3.1. Software Installation
The included CD-ROM contains the Silicon Laboratories Integrated Development Environment (IDE), Keil software
8051 tools, and additional documentation. Insert the CD-ROM into your PC’s CD-ROM drive. An installer will
automatically launch, allowing you to install the IDE software or read documentation by clicking buttons on the
Installation Panel. If the installer does not automatically start when you insert the CD-ROM, run autorun.exe found
in the root directory of the CD-ROM. Refer to the ReleaseNotes.txt file on the CD-ROM for the latest information
regarding known problems and restrictions. After installing the software, see the following sections for information
regarding the software and running one of the demo applications.
3.2. CP210x USB to UART VCP Driver Installation
The C8051F580 Target Board includes a Silicon Laboratories CP2102 USB-to-UART Bridge Controller. Device
drivers for the CP2102 need to be installed before PC software such as HyperTerminal can communicate with the
target board over the USB connection. If the "Install CP210x Drivers" option is selected during installation, a driver
“unpacker” utility will launch.
1. Follow the steps to copy the driver files to the desired location. The default directory is C:\SiLabs\MCU\CP210x.
2. The final window will give an option to install the driver on the target system. Select the “Launch the CP210x VCP Driver
Installer” option if you are ready to install the driver.
3. If selected, the driver installer will now launch, providing an option to specify the driver installation location. After pressing
the “Install” button, the installer will search your system for copies of previously installed CP210x Virtual COM Port drivers. It
will let you know when your system is up to date. The driver files included in this installation have been certified by Microsoft.
4. If the “Launch the CP210x VCP Driver Installer” option was not selected in step 3, the installer can be found in the location
specified in step 2, by default C:\SiLabs\MCU\CP210x\Windows_2K_XP_S2K3_Vista. At this location, run
CP210xVCPInstaller.exe.
5. To complete the installation process, connect the included USB cable between the host computer and the USB connector
(P5) on the C8051F580 Target Board. Windows will automatically finish the driver installation. Information windows will pop
up from the taskbar to show the installation progress.
6. If needed, the driver files can be uninstalled by selecting “Silicon Laboratories CP210x USB to UART Bridge Driver
Removal” option in the “Add or Remove Programs” window.

6. Using the Keil Software 8051 Tools with the Silicon Laboratories IDE
To perform source-level debugging with the IDE, you must configure the Keil 8051 tools to generate an absolute
object file in the OMF-51 format with object extensions and debug records enabled. You may build the OMF-51
absolute object file by calling the Keil 8051 tools at the command line (e.g., batch file or make file) or by using the
project manager built into the IDE. The default configuration when using the Silicon Laboratories IDE project
manager enables object extension and debug record generation. Refer to Application Note "AN104: Integrating Keil
8051 Tools into the Silicon Labs IDE" in the “SiLabs\MCU\Documentation\ApplicationNotes” directory for additional
information on using the Keil 8051 tools with the Silicon Laboratories IDE.
To build an absolute object file using the Silicon Laboratories IDE project manager, you must first create a project.
A project consists of a set of files, IDE configuration, debug views, and a target build configuration (list of files and
tool configurations used as input to the assembler, compiler, and linker when building an output object file).
The following sections illustrate the steps necessary to manually create a project with one or more source files,
build a program, and download the program to the target in preparation for debugging. (The IDE will automatically
create a single-file project using the currently open and active source file if you select Build/Make Project before a
project is defined.)
6.1. Creating a New Project
1. Select ProjectNew Project to open a new project and reset all configuration settings to default.
2. Select FileNew File to open an editor window. Create your source file(s) and save the file(s) with a
recognized extension, such as .c, .h, or .asm, to enable color syntax highlighting.
3. Right-click on “New Project” in the Project Window. Select Add files to project. Select files in the file
browser and click Open. Continue adding files until all project files have been added.
4. For each of the files in the Project Window that you want assembled, compiled, and linked into the target
build, right-click on the file name and select Add file to build. Each file will be assembled or compiled as
appropriate (based on file extension) and linked into the build of the absolute object file.
Note: If a project contains a large number of files, the “Group” feature of the IDE can be used to organize
the files. Right-click on “New Project” in the Project Window. Select Add groups to project. Add predefined groups or add customized groups. Right-click on the group name and choose Add file to group.
Select files to be added. Continue adding files until all project files have been added.

