All you need to start with Atmel AT89 microcontrollers

This is simple development board for Atmel AT89 series of microcontrollers that uses ISP programmability I found in sixca.com. This is good start for learning with MCS-51 base projects.


This board supports Atmel microcontroller series like AT89S51, AT89S52, AT89S53, AT89S8252 with DIP40 pin packages. The board uses ISP programming method through parallel port adapter. It has all I/O connectors, single sided PCB. It has on board voltage regulator 7805.


Programming of this microcontroller never been so easy. Just use simple download cable:


For programming use ISP-3v0 software included in packed project archive.


To program chip:

    1. Connect ATMEL ISP cable to PC parallel port and power supply.
    2. Run ISP3.0 for Windows95/98/ME use ISP-3v0.exe and WindowsXP/2000/NT use ISP-XP.bat .
    3. Select your devices from drop down list menu.
    4. Click “Open file” to open hex file.
    5. Click “Write” to program device.

Board in use

Download example code to blink led on port2 (Compile with KEIL C51).
