16-Bit-Microprocessor Systems: Structure, Behavior, and by Dr.-Ing. Thomas Flik, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hans Liebig (auth.)

By Dr.-Ing. Thomas Flik, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hans Liebig (auth.)

In the previous few years, quite a few books on microprocessors have seemed out there. such a lot of them originated within the context of the 4-bit and the 8-bit microprocessors and their relatively basic constitution. although, the techno-logical improvement from 8-bit to 16-bit microprossors ended in processor elements with a considerably extra complicated constitution and with an accelerated performance and in addition to a rise within the method architecture's complexity. This books takes this development under consideration. It examines 16-bit micro-processor structures and descrihes their constitution, their habit and their programming. the foundations of laptop or­ ganization are taken care of on the part point. this is often performed by way of an in depth exam of the attribute functionali­ ty of microprocessors. in addition the interactions among and software program, which are standard of microprocessor know-how, are brought. Interfacing concepts are one of many focal issues of those issues. This puplication is equipped as a textbook and is meant as a self-teaching path on 16-bit microprocessors for college kids of computing device technological know-how and communications, layout engineers and clients in a large choice of technical and clinical fields. simple wisdom of boolean algebra is thought. the alternative of fabric is predicated at the 16-bit microprocessors which are at the moment in the marketplace; however, the presentation isn't really sure to somebody of those microprocessors.
