The BIG8051 is a full-featured development system for Silicon Labs C8051Fxxx microcontrollers. It has several on-board modules that help you to create your prototype device easily. A C8051F040 microcontroller is included on a plug-in module.
The system comes with the Silicon Labs USB Debug Adapter for programming/debugging of the MCU. Note that the included 8051Flash programming software does not support the Silicon Labs MCU. Download the Silicon Labs Simplicity Studio or IDE from the links provided below.
The board has a variety of on-board modules, including Serial Ethernet, Serial Flash, Serial RAM, Serial EEPROM, MMC/SD card, CAN, USB-UART, two RS232 connectors, and more. All microcontroller pins are available through IDC10 port connectors, so you can easily attach other peripherals to your board.
Note: The picture shows two optional displays (with blue backgrounds) and an optional RF module (red PCB) connected to the board for illustration purposes. See the Optional Recommended Products list at the bottom of this page to add these to your order.