C8051F580DK
6.2. Building and Downloading the Program for Debugging
1. Once all source files have been added to the target build, build the project by clicking on the Build/Make
Project button in the toolbar or selecting ProjectBuild/Make Project from the menu.
Note: After the project has been built the first time, the Build/Make Project command will only build the
files that have been changed since the previous build. To rebuild all files and project dependencies, click
on the Rebuild All button in the toolbar or select ProjectRebuild All from the menu.
2. Before connecting to the target device, several connection options may need to be set. Open the
Connection Options window by selecting OptionsConnection Options... in the IDE menu. First, select
the appropriate adapter in the “Serial Adapter” section. Next, the correct “Debug Interface” must be selected.
C8051F58x/59x family devices use the Silicon Labs 2-wire (C2) debug interface. Once all the selections are
made, click the OK button to close the window.
3. Click the Connect button in the toolbar or select DebugConnect from the menu to connect to the device.
4. Download the project to the target by clicking the Download Code button in the toolbar.
Note: To enable automatic downloading if the program build is successful, select Enable automatic
connect/download after build in the ProjectTarget Build Configuration dialog. If errors occur during
the build process, the IDE will not attempt the download.
5. Save the project when finished with the debug session to preserve the current target build configuration,
editor settings, and the location of all open debug views. To save the project, select ProjectSave Project As... from the menu. Create a new name for the project and click on Save.
7. Example Source Code
Example source code and register definition files are provided in the “SiLabs\MCU\Examples\C8051F58x_59x\”
directory during IDE installation. These files may be used as a template for code development. Example
applications include a blinking LED example which configures the green LED on the target board to blink at a fixed
rate.
7.1. Register Definition Files
Register definition files C8051F580.inc and C8051F580_defs.h define all SFR registers and bit-addressable
control/status bits. A macro definition header file compiler_defs.h is also included, and is required to be able to use
the C8051F580_defs.h header file with various tool chains. These files are installed into the
“SiLabs\MCU\Examples\C8051F58x_59x\Header_Files\” directory during IDE installation by default. The register
and bit names are identical to those used in the C8051F58x/59x data sheet. These register definition files are also
installed in the default search path used by the Keil Software 8051 tools. Therefore, when using the Keil 8051 tools
included with the development kit (A51, C51), it is not necessary to copy a register definition file to each project’s
file directory.
7.2. Blinking LED Example
The example source files F580_Blinky.asm and F580_Blinky.c installed in the default directory
“SiLabs\MCU\Examples\C8051F58x_59x\Blinky” show examples of several basic C8051F580 functions. These
include disabling the watchdog timer (WDT), configuring the Port I/O crossbar, configuring a timer for an interrupt
routine, initializing the system clock, and configuring a GPIO port pin. When compiled/assembled and linked, this
program flashes the green LED on the C8051F580 Target Board about five times a second using the interrupt
handler with a C8051F580 timer.

