An embedded system is made up of a processor and other components such as memory blocks, sensors, analogue-to-digital converter, and digital-to-analogue converter, and it is designed to perform a dedicated function.

Embedded Systems are found in many applications, such as robotics, electronic appliances, gaming consoles, DVD/MP3 player, mobile phones, and many more.

A microcontroller is an example of an embedded system.

There are many types of microcontrollers in the market and the Intel’s 8051 microcontroller is one of the popular choices.

The 8051 microcontrollers also called the Intel MCS-51 architecture, was designed by Intel back in the 1980s.

This microcontroller is equipped with many built-in resources such as timers, interrupts and supports serial communication.

The 8051 microcontroller comes in many different variants ranging from the low-range, mid-range to the high-end range.



This training will cover in-depth on the concepts and fundamentals of 8051 microcontroller and assemble language programming through a series of lectures and lab sessions.



First, the basic introduction to the microcontrollers and microprocessors and their differences will be covered.

Then, a general overview on the components that make up a microcontroller will be discussed.

This is followed by a detailed coverage on the architecture of the 8051 microcontroller, including the pin assignment, input-output, register banks, general purpose register and special function registers, internal and external memory, memory map and buses.

Then, the training progresses to cover the constructs of the assembly language programming, and the instruction set.

Finally, the course will cover the C language programming.

Suitable examples will be provided to enhance the understanding of the programming language.



In the lab sessions, participants will learn how to write assembly/C code and learn to program the code an 8051 microcontroller.

  • Familiarise with the development in microcontroller technology
  • Familiarise with the Intel 8051 microcontroller
  • Understand the architecture and peripherals of the Intel 8051 microcontroller
  • Understand the input/output, interrupts and timers of the Intel 8051 microcontroller
  • Write assembly code to program the Intel 8051 microcontroller



This course is suitable for undergraduate/postgraduate engineering students, design engineers in electronics/embedded design, and those from academia.
