This introductory text provides the basics of computer processors for courses introducting microprocessors or microprocessor applications. Its orientation is not so much towards a description of how microprocessors themselves are designed, but rather how microprocessors can be used to do something useful. Thus, it is aimed not at the electrical major who needs a strong understanding of the internal workings of microprocessor chips, but at the electrical or non-electrical major who needs adequate background to intelligently use, program, modify and maintain microprocessor systems or to manage those people who do so. The coverage focuses on two popular microprocessor chips, the MC6809 and the MC68000. The book is suitable for students whose only knowledge of computers is some higher-level language programming experience. A microprocessor simulator program is included to motivate students to learn the details of a "working" microprocessor.
