Configuring Keil uVision IDE for the MAX7651


This article gives a step-by-step procedure for starting a project and

configuring the Keil uVision IDE software for the MAX7651 EVKIT. It is the

second of a three-part application example for writing, compiling and

downloading a simple program to the MAX7651 EVKIT target board.

1. Download and install the Keil DK-51 demo software at unless it was

installed previously as a step in Performing ADC conversions using the MAX7651. Note:

Please verify that you are using version 7.08 or later. The procedure for the software

installation is outlined in the MAX7651 Quick Start Manual.

2. Open Keil uVision 2 by clicking on the Keil icon on your desktop or by opening the

software in the Windows START menu.

3. Open a new project in the Keil uVision IDE Software

4. Select a new folder and give the project a name.

5. Select MAX7651 target in the database under Maxim -> MAX7651. Click OK.

6. Click Yes, to "Copy Standard 8051 Startup Code to Project Folder and Add File to


7. Right Click on Target 1 -> Source Group 1 and Add files to Source Group 1.

8. Add the source files. See: Performing ADC conversions using the MAX7651.

9. Set Target Options. Click on the icon to the left of Target drop down box. Click on the

Target Tab. Configure the Target for an 11.0592MHz crystal, select Use On-Chip ROM

(0x0-0x3FFF), specify Off-chip Code Memory to Start at 0x4000 with a size of 0x8000 and

Off-Chip Xdata memory to Start at 0x0 with a Size of 0x8000.

10. Set output options. Click on Create HEX file.

11. Set Debug Options. Check the Use Simulator option.

12. Click OK to accept option changes.

13. In the Project Menu, Select Rebuild all Target Files. The Program should compile.

14. Make sure there are no errors. The Program is ready to be loaded to the MAX7651 Target

Board. See Downloading a Program to Flash Using the MAX7651 EVKIT Serial


15. If you do not have the MAX7651EVKIT and/or wish to run the program using the Keil

uVision simulator, click on the Debug Menu, and Start the debug Session. Click OK for

the warning of evaluation version. Select View Menu and click on Serial Window #1.

Select the Debug Menu and click on Go. The program will execute and perform Analog to

Digital conversions on all 8 channels.
