Appropriate for courses in Introduction to Microprocessors/Microcontrollers, Interfacing, Control Automation and Control Systems, or Robotics. Material is thoroughly updated and expanded to include the latest concepts and terminology. Uses assembly language source code for the free ASll assembler, the assembler of choice. Five-part organizational format covers I. Introducing Microcontroller Technology; II. Software; III. Hardware; IV. Interfacing; V. The Microcontroller World.
Spasov lays the basic foundation needed to understand and use any microcontroller by illustrating the use of one very popular microcontroller--the Motorola 68HC11. Serving as a guide to real-time control software and interfacing, the expanded, updated and improved Second Edition offers an application-driven approach to a wide range of topics at a wide range of levels.
From the Publisher
Focusing on one specific type of microcontroller - the Motorola 68HC11 - this definitive resource lays the basic foundation needed to understand and use any 8-bit microcontroller, and makes an ideal supplement to a manufacturer's data book or to set of hands-on exercises using a microcontroller training kit or simulation software. Covering a wide range of topics at a wide range of levels, it serves as a guide to real-time control software and interfacing, and concentrates on applications throughout - encouraging hands-on practice using computer simulation or an evaluation board. Exploring basic principles from the ground up, it considers such topics as addressing modes, scaling operations, stack operations for subroutine calls and interrupt handling, and offers interactive programs based on using the ASII assembler. Presenting application examples and detailed explanations of interfacing subsystems that are useful for hands-on work, this newest edition now expands material on the 68HC 12 microcontroller and updates all internet references.
