Interfacing 8051 Microcontroller With 7 Segment Display

Introduction: Interfacing 8051 Microcontroller With 7 Segment Display

About: We are a team of passionate engineers who works on embedded system and IoT. Here through this page you will come to know about embedded system from scratch to the latest technology based controller. We will ...

In this project we are going to tell you about how we can interface 7 segment display with 8051 microcontroller.

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Software Used:

As we are showing proteus simulation so FOR CODING AND SIMULATION YOU REQUIRED:

1 Keil uvision: Their are lots of product from keil. so you will be required c51 compiler. You can download that software from here

2 Proteus Software for simulation: This is the software to show simulation. You will get lot of information to download this software.

If you are doing it in hardware then you would require one software that is flash magic to upload the code in your hardware. Remember flash magic is developed by nxp. So you can not upload all 8051 family microcontroleer through this software. So Philips based controller only you can upload.

Step 2: Components Required:

Here in our demo video we are using proteus simulation but definetly if you are doing it in your hardware you will be required these components for this project:

8051 Development board: So if you have this board it will be better so that you can easily upload the code by yourself.

Seven Segment Display: There are two types of 7 segment display one is Common Anode and other is Common Cathode. In our Proteus simulation we are using Common Anode Display

USB to UART converter: This is 9Pin D type male Connecter For Rs232 O/p Jumper Wires

Step 3: Circuit Diagram

Step 4: Source Code

You can get the source code from our GitHub Link

Step 5: Working Principle and Video

You need to pass the correct hex code to generate numbers in 7 segment display. You can watch the video of this project. Working principle and code I've explained there
