4. Getting Started
The necessary software to download, debug and communicate with the target microcontroller must be downloaded communicate with the target microcontroller:
Silicon Laboratories Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
Keil Demonstration Tools
ToolStick Terminal application
The Keil Demo Toolset includes a compiler, assembler, and linker. See Section 5.2.2. Keil Demonstration C51 C
Compiler for more details about the demo tools. ToolStick Terminal communicates with the target microcontroller's
UART through the ToolStick Base Adapter. It can also read/write the two GPIO pins available on the ToolStick Base
Configuration Wizard 2
Keil uVision2 and uVision3 Drivers
The software described above is provided in several download packages. The ToolStick download package includes example code, documentation, including users guides and data sheets, and the ToolStick Terminal application. The IDE, Keil Demonstration Tools, Configuration Wizard 2, and the Keil Vision Drivers are available as separate downloads. After downloading and installing these packages, see the following sections for information.
5. Software Overview
5.1. Silicon Laboratories IDE
The Silicon Laboratories IDE integrates a source code editor, source-level debugger, and an in-system Flash programmer. See Section 6. ToolStick C8051F321 Daughter Card Features Demo for detailed information on how to use the IDE. The Keil Demonstration Toolset includes a compiler, linker, and assembler and easily integrates into the IDE. The use of third-party compilers and assemblers is also supported.
5.1.1. IDE System Requirements
The Silicon Laboratories IDE requirements:
Pentium-class host PC running Microsoft Windows 2000 or newer.
One available USB port.
5.1.2. 3rd Party Toolsets
The Silicon Laboratories IDE has native support for many 8051 compilers. The full list of natively supported tools is:
