The R-31JP accepts 8051 microcontrollers in the
40-pin DIP format including the 80C31, 80C32, 80C51, 80C52, 8052AH with Basic,
83C51, 87C51, DS5000, DS80C320 and the SAB C50x series. Normal operating speed
is 11.0592MHz, but other speeds are available to accommodate faster
processors. The R-31JP has a large prototyping area to the board for
adding your own circuits.
The system bus is available on two headers
where the address and data lines of the processor are de-multiplexed. The
system bus facilitates interfacing the R-31JP to external memory-mapped input
/ output devices. The user may decode the address along with the XIOSEL#, RD#,
and WR# signals to select memory-mapped peripherals.
The R31JP board comes standard with an 8052
which contains an 8K ROM with interpreted BASIC. The BASIC interpreter is
compiled from Intel's MCS-51 BASIC (version 1.1) source code, which has been
released to the public domain as a freeware program. Please note that Intel no
longer supports or warrants this interpreter. Rigel Corporation includes
the BASIC interpreter purely as a convenience to its customers. Note that if
the R31JP contain an EEPROM version of the 8052, you may erase the BASIC
interpreter and reprogram the CPU with your own code. Also, inserting the EA#
jumper disables internal code memory so that the 8052 may be used without the
Reads51 is an integrated applications software
development system, which runs on an IBM PC or compatible host. Reads51 allows
writing, compiling, assembling, debugging, downloading, and running
applications software in the MCS-51 language. Reads51 contains a C compiler,
relative assembler, linker/locator, editor, chip simulator, assembly
language debugger, and host-to-board communications in a user-friendly,
is a 32-bit Windows (TM) application, which combines an editor
and a terminal emulator. The editor comprises the main window, allowing
multiple source files to be viewed and edited. The terminal emulator, referred
to as the TTY (teletype) is associated with dockable child window, referred to
as the TTY window. The RbHost editor has BASIC language syntax
highlighting. It facilitates writing BASIC programs and downloading them to
Rigel's embedded control boards. The BASIC interpreter may be in internal ROM,
external ROM, or in RAM.
