Hello friends, it has been a while since I published here. The fact is that I have been busy working on some good projects, that I didn’t get enough time to write anything useful. This article is for students and hobbyists who are interested in playing with micro controllers. I thought of introducing you to a handful of cool and really useful books on 8051 micro controller.

Very soon I will come up with an article that reviews global editions of great 8051 micro controller books.
