I would suggest to go for AVR or any other.

AVR are in short supply, try any other microcontroller

I know one person who conducts it for AVR, he also has his own designed development board which is best for all students as well as proffessionals, If yu are ready to form a group then he may think on it but it will be resonably paid sension.

If u r adament about learning AVR only, then do it for free from the following website. But keep in mind AVR chips are in short supply these days and no one knows when and if ever will their supply normalize..........

The website is under construction but phone nos and address is provided so you can talk to them.The details are also provided.

for 8051 go to www.8052.com or buy mazadi and mazadi with any low cost developing kit

Its your choice again to which one you should go but i will suggest to go for latest uC like AVR,PIC,ARM etc.
No point in learning the things (8051) which world is leaving behind, learn latest one , be with new world

well, u may get At89C52 from robokits.co.in for just Rs 60. There is no worth to start from 8051. just go straight to Avr.

Cant Understand why people believe so.there is nothing wrong with the x51 core. There are a lot of higher end controllers working with the 51 core. What really matters is NOT which controller you use, but HOW you use them, and that is where you have to work on. I normally work with PIC and TI chips, but sometimes I prefer a 2051 over a 16F73, depending upon the application. They are actually cool, and enough for many simple applications. Beginners should worry more about their LOGIC and the algorithms. If you are good in that, all it takes to get along with any MICRO in the world, will be a couple of days.

We sell high quality 8051 development boards, which come along with sample codes, tutorials to get started, and a high quality after sales support.

Our 8051 Advanced Development Board perfectly suits your requirement.

Do check our collection of development tools for 8051 at www.probots.co.in/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1&zenid=a9cd60f6c8392f7b54a52361938c5e63

I completely agree with allbits :)

I am not against anyone , everyone has his own views.

Reason behind going for new generation uC is same as what we are doing today with petrol, electricity, valves used earlier instead of transitor.

We know that on one day this technology or uC will be counted in past, we know there is no alternative today on petrol,electricity that's why "save fuel" thinking is going on. Now a days Atmels AVR uC are also out of market, peoples are paying Rs. 200 for Atmega8 instead of Rs. 50. Just someone is still selling it with codes can't become the reason for buying it or using it, for some cases it is OK.

I think its not only cost which makes a difference its speed, simplicity in programming, logical thinking time reqd for the compiler which dont have inbuilt libraries like Keil also matters a lot.

Anyway we can't predict the duration how much they will last long but logically old one will get out of market first. And hece i made comment to go for lateest uC.

You are right, Ullas,
but AVR (or PIC) is NOT the latest !!!
but you still have a wide variety of cutting edge chips under the PIC, atmel and 51 architecture !!!
I guess you might be referring to the old 89C51/52 chips, the 40 pin ones, with NO ADCs. Yes, they are obslete indeed. But the core aint.

I had gone through Mazadi and mazadi...itz an awesum book (according to my vision) for 8051 n family..n ll make a base for beginers...

But 89v51rd2 is 64 kb flash under Rs 120 :) ... Almost 8 times the 89s52/c52.

A lot of stuff can be put in 64 kb and at this price i might say its quite good where a ADC is not required. And it doesn't need a programmer either :) ... just a serial port will do.

8051 is a very easy to use micro-controller, with less instruction set. Once you know this, then soon you can upgrade to PIC or AVR. You can take up the book "The 8051 microcontroller and embedded systems" (Using Assembly and C) by Muhammad Ali Mazidi.
