATmega32 specifically. Some of the interfaces covered are not on the PCAM+ hardware; they are present on the AVR-LiP board which is part of the EC-AVR-USB training kit. That kit is recommended if you are interested specifically in learning the AVR architecture.
