The Prentice Hall Essence of Engineering Series provides a concise, practical and uniform introduction to the core components of an undergraduate engineering degree. Acknowledging the recent changes within Higher Education, this approach uses a variety of pedagogical tools - case studies, worked examples and self-test questions, to underpin the students learning.The Essence of Microprocessors will get the reader up to speed in designing small embedded microprocessor-based systems.Concentrating on embedded systems which are by far the major application for microprocessors, this book will provide you with the confidence to design, construct and program a working embedded system.Key concepts are covered in an incremental fashion, beginning with simple digital theory and computer architecture and ending up with a simple case study. The text will be split into 3 parts. Part I covers sufficient digital and computer theory to act as a foundation to the microprocessing engineering topics. Part II looks at the software aspects of the 6800/8 microprocessor; its instruction set, how to program it at assembly and high level. Part III covers the hardware aspects of interfacing, interrupt handling, testing and debugging.

The main thrust of this text is to give the neophyte student the confidence that he/she can end up actually designing, building and coding a modest but working embedded microprocessor-based system. There are many worked examples and self-assessment questions throughout the text and a complete working case study. The associated web site (see Preface) has the solutions to these latter questions, as well as many more questions and additional material. It is not designed to be an all-singing all-dancing 700+ page donkey choker of a text, but nevertheless has not skimped the coverage. And all for around $16!From the Back Cover:
* Real-world hardware and software products used to illustrate the material. * Allows the reader to design, construct, code and test a real working system. * Assumes no prior knowledge of digital systems. * A self-contained text, suitable for home study. * An associated web site giving solutions, additional examples, software etc.
