I have a question: I need to program my ADUC836, and i search an open source IDE to program this MCU.
Are you aware of some free IDE?
If you look up on the web Google is finding in the meanwhile some interesting 8051 tools.
Unfortunately I haven't used and/or adapted those for our ADuC8xx parts.
Basic development should be possible with this tool chains, as the ADuC8xx are fully compliant to the core 8052.
Here two interesting links I may try also.
For the first one source-code is available, so it may be possible to adapt it to our parts easily.
MCU 8051 IDE | SourceForge.net
or Eclipse based :
Oracle Technology Network for Java Developers | Oracle Technology Network | Oracle
eclipseSDCC - Browse Files at SourceForge.net
SDCC - Small Device C Compiler
As I have seen from a quick check with the first one - it generates Intel-Hex-Files.
These you can download to the ADuC8xx with our WSD.
Development Tools | Software Configurable Products | ADUC836 | Analog Microcontrollers | Processors and DSP | Analog Dev…
I tried with eclipse but it doesn't works.....i have problem with the SDCC compiler
Now i have tried to install MCU 8051 IDE, that seems a good tools, based always on SDCC compiler...at this moment i have problem always with the compiler......
At last i download and install MIDE-51, the second link.....it's possibile with this two last IDE (if i solve the problems that i have) create the .exe file to download inside the MCU?
I have made some more testing with the 1st tool-chain
MCU 8051 IDE
together with our WSD
on a ADuC831 Evaluation-Board - just a simple LED-Blink.
This works perfect w/o any problem.
But I think also the other two options may work this way.
For real debugging some effort is required.
Also for the analog peripherals there is no support on the simulator, but with the correct Include-Files this tool-chains can be used to develop applications for our ADuC8xx parts.
As explained in the MCU 8051 IDE Manual, for multiple files you need to use a makefile - see page 36