8.2. Target Board Power Options and Current Measurement (J7, J24, J31, P4)
The C8051F580 Target Board supports three power options:
1. 12V dc power using the ac to dc power adapter (P4)
2. 5V dc USB VBUS power from PC via the USB Debug Adapter (DEBUG_A)
3. 12V dc power from the LIN external header (TB1)
The two 12V power sources are ORed together using reverse-biased diodes (Z1 and Z2). The ORed power is
regulated to a 5.0V dc voltage using a LDO regulator (U6). To power the board from the USB Debug Adapter
connected to DEBUG_A instead of the 12V sources, move the shorting block on the J7 header to pins 1 and 2 to
select SER_PWR. The output of the regulator powers the +5VD net on the target board, and is also connected to
one end of the header J24 (Side A) and J31 (Side B). Two shorting blocks can be put on each header to connect
the 5V net to the VREGIN and VIO pins on the two MCUs. With the J19 shorting blocks removed, a source meter
can be used across the headers to measure the current consumption of the MCU.
Note: The USB Debug Adapter does not provide the necessary peak power for the CAN transceivers to operate. One of the
12V dc sources is recommended for CAN transceiver operation.
8.3. System Clock Sources (J9, J10)
8.3.1. Internal Oscillators
The C8051F580 and C8051F582 devices installed on the target board feature a factory-calibrated, programmable
high-frequency internal oscillator (24 MHz base frequency, ±0.5%), which is enabled as the system clock source on
reset. After reset, the internal oscillator operates at a frequency of 187.5 kHz by default but may be configured by
software to operate at other frequencies. The on-chip crystal is accurate for CAN and LIN master communications
and in many applications an external oscillator is not required. However, if you wish to operate the C8051F580
device (Side A) at a frequency not available with the internal oscillator, an external crystal may be used. Refer to
the C8051F58x/59x data sheet for more information on configuring the system clock source.
8.3.2. External Oscillator Options
The target board is designed to facilitate the installation of an external crystal. Remove shorting blocks at headers
J9 and J10 and install the crystal at the pads marked Y1. Install a 10 M resistor at R2 and install capacitors at C6
and C7 using values appropriate for the crystal you select. If you wish to operate the external oscillator in capacitor
or RC mode, options to install a capacitor or an RC network are also available on the target board. R2, R3, C6, and
C7 are located on the back side of the board, near the Side A MCU. Populate C6 for capacitor mode, and populate
R3 and C6 for RC mode. Refer to the C8051F58x/59x data sheet for more information on the use of external
oscillators.

C8051F580DK
8.4. Switches and LEDs (J11, J19)
Two push-button switches are provided on the target board for each MCU. Switch RESET_A is connected to the
/RST pin of the C8051F580. Switch RESET_B is connected to the /RST pin of the C8051F582. Pressing
RESET_A puts the C8051F580 device into its hardware-reset state, and similarly for RESET_B and the
C8051F582 MCU. Switches P1.4_A and P1.4_B are connected to the MCU’s general purpose I/O (GPIO) pins
through headers. Pressing either one of these switches generates a logic low signal on the port pin. Remove the
shorting block from the header to disconnect these switches from the port pins. See Table 1 for the port pins and
headers corresponding to each switch.
Four LEDs are provided on the target board to serve as indicators. The red LED labeled PWR indicates presence
of power to the target board. The second red LED labeled COMM indicates if the CP2102 USB-to-UART bridge is
recognized by the PC. The green LED on Side A is labeled with port pin name and is connected to a C8051F580
GPIO pin through a header. Remove the shorting block from the header to disconnect the LED from the port pin.
Similarly, a second green LED on Side B is connected to the C8051F582 through another header. See Table 1 for
the port pins and headers corresponding to each LED.

8.6. Serial Interface (P5, J17)
A USB-to-UART bridge circuit (U5) and USB connector (P5) are provided on the target board to facilitate serial
connections to UART0 of the C8051F580 (Side A). The Silicon Labs CP2102 USB-to-UART bridge provides data
connectivity between the C8051F580 and the PC via a USB port. The TX and RX signals of UART0 may be
connected to the CP2102 by installing shorting blocks on header J17. The shorting block positions for connecting
each of these signals to the CP2102 are listed in Table 3. To use this interface, the USB-to-UART device drivers
should be installed as described in Section 3.2. "CP210x USB to UART VCP Driver Installation‚" on page 2.

8.7. CAN Interface and Network (J8, J14, J17, J26, TB2)
Both MCUs on the target board are connected to CAN transceivers (U3, U4) through headers. The port pins
assigned to the CAN peripheral on each MCU are P0.6 (CAN_TX) and P0.7 (CAN_RX). The C8051F580 (Side A)
is connected to U3 through the J17 header and the C8051F582 (Side B) is connected to U4 through the J26
header. The two CAN transceivers are connected to each other and form a CAN network. Other external devices
can be connected to the CAN network through the TB2 interface. The shorting block positions for connecting the
MCUs to the CAN transceivers are listed in Table 4. The pin connections for the external CAN devices are listed in
Table 5. The CAN transceivers are powered by the +5VREG node and connected through J8 and J14 headers.

