I have acquired a SILICON LABS Sensor Less BLDC Motor Reference Design Board

SENSOR LESS-BLDC-MOTOR-RD:
https://www.silabs.com/products/...

But, as much a beginner and outwards rushing no experience in how to upload / download codes to microprocessor. (C8051F310).

How do the codes for micro-processor?
Is that something you want to describe to me?

Sincerely,
Monie

Well Monie, as i see it s not the good place to plut a topic about a NON-AVR product , this is a SILICON LABS micro controller, i don t know much about that , but even if someone else know that , i don t think that he s allowed to answer that on AVR freaks .

Sorry

Use "USB debug adapter" from kit

This is a silicon labs 8051 processor... those were made obsolete about a decade ago when all the really tuned in engineers started using atmel avr microcontrollers.
As far as the mystical codes go, you have your c source code, which is provided with the kit, which gets run thru the c compiler which belches forth its output of object code, which gets further processed to produce the hex code that gets eaten by the computer. Ever heard of Tommy James and the Shondells?

The Si Labs 8051s are faster than AVRs - pipelined single-cycle operation at 100MHz, giving 100 MIPS!

They even have a 16x16 MAC for DSP operations.

Their new low-voltage chip operates from as little as 0.9V.

More 8051s are in use than AVRs. They need so little silicon that they are often embedded in other chips, like wireless transceivers and ADCs.

Yeah, yeah, but since he seemed to be a beginner, I figured if I steered him to AVRs, the stock would go up and I could retire sooner.

The AVR is a lot easier to use, especially for a beginner, of course.
