An introduction to microprocessors, updated to cover recent models. Designed as a first course in microcomputers, this new edition covers the hardware and machine language software of the 8080/8085 and Z-80 8-bit microprocessors. It explores various aspects of microcomputer technology using examples of 8080/8085 and Z-80 applications. There is material on 5-1/4" and 3-1/2" floppy disk drives as well as double density and RLL encoded hard drives, and the transition from 8-bit to 16-bit technology - the 16-bit technology chapter covering the 80286, the 80386, the 803860SX and 80486. The book also provides coverage of the Intel and Zilog programmable peripheral controller chip.

Loaded with troubleshooting tips, this guide will help users develop an understanding of the hardware components of a microcomputer system and the role of the software to control that hardware. Highlights three compatible 8-bit microprocessor chips as models—the Intel 8080 and 8085, and the Zilog Z-80—and takes readers step-by-step through the building of a microcomputer to help them learn the differences between RAM and ROM and how these two types of memory are interfaced to the microprocessor; how the input and output port works; and how to construct a serial interface. Uses 14 detailed program examples to illustrate common programming techniques used in software, and culminates with the development of an assembly language game program called NIM. Covers the latest memory technologies, i.e, flash memory and synchronous drams; new modem standards, such as the V.34 28.8K and V.90 56K; changes in floppy and hard disk technologies; and detailed descriptions on each of the 80x86 processor family members through the Pentium II. Contains over 50 quality illustrations and diagrams, and describes more than 70 lab projects. For electrical engineers, or anyone seeking a foundation in microcomputer technology.
