C8051F50x Automotive and Industrial MCU Development Kit
The easiest way to begin development with the C8051F50x automotive and industrial microcontroller family and the C8051F51x family is with the fully functional “out-of-the-box” C8051F500DK development kit.
A unique aspect of this development board is that it has two C8051F500 devices on a single board. This enables the designer to develop a fully functioning LIN 2.0 master/slave network with a single piece of hardware. Furthermore, the external connector and 12 V regulator allows the designer to interface to any existing LIN network for maximum design and test flexibility.
A host PC is required to run the development kit software and communicate with the debug adapter. The PC must meet the following system requirements:
- Windows® 2000 or later
- One USB port
Silicon Labs' development kits include advanced debug features enabling the user to fully develop and integrate hardware and software design. Since the MCU has built in debug capabilities, it can be installed into the end application. This development system is not encumbered with sockets, target cables or "ICE Chips." The development kit supports the following debug features:
- Run, halt and single-step
- Set hardware breakpoints
- Inspect/Modify memory and registers
- Download program memory
