Microcontroller Basics Course (3)
In the first two instalments of the course, we worked with assembler, but now it’s time to use a high-level language: BASIC-52.This interpreter for 8052 microcontrollers is well known to all microcontroller users and universally popular. It is located on the program diskette for the Flash Board in the form of a program file in Intel hex format with the name BASIC-52.hex. All you have to do is to use the MicroFlash.exe program to load this file into the microcontroller (Figure 1). The interpreter is 8 kB long and takes around a minute to transfer.
