[1] Is MicroTRAK/51 a good tool to learn about microcontrollers and/or assembly language ?

Yes, absolutely! Using the built-in assembler of Micro C 8051 Development System or the SDCC 8051 Development System, combined with our low-cost 8051 Simulator option ( free with limited code size ),you can single step through assembly or mixed C/assembly code, look at register values, watch memory locations and set breakpoints. <br><br>As each assembly instruction is executed, you can examine the register values and immediately see the results of the operation. You can also see all port activity using the LED's on the real hardware. You can force ports to logic 0 or logic 1 levels using DIP switches. This hands-on process allows the beginners to get up to speed with microcontrollers fast.

[2] Why is the download slow ?

If you are using a USB to COM converter such as CBL-USB-COM-1 from BiPOM, please change the latency timer settings of the USB to COM converter. See the document: CBL-USB-COM-1 Speed Improvements
