8051 Microcontroller

Maximize Your Opportunity in Embedded System with 8051 Microcontroller

The 8051 Microcontroller is one of the most popular general purpose microcontrollers especially designed for embedded systems. The first version of this single chip microcontroller came in 1980s, and since then it has been being used for embedded systems especially in robotics. It a small chip based on an architecture with support for embedded applications, such as measuring device, security systems, robotics, remoter control applications, scroll message display, etc. Our 8051 Microcontroller training course has been designed to understand the complexity involved in designing of embedded systems.
