The 8051-Ready Board is a good solution for fast and simple development of DIP20, DIP40 and PLCC44 8051 microcontroller applications using the Atmel AT89 family. It includes a 2×5-pin ICSP header for connecting the mikroProg-8051 or 8051prog2 in-system programmer.
There also are four IDC10 headers provided on the board which are linked to the MCU pins. These headers enable you to connect external devices to the board, so you can assemble a functional working environment that suits your needs.
This board also contains a USB-to-UART serial interface via an FT232R chip which simplifies USB-to-serial designs and reduces external component count by fully integrating an external EEPROM, USB termination resistors and an integrated clock circuit which requires no external crystal.
The board has a 20-pin DIP socket, a 40-pin DIP socket, and a 44-pin PLCC socket. Never install more than one chip at a time! A microcontroller is not included. The board supports the Atmel AT89 family only.
Power to the board must be provided via screw terminals. Input can be 8-16V AC or DC. In the options below you can find a female barrel jack adapter that will let you use one of the power supplies also listed below. You'll just have to run wires between the adapter and the the board.
There are two 5×20-pin through-hole prototyping areas as well, plus 20-pin VCC and GND rows, so you can experiment with your own circuit.
Jumpers are on the board to enable pull-up resistors and the USB-UART communication.
The board also has a reset button.
Expansion Modules There are more than 170 add-on boards you can find in the mikroElektronika Accessory Boards category and its subcategories. One of the subcategories contains accessory boards that may plug directly into IDC10 headers on this board.
