This comprehensive text provides an easily accessible introduction to the principles and applications of microprocessors. It explains the fundamentals of architecture, assembly language programming, interfacing, and applications of Intel’s 8086/8088 micro-processors, 8087 math coprocessors, and 8255, 8253, 8251, 8259, 8279 and 8237 peripherals. Besides, the book also covers Intel’s 80186/80286, 80386/80486, and the Pentium family micro-processors.
The book throughout maintains an appropriate balance between the basic concepts and the skill sets needed for system design. A large number of solved examples on assembly language programming and interfacing are provided to help the students gain an insight into the topics discussed.
The book is eminently suitable for undergraduate students of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, and Information Technology.
