For Silicon Laboratories, Inc. C8051F042 — Ports 0-7
Simulation support for this peripheral or feature is comprised of:
- Dialog boxes which display and allow you to change peripheral configuration.
- VTREGs (Virtual Target Registers) which support I/O with the peripheral.
These simulation capabilities are described below.
Parallel Port n Dialog
This dialog displays the SFR and pins of Port n. This port
may be used as a 8-bit general purpose I/O port.
Pn represents the Pn SFR. The HEX value
and value of each bit is displayed and may be changed from this
PnMDOUT configures the output mode of each pin
for this port. When PnMDOUT.x=1, Pn.x is push-pull.
When PnMDOUT.x=0, Pn.x is open drain.
Pins represents the states of the pins on the simulated
MCU. You may set the level of the input pin to high (1) or low
Note: Port 1 allows each input pin to be
configured in Analog or Digital mode. See P1MDIN
description for Port 1 for more information.
Data Type: unsigned char
The PORTx VTREGs represent the I/O pins of the simulated
MCU for Port 0, Port 1, and so on. PORT0 represents Port 0, PORT1
represents Port 1, etc. You may read PORTx to determine the
state of the output pins of that port. For example, in the command
window, you may type,
to obtain value corresponding to the set pins of Port 0. You may
also change the input values of port pins by changing the value of
the VTREG. For example,
sets the upper four port pins of Port 1 to a value of 1 and the
lower 4 port pins to a value of 0. You may use the bitwise operators
AND(&), OR(|) and XOR(^) to change individual bits of the PORTx
VTREGs. For example:
PORT1 |= 0x01; /* Set P1.0 Pin */
PORT3 &= ~0x02; /* Clr P3.1 Pin */
PORT1 ^= 0x80; /* Toggle P1.7 Pin */
