Board Introduction

The NuMaker-ML51PC  development board consists of two parts, a ML51PC0AE  platform and an on-board Nu-Link2-Me debugger and programmer. The NuMaker-ML51PC  allows users to quickly develop and easily program and debug application.

The NuMaker-ML51PC  offers ML51PC0AE  full pins extension connectors, Arduino UNO compatible extension connectors and diversified power supply option. It is an easy-to-develop platform for user to expand the functionality and build the applications. The NuMaker-ML51PC  also provides an ammeter connector, allowing user to monitor the microcontroller’s power consumption during development.

The Nu-Link2-Me is a debugger and programmer that supports on-line programming and debugging through SWD interface. The on-board 16 Mbit SPI Flash allows it able to off-line program the target microcontroller. The Nu-Link2-Me is also a USB mass storage device for drag-and-drop programming of the target microcontroller.  Additionally, the Nu-Link2-Me provides virtual COM port (VCOM) function to print out messages on PC. Nu-Link2-Me can be separated from NuMaker-ML51PC , allowing user to use as a mass production programming tool.

Quick Start

1. Install the preferred toolchain. Please make sure at least one of the toolchains has been installed.
  - KEIL C51
  - IAR EW8051
2. Download and install the latest Nuvoton Nu-Link Driver. Please install the Nu-Link USB Driver as well at the end of the installation.
  - Download and install Nu-Link_Keil_Driver when using Keil C51.
  - Download and install Nu-Link_IAR_Driver when using IAR EW8051
3. Download and unzip the Board Support Package ( BSP ).
  - Download and unzip ML51_Series_BSP_Keil when using Keil C51.
  - Download and unzip ML51_Series_BSP_IAR when using IAR EW8051
4. Hardware Setup
  (1) Open the virtual COM ( VCOM ) function by changing Nu-Link2-Me VCOM Switch No. 1 and 2 to ON.

  (2) Connect the ICE USB connector to the PC USB port through USB cable.

  (3) Find the “Nuvoton Virtual COM Port” at Device Manger.

5. Use the “Template” project as an example. The project can be found under the BSP folders.
  For Keil C51
  - ML51_Series_BSP_Keil_V1.XX
    - SampleCode
      - Template
        - Project_temp
          - .KEIL
  For IAR EW8051
  - ML51_Series_BSP_IAR_V1.XX
    - SampleCode
      - Template
        - Project_temp
          - .IAR
6. Open and execute the project under the toolchain. For detail setting, please refer to the NuMaker-ML51PC User Manual.
7. User can see the result in the ternimal window on PC.
