ajay,give me the example on how to write delay assembly code by using both method,timer and register,thanks

In timers... there are few things to take care of.. first.. amount of time you want delay for, second which timer mode is suitable for that delay.
Timer increment a count every single machine cycle. so if you are using a clock of say.. 12Mhz then.. no. of times timer count is incremented is:
12000000/12 = 1000000
i.e. timer will be incremented 1,000,000 times in a sec.
Lets say you want a delay of 10mS (0.01S)
and you have to calculate the count which is to be loaded in Timer registers (THx and TLx) to find the count to be loaded.. simply multiply the required delay with the count per sec..
i.e. 0.01 x 1,000,000 = 10,000
so we need to count from 0 to 10,000. Maximum count for 16 bit timer is 65536. So if we load 65536-10000 = 55536 in timer registers it till automatically count 10000 times..
So final value is 55536 (DF80H)
so THx = DFH and TLx = 80H
this will give you the required delay...

in case of registers.. you need to add all the time delay required for an instruction to execute and then multiply it by the loop count.. that will give you the time delay..
e.g. the commonly used instructions in register delay are.. djnz Rx,label (2 machine cycles)
loading value using MOV instruction also need 2 machine cycles. RET instuction and Acall instuction both need 2 machine cycles.
Lets say you want a delay of 100uS then.. you are running a clock of 12Mhz, so 1 machine cycle will be of 1uS. you can divide this according to the instructions as...
100 - 2(RET) - 2(lcall) - 2 (load) = 94uS left
94/2 (for DJNZ) = 47 (the count)

so required loop for 100uS delay is..

```delay100uS:
mov R7,#47
wait:
djnz r7,wait
ret```

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.
