Timers and counters are useful for measuring time intervals, generating time delays, counting events, and generating baud rates for serial communication. The 8051 microcontroller's timers and counters have some specific registers to control and configure them like TCON, TMOD, TL0, TH0, TL1, TH1, etc.
In timer mode, the timers can be used to generate time delays or time intervals, while in counter mode, they can be used to count events or pulses. The timer and counter values can be read or written to by the CPU, and their values can be used to control various operations in the microcontroller.
