I'm using the 7805CT circuit to power my 89CX051 MCU project, but I wish to build the "OverVoltage" circuit that is typically avalable in commercial/industrial products. I know that that 89CX051 MCU can take on up to 6 VDC, but I wish to have a circuit that cuts off at 5.5 VDC.

Case: A cold solder joint in a 7805CT circuit caused High Voltage (11 VDC) to MCU, when supply voltage was 13.5 VDC. The MCU heated up, but still working as a MCU. (I haven't tried erasing & reprogramming it, yet.)

I want this circuit to prevent high voltage from entering the MCU circuit areas, optionally providing a necessary alarm-type notification.

Any ideas?

hi,

jus monitor the line current using a shunt resister and connect to comparator with reference and connect the o/p to buzzer

voltage is not the current makes the damages while shorts in mcu

So far, I have two (2) dead 89C2051 MCUs caused by over-voltage. I use thermal stickers on my MCU ICs. I've seen both MCU ICs experience enlargening black dots, from heating up too hot. One of them decided to heat up while I was on the toilet... Voltage, measured with DMM, went from 5.00 VDC to 11.67 VDC from a cold-solder joint that heated up nearby the 7805. By the time I cut the power, it was already too late. I have repaired my solder joints since then, but I want to be safe than sorry.

i recommend using a zeiner on output side to prevent overvoltage, 7805 is unreliable sometimes, i lost one IC coz of same reason.. or maybe 2.

Couldn't you just say you were "away"

Seriously.. the risk of a regulator failing high is so low that it is not worth adding the sort of
backup you would need.

Just make sure you solder the ground pin properly and check for shorted tracks.

Usually, "away" would signify that I can simply stop what I'm doing to respond to an "alarm" condition... For instance, smoke alarm while eating a meal... I can simply get up and run to it...

My main power supply delivers 13.5 VDC 3 Amps... The 7805 regulator does warm up, but not enough to raise any alarms. But, when V-out went above 9VDC, the regulator gets warmer. When V-out goes to over 11VDC, the regulator gets extremely hot.

I have an idea of building a circuit that operates a "cutoff relay" if or when V-out equals 6VDC+. This particular circuit will still operate while the "cutoff relay" prevents OverVoltage from reaching Vcc of the MCU circuits.

In my past, I remember industrial products that have an overvoltage sensor, and in one case, I had to test the overvoltage sensor at quality control level.

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?

I am doing a project for my schools wireless security system with cameras,sensors and spot lights using 8051 micro controller, could you help me out with the design and its source code.

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.
