I am making project XY recorder using Micro controllerAT89C52.

This my first project .

I don`t know how to decide the value of resistor and capacitor at RESET Pin.

so help me Please.
Wed Feb 04 2009, 02:37 PM

resistor: 8K2, 1/4 watt (8.2K)
capacitor: 10uF,16V

hope you know how the above components are connected to the reset pin.

in case if u dont knw plz refer to the image below.....

the LED is optional....

thanx... for your help.

My controller chip is to run at +5 V ..

so that capacitor charging time should be less than the time required by the controller to scan the reset Pin..

Depending on that basic How can I determine the value of resistor and capacitor?

sir, as far as i know the values are fixed for all applications..... like they are standard values..... their values donot differ from application to application

10uF and 8.2K is generally used, but logic behind this selection is as follows..

Whenpoweris turned on, the circuitholdsthe RSTpin highfor an amountof time that dependson the capacitor valueand the rate at whichit charges.To ensurea valid reset the RSTpin must be held high longenough to allow the oscillator to stsrt up plus two machine cycles.

On power up, VCCshould rise within approximately ten milliseconds.The oscillator start-up time will dependon the oscillatorfrequency.Fora 10MHzcrystal, the start-up timeis typically1rns.For a 1MHzcrystal, the start-up time is typically 10ms.

Hope this answered your query I suggest any new student to read Intel Manual for learning 8051.

i am doing a countdown timer with 8051 for my project, unfortunately our professor had to take a leave of absence before he could teach us most of it.. can someone explain the .asm code of it for me?

hello! newbie here. i am kind of a guy who hates using ready - made existing libraries, so this helped a lot as i was trying to control and write to a character lcd display. however, i can't figure out how to set the cursor position. for example, i want to set it to the 5th column in the first row, so position 5. so according to the table, i am sending 10000101 on the 8 data lines of the lcd (register select pulled low). the cursor does not move there however. and i cant move the cursor left or right too. is it something wrong that i am doing? thank you.
