Course Description: This is an introductory course in microprocessor applications for students who already have basic knowledge of digital circuits principles. Computer hardware organization is analyzed, and machine-language programs are written and run. Hardware and software aspects of a popular eight-bit microprocessor are studied in detail. Theoretical ideas are reinforced by building and testing realistic experimental systems in the laboratory.
Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:
- assemble, test, analyze, and troubleshoot microprocessor-based systems;
- use a microprocessor system and modify its design as necessary; and
- function effectively on teams.
