Build your own a programmer for writing intel-HEX file to the 89C51, 89C52 and 89C55, PCB file included, Window version UPLOADER EZ3, EZ3.1, modified source code with sdcc. updated firmware for 89S51 and 89S52!


Isp programmer for 8051 circuit breakersForIf you need more code spacefor your application, particularly for developing 89Cxx projects with Clanguage, the Easy-Downloader V2.0 is the answer. It's suitable and cheapwhich anyone can build easily. This version is capable of writing intel-HEXfile to a 89C51(4kB), 89C52(8kB) and 89C55(20kB). After compiling the sourcefile in Assembly or C then download the hex file to the chip directly byusing A:>ez2 myfirst(.hex), say.
  1. ISP Programming FRC Socket; Device Support89S51,89S,89S20 & AVR SERIES ALSO; Compatible with 8051 Development Board; NOTE: While Using 8051 ISP programmer Please remove capacitor 10mfd in reset circuit as reset Pin is used for programming After Reset will be applied from programmer itsellf Package Contents.
  2. About the programmer This simple microcontroller programmer can progam most of the 89 like Atmel's AT89S51, AT89S52, AT89S53, AT89S8252, AT89S8253 including the Atmel AVR series of microcontroller, it does not support 89C series. It simply consists of an ATMega8 and a couple of passive components.
  3. Compatible with 8051 Development Board NOTE: While Using 8051 ISP programmer Please remove capacitor 10mfd in reset circuit as reset Pin is used for programming After Reset will be applied from programmer itsellf.
  4. An ISP programmer for 8051 family, without a microcontroller An ultra-simple bit of hardware to program the flash memory in AT89S/4051. Now you can program the firmware for an ISP programmer built with one of these microcontrollers, without needing an ISP programmer!

In Serial programming single bit is transferred at a time using ISP protocol therefore Serial programmers also called ISP programmers. The hardware needed is very simple and small. There is no need to take out the target microcontroller from the circuit. ISP programming requires 6 pin of the target microcontroller (including Vcc and GND).


Figure 1 shows the circuit diagramof Easy-Downloader V2.0. The 89C51 with ez52.hex receives a 9600 baud serialdata from PC and generates the appropriated signal applying to the ZIFsocket. P0 is for bi-directional data transferring. P1 provides A0-A7,P2.0-P2.6 for A8-A14. Look at A14, our software uses P2.6, while ATMELuses P3.0 instead. Programming mode selection is done by P3.4 to P3.7.See in ez52.c for details. The programming voltage shown a bit differentfrom version 1.1, Vpp pin needs only +5V and +12V and simply activatedby P3.3. The clock input pin X1 of the ZIF socket is derived from X2 withoutbuffering. I have tested, no problem so far.Isp programmer for 8051 circuit breaker

Constructing the Board

The prototype board may be builtusing universal PCB with point-to-point soldering. If you want to makea PCB, get the ez2.pcb,open with Protel version 2.73. The components placement is shown in Figure2.
For those who can make thePCB with PDF file, get this file ez2pcb.pdf

ez52.hexis the hex file firmware needed for 89C51. Use a given programmer or availableEasy-Downloader write the hex file into the 89C51. An alternative is touse 89S8252 chip, build a simple SPIdownloader through LPT port. The preprogrammed 89S8252 with ez52.hexcan be used in place of 89C51.

ez52.cis the source program written in C language for further modification. Torecompile, it needs Micro-C for 8051 compiler from DunfieldDevelopment System.

Isp Programmer For 8051 Circuit Breaker is the dos version program that runs on PC sending the hex code to the Easy-Downloader board.
Note: EZ2 dos version can use only with old PC, 386 or 486 machine.

Example of using ez2 is shownin Figure 3.

Figure4: Example of Using EZ3 and EZ3.1
DownloadEZUploader V3.0 for Window As seen in the Easy-DownloaderV1.1, the EZ UPLOADER V3.0 can also be used with Easy V2.0. Nowfor the 89C51, 89C52 and 89C55, there is a signature byte, thus no longerneed to select memory size. The EZ will recognize how big the code memoryis. Just click Send Hexfile, everything will done automatically.

DownloadEZUploader V3.1 for Window This is beta test EZ3.1 Uploader,with additional READ and SAVE AS features. The HEX code resided in thechips can be read and save as an Intel HEX file.

    • Nov 1, 2004 beta version firmware for 89S51, 89S52 new series flash MCU. The new firmware enables Easy downloader V2.0 to program both 89Cxx and 89Sxx. The signature checking was removed, user must know the size of code for a given chip, e.g. 89x51 has 4096 bytes and 89x52 8192 bytes!

      Since the new S series needs more bit for mode setting. So you have to move signal from pin 14 to pin 13 as shown above.

      Connecting the Easy-Downloader V2.0 to a PC with USB port:
      Newer PC, or laptop computer may not provides the COM port, instead it has the USB port as a standard serial port. I found a cheap adapter, the FTDI232 USB-COM port converter. The adapter uses FT232RL chip. The adapter provides 6-pins connector. To interface it to the Easy-downloader, we needs only three pins, i.e. TXD, RXD, and GND. The chip itself powered by +5V from USB port.

    As shown in above photo, we remove the DS275, RS232 transceiver, and provide the 6-pin SIP socket to connect the FTDI232 serial adapter.

    Connecting to the master chip serial port is simple.TXD

    (pin 11 of the 8051) ------------------ RX(pin 5)

    RXD (pin 10 of the 8051)-------------------TX(pin 4)

    GND( pin 20 of the 8051)------------------GND (pin 1)

    When connecting the adapter to the USB port, the Windows will find the driver automatically. We can install the driver called VCP (Virtual COM port) manually. The VCP driver for FTDI chip can get from the FTDI directly. The PC will recognize the connected USB port as the COM port.
    I'm thinking to add the FTDI chip to the Easy-downloader finally. Have a look the new Easy-downloader with USB interface!
