The RIM is our newest industrial controller released as a COTS Unit.
It's small size and full functionality make it ideal for
applications with limited room. The RIM unit can be plugged into a
standard 40 pin dip socket. The RIM comes with up to 128K RAM and
128K FLASH ROM. It has a standard RS-232 serial port and 32 I/O
The RIM51 is a complete
embedded controller in a 40-pin DIP format.
A High-speed 8052 microcontroller
Up to 128K of FLASH code memory
Up to 128K of RAM
An RS-232 serial port
Power-on reset circuitry
12 bits of 8051-type input/output ports
20 bits of 3.3 Volt bi-directional input/output ports (5-Volt tolerant)
Applications, Reduces Cost
The module significantly reduces the applications hardware.
Since all the necessary controller functions are encapsulated in the
module, the typical applications hardware consists of a low-cost board with
customized sensors and actuators with a 40-pin DIP socket to accommodate the
The RIM51 module is programmed through its serial port.
It requires only four lines (+5Volts, Ground, TxD, RxD) to communicate
with a PC. The 8051 code may be developed using Rigelís IDE Reads51,
or any other third party compiler/assembler.
The generated HEX code is downloaded to the RIM51 by the standard
Reads51 download command. A
separate programming utility is also available for OEM applications.
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,

latest Reads51, V4.20.
which generates more streamlined code.
Ability to customize the settings
to support various memory maps.
C code may now be run without any
external memory to support Rigelís new line of single-chip 8051boards and
