8051 friendly board not getting detected

Link to this post 18 Sep 13

I am using Flash magic software to configure the 8051 friendly board. I have entered all the details correctly ( com port number, device number , baud rate etc). When i try and click on "read device signature" the board does not respond even after giving reset to the board. can you please help resolve this problem.

Have you removed the "Use DTR to Control RST" check mark.
if not do the settings as per manual.

You didn't mentioned the IC name so i assumed it as P89V51RD2 philips ic.
Turn off the DIP switches ie put the switch into EXE mode.

Then try once again. Check the serial cable(null modem cable or straight cable)
Press and Hold the reset button, then press the start button in flash magic

This may solve your problem
