8051 IDE is a simple 8051 microcontroller emulator for the 8051 series of microcontrollers, like 8052, 8031, 8751, 8752, etc. The only difference between the different versions is the internal Memory type (ROM, EPROM, etc.) and data RAM size. 8051 is the most popular microcontroller in use.

The program is very simple to use and is a good one for those beginning to do 16-bit microcontroller programming. It has all the features to edit and run an assembly language program. The inbuilt assembler can easily assemble the ASM code. You only need to type the program code into the editor and click “Assemble”.

A real-time view of all memory areas, like the internal and external memory, including SFRs and Control Registry, is available through different windows. Also, the ports (which are actually accessed through specific SFR memory units) can be monitored while running the program. All the debug functions, like step by step operation, break points, stop to and from subroutines, etc., are included as well.

This program is only recommended for beginners. If you are into advanced programming of other components, embedded systems, etc., you will need a more powerful program, like Keil RealView, Vissim, Proteus, etc.
