Hello all,

I need a little help. I want get familiar with the 8051 microcontroller and was looking around online for an evaluation board/starter kit for this purpose. I saw an evaluation board from Keil that uses the Philips P89LPC932 Microcontroller. The website states that this controller is part of the 8051 family. Here is the website: http://www.keil.com/c51/mcb900/

My question is, If I want to program this controller say in assembly language, is the instruction set the same as for the 8051??