8.8. LIN Interface and Network (J17, J26, TB1)
Both MCUs on the target board are connected to LIN transceivers through headers. These headers assume that
the MCU’s crossbars are configured to put the LIN TX and RX pins on port pins P1.0 and P1.1 respectively. See
the C8051F58x/59x data sheet for crossbar configuration. The C8051F580 (Side A) is connected to the T1
transceiver through the J17 header and the C8051F582 (Side B) is connected to the T2 transceiver through the
J26 header. The two LIN transceivers are connected to each other and form a LIN network. Other external devices
can be connected to the LIN network through the TB1 interface. The TB1 interface also provides the option for
connecting an external power source so that all LIN transceivers can use the same source voltage. This source
voltage can also be used to power the target board. If an external voltage source is not provided, the LIN
transceivers use the 12V provided through the P4 power adapter connector. See Section 8.2. for more power
option details. The shorting block positions for connecting the MCUs to the LIN transceivers are listed in Table 6.
The pin connections for the external LIN devices are listed in Table 7.

8.12. Potentiometer (J20)
The C8051F580 (Side A) device has the option to connect port pin P1.2 to a 10K linear potentiometer. The
potentiometer is connected through the J20 header. The potentiometer can be used for testing the analog-to-digital
(ADC) converter of the MCU.
8.13. Power Supply I/O (Side A) (TB3)
All of the C8051F580 target device’s supply pins are connected to the TB3 terminal block. Refer to Table 10 for the
TB3 terminal block connections.

8.14. Alternate Power Supply Headers (J18, J21)
The C8051F580 Target Board includes two headers that allow for alternate power sources and power
measurement. Header J18 connects the VIO voltage supplied to the Side A MCU to other peripherals on the board,
such as the P1.4_SW push-button switch pull-up, and the R27 potentiometer source. To enable current
measurement, the shorting block on J18 can be removed so that the VIO_A node only powers the VIO pin on the
MCU. Another voltage source will need to be applied to the VIO_SRC node to power the other peripherals.
Header J21 connects the P4 power-adapter supply to the V_HIGH node, which is used as the power source for the
LIN transceivers (T1, T2). The shorting block on header J21 can be removed to force the LIN transceivers to use
the voltage supply externally supplied on the +LIN_V pin on the TB1 header.
8.15. C2 Pin Sharing
On the C8051F580 (Side A), the debug pin C2CK is shared with the /RST pin. On the C8051F582 (Side B), the
debug pins C2CK and C2D are shared with the pins /RST and P3.0 respectively. The target board includes the
resistors necessary to enable pin sharing which allow the pin–shared pins (/RST and P3.0) to be used normally
while simultaneously debugging the device. See Application Note “AN124: Pin Sharing Techniques for the C2
Interface” at www.silabs.com for more information regarding pin sharing.

8.16. Target Board Pin Assignment Summary
Some GPIO pins of the C8051F580 MCU can have an alternate fixed function. For example, pin 46 on the
C8051F580 MCU is designated P0.4, and can be used as a GPIO pin. Also, if the UART0 peripheral on the MCU is
enabled using the crossbar registers, the TX signal is routed to this pin. This is shown in the "Alternate Fixed
Function" column. The "Target Board Function" column shows that this pin is used as TX on the C8051F580 Target
Board. The "Relevant Headers" column shows that this signal is routed to pin 3 of the J17 header and pin 5 of the
J1 header. More details can be found in the C8051F58x/59x data sheet. Some of the GPIO pins of the C8051F580
have been used for various functions on the target board. All pins of the Side A MCU also connect to the 96-pin
(P1) expansion connector which is not explicitly listed below. Table 11 summarizes the C8051F580 MCU pin
assignments on the target board, and also shows the various headers associated with each signal.
