THEME - Hard & Soft 1995

The minimal development system for one of the microcontrollers PCB 80C552, SAB 80535, I80C196, SAB8052, PIC16C84, ST6265, 8748/49 and a test application.

1. The development system

The system will have the following features:
 

  • the host computer will be an IBM-PC compatible;
  • it has a RAM loaded through PC parallel interface by the microcontroller with a pre-loaded embeded in its PROM.

The development system functions will be accessible from the PC keyboard:

  • program loading;
  • command for running the programs;
  • step by step execution of the programs loaded into the microcontroller RAM and breakpoints facility;
  • when the program is stoped, the state of the microcontroller will be displayed;
  • display and modification of registers and memory zone.

Note: The microcontroller's PROM will contain a simple pre-loader. The other software components of the development system will be loaded into the RAM.


2. Test application

The implementation on a microcontroller of a signal generator. The signals will be analogical and periodic, with their forms specified by a PC program.
This program will transmit the following information to the microcontroller:

  • the sample period chosen by the user from a set established by the designer;
  • the number of points;

The list of values for each point, describing a period signal continuously generated by the microcontroller, without a further connection to the PC.
The user may specify the forms and the parameters of the signal by:

  • a value table, read from the keyboard or from a file (ASCII format, a value per line, in convertor unities);
  • a trigonometrical or polynomial function, chosen by the user from a menu;
  • a function graphically edited by the mouse.
