Install Keil to Program 8051 Microcontroller

This post is about how to install keil to program 8051 Microcontroller. As we know to do anything with microcontrollers, we must have to program them first. So It’s very important to understand how to load software or program into the microcontroller while developing any Embedded Application. This process often called as ‘Loading a firmware’. So before loading any program into the microcontroller we must have to write a code or program either in assembly, C or C++. And then compile that program using compiler to generate hex file which we’ll burn/load into microcontroller.

There are several software’s available to compile program and also to load HEX file into 8051. Here we’ll use Keil MicroVision an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), which integrate a text editor to write programs, a compiler which convert your source code to hex file. Later on we’ll use Flash Magic utility to load HEX file onto 8051 Microcontroller.
