8051 Jam Byte-Code Player

The 8051 Jam Byte-Code Player is written in the C programming language specifically for the architecture of the 8051 family of microprocessors. Together, the 8051 Jam Byte-Code Player and .jbc files from the supporting vendor allow test and programming algorithms for IEEE 1149.1 Joint Test Action Group (JTAG)-compliant devices to be asserted in devices via the JTAG port using an 8051.

The construction of the 8051 Jam Byte-Code Player permits fast programming times, small programming files, and easy in-field upgrades. Version 1.0 is the first release of the 8051 Jam Byte-Code Player, and it will read Jam Byte-Code (JBC) Files that comply with the Jam Specification version 1.1.

The 8051 Jam Player source code (jbi51.c) is provided as an example port for a specific processor architecture.

jbc2data Utility

Also included with the 8051 Jam Byte-Code Player is the jbc2data conversion utility. This utility converts binary Jam Byte-Code files (.jbc) into a hexadecimal data array. This array can then be included in the source code when storing the JBC file in ROM.
