Hi All,

I'm working with BASCOM-AVR and like it.
But some project I need the HW-features of SiLabs C8051F002.

would love to just take Bascom-8051 with those CPUs.
Is this supported?
Anybody experience with it?

Is this BASCOM 8051 realy active?
I see many more posts for the AVR side.

Thanks,

MJB

Did you ever receive any replies to your question?

I have similar questions about the Silicon Lab C8051F controller Family...

I never received an official answer in the forum.

But to a private mail to Mark (support@mcs..)
I got the answer -
and I really do not understand why he is not making this public,


that he is actually currently working on a

SiLabs C8051xxx version of BASCOM

but he would not give a release date. Sad

Which could mean that when he is busy otherwise it will never be released. ... ???

so I just hope it will not be too late for me,
when the development is done in ASSEMBLER ... Crying or Very sad

Has there been further news about support for SILABS 8051x processors in BASCOM? The analog capabilities of those parts is awesome.

Hi folks,
I'm using BASCOM 8051 (version 2.0.12.0) to program a SiLabs development board with a 8051F005 MCU. It works pretty good. However, I'm currently trying to read, write and clear the 32k of flash memory on the dev board and I'm having trouble doing it.

Can anyone here tell me how to read from or write to external flash? I'm stuck! Sad

A code example would be great.


Thanks,

Mike

Can I use all features of new Silabs C8051F9xx family ?

What about others 8051 vendors ?

What about ARM MCUs ? When ?

I'm not sure about the F9xx family; I haven't seen the specs on it.... A link to the development board I'm using is http://www.silabs.com/tgwWebApp/public/web_content/products/Microcontrollers/en/C8051F005DK.htm.

There is a link on this page to the users guide (12 page PDF). This board has A/D, D/A, DIO, comparators, etc. It does a lot. Price is about $69 US.

Have you been relatively successful using the Silabs parts? I am looking at an application which could make really good use of the 16-24 bit ADC's but I am reluctant to switch from AVR because of what appears to be limited support for Bascom 8051

I've had very good success. Remember, I'm using the dev board. The microprocessor is already attached so I don't have to solder anything. There's a pin header that gives me easy access to the I/O.

I'm not sure about the F9XX line of products, but the F005 has 12 bit ADC's and DAC's.

Concerning "limited" support, I understand what you're saying. But I view it from this position: the developer can answer only so many emails a day. If he is to continue to develop and improve the product, he can't constantly be answering every email he receives. I am constantly asked for help at work with computer-related issues. But this takes time away from what I'm supposed to be doing. It doesn't take very long and the day is over. I've helped everyone else with their problems, but I have achieved nothing on my project. I have to draw the line somewhere.

Some of my BASCOM problems I had to solve by myself. For some I came to the forum to find answers. And some I emailed the developer. I received the developer's responses, but they came several days after I sent the email. What I finally ended up doing was to purchase the paid support. It's approximately 100 euros and is, in my opinion, well worth it. Now I receive developer reply's usually in about 24 hours or so; much faster than before. For me, time is money.

One of my biggest initial challenges was figuring out how to get the Silabs environment to work with the BASCOM environment. Silabs ships with Keil's C compiler for code development. It is fully functional, but this "demo" version is limited to a compiled file size of about 2k (I think; maybe it's 4k). My programming background is VB, not C. So I chose BASCOM. (Besides, the Keil software is very expensive.) I just develop my code in BASCOM and use the Silabs IDE to download my compiled hex file to the microprocessor through the JTAG interface. Once you understand what's going on it's not hard.

Am I happy with my choice? Yes. I don't get too much help from the forum, but I keep checking every now and then. Most people here are like me; they are also looking for answers. Again, paid support is a good option that I would recommend. If you want/need to take this offline you can email me.

Mike, how is it possible to contact anyone from this forum? When I click on the "PM" button or select the "log on for private messages" I'm told in a message that messaging is not allowed. Also, you say to email you, but you have no email address listed in your profile.

I'm not looking to contact you, but is there a way to privately contact people outside of these threads that I've missed?

Later!

kenjj,
you have a good question: How do you contact someone? I've gone into my profile (again) and the area "Always show my e-mail address:" is selected "Yes" but it does not show up on the main board or replies. I don't know why. Also, you're right about the PM and Profile issues (again, I don't know why).

If you need to contact me my email address is "crumpms@auburn.edu"



Mike Very Happy

This is old, wonder if any more support for Silabs MCU's came out with Bascom 8051.

I am looking at a C8051F930 project at the moment and after a few great years of Bascom AVR I am not wanting to change now.

Any replies would be great.

Andy
