This book provides students with a solid foundation in the techlogy of microprocessors and microcontrollers, their principles and applications. It comprehensively presents material necessary for understanding the internal architecture and system design aspects of Intel's 8085 and 8086 microprocessors, and Intel's 8051 and 8096 microcontrollers. The book maintains throughout a balance between basic concepts and the skill sets needed for system design. The book also explains hardware architecture, instruction set and programming, support chips, peripheral interfacing, and cites several relevant examples to help the readers develop a complete understanding of industrial application projects. Several system design case studies are included to reinforce the concepts discussed. This second edition introduces additional topics such as I/O interfacing and programming, serial interface programming, and delay programming using 8086 and 8051. More examples and case studies have also been added. With its exhaustive coverage and practical approach, the book will be indispensable to undergraduate students of electronics and communications, and electronics and instrumentation engineering. It can also be used for a variety of courses covering microprocessors, microcontrollers, and embedded system design.
