    Hi,
    If I want to learn 8051, can I use CY7C68013A?
    CY7C68013A has integrated 8051 microcontroller, and it's very cheap :D

    You need a C compiler or assembler for the CY7C68013A.
    The timing will be different that a 8051. I did not read all 71 pages of data. Most new 8051(s) are MUCH faster. Some of the instruction much faster.
    It is like getting a new car and by mistake they give you a rice car. It will get you to work just fine.
    I would not play with the USB functions for now.

    SDCC is one of the best 8051 compilers, and its free....

    I would need to check out the specs, but it seems as if it has a USB bootloader... Neat! Where you'd get the software ? I should imagine at Cypress!!

    Did you get a Dev board????

    I think the schematic look like this temp3.png
    Many people bought CY7C68013A at ebay or aliexpress, because it's logic analyzer clone of a product. Some people use it with Signok. I think it's same like EZ-USB or USB-FX2 interface.
    But I want use it for fun experiment with fast usb support, and if in the future I want to move to other microprocessor or FPGA, I might use it as USB to parallel. Just an idea for cheap solution :D
    I haven't bought it. Want to know first if it possible for learn 8051.

    Thank you. I'm ordering now :D

    Now I have many boards... Attiny45, Arduino Uno, Fubarino Mini, and now 8051/Cypress :D

    USB+8051
    It is a little complicated. And does not directly relate to helping you understand the 8051.
