Learning the Atmel 8051 programming

I'm gathering resources for learning the Atmel 8051.  I'm not finding
specific resources for the Atmel 8051 for assembly.  Is there a great
deal of difference between an Atmel 8051 and a non-specific 8051?
Would "almost" any 8051 book and code work on the Atmel?

Also, website or book recommendations are appreciated.

Thanks,

Sean

Of course not.  The programming language of an Atmel 8051 is the same
as for any other (true) 8051 --- that's the *definition* of it it
being an "8051", essentially.

No.  If there were, it woulnd't have the right to call itself an 8051.

To a certain extent.  While the machine language is the same, almost
every 8051 variant has its own set of hardware peripherals, and thus
its own meanings for all the SFRs.  There's a common ground even
there, but you'll have to expect to recompile existing code every time
you change from one 8051 variant to the other.

http://www.lfw.co.uk/ - at least, the 8051 architecture reduced me to
looking at their products on a few occasions ;)

Yes.  all 540 odd 8051's have a lot in common. There are more
differences between members of the Atmel 8051 family that some of those
members and members of other silicon vendors 8051's.

Which Atmel 51 did you have in mind?

See www.accu.org  books section. There are reviews of over 3000 books by
Engineers. There is a section on Embedded books. The BTW ACCU does NOT
sell books.  

Also http://Quest.phaedsys.org for the C51 primer and other papers on
embedded development

There is some 8051 Sw and free tools on the main part of the web site.

after that there is of course

www.8052.com
www.atmel.com

And get the original Intel MCS-51 manual. It goes into a lot of
detail.. better if you can score a printed version, but they were
printed on very low quality paper.

I have an Atmel "microcontroller" data book containing all the detail
from the original MCS51 manual, plus the variations for their products.
I don't think you can download it from their site, I got it from an
atmel distributor.

You can still download the MCS51 manual from the Intel site.  I did it the
other day.

Did you mean this document, or do you have a more complete one?

No it has more info than that. It has lots of hardware details on how
the ports, oscillator and reset circuit work. It is identical to the
original intel one, but with further sections for the special features
of the atmel devices.
