I'm planning to develop a project with STC 8051 microcontroller with SDCC 51. I bought some chips and get a free USB ISP tool for their website and download software. The problem is STC doesn't provide softwares for linux. It must be very unconfortable to compile in linux and download it in Windows. Is there any way to solve this problem?
My though is to install a windows emulator in Linux (Wine etc.). Will that works OK for ISP softwares? the STC software uses USB. Actually it is a USB to UART converter.
You may get a better response if you post your problem at http://www.8052.com/forum/. The answer may be to use the chips and tools from a supplier that provides native Linux support.
