The popular 8085 processor and its peripherals have been used to explain the basic concepts of microprocessor operation and system realization. The text can be used by electrical engineering undergraduates in their first course on microprocessors, and by engineering students in other disciplines and students of science with some preparation in digital electronics.
· A summary of the material that follows is provided at the beginning of each chapter. This periscopes the contents of the chapter and also serves as an aid in revision.· The peripheral devices are discussed comprehensively. · It is probably the only microprocessor text that gives design principles along with complete circuit and printed circuit board details of a stand-alone microcomputer. This also serves as an outstanding illustration of practical realization of microprocessor-based systems.· The text has been successfully tried out in instrumenta-tion courses and also in national workshops on microprocessor systems.· In the present edition, a sample set of monitor routines has been given, the number of problems has been substantially increased, and full solutions to the extended problem set have been provided.
