89LPCxx USB Programming
Back in November 2003 you could already read about a small development system for the (then) new series of controllers from the 8051-compatible 89LPC9xx-family. A nice feature of the current 89LPC9xx-series is that these chips can remain in the circuit while (re-)programming. All that’s required for this programming is an RS232 port. But because many modern computers do not have an RS232 connection any more, we propose here a USB version. For this we use a well-known USB/RS232-converter chip, the FT232R.
