This book provides a comprehensive treatment of the microprocessor, covering both hardware and software based on the 8085 Microprocessor family. This book was first published in 1984 and it has been in the field for nearly three decades. The microprocessor concepts that were at the cutting edge of the technology in the 1970s and 80s have become fundamentals of the computer field. It is gratifying to see such acceptance of the integrated approach to teaching microprocessor concepts. The sixth edition, divided into three parts, presents an integrated approach to hardware and software in the context of the 8085 microprocessor.
Part I focuses on microprocessor architecture, the 8085 instruction set, and interfacing,
Part II introduces programming, and
Part III integrates hardware and software concepts from the earlier sections in interfacing and designing microprocessor-based products.
In-depth coverage of each topic is provided, from basic concepts to industrial applications and illustrated by numerous examples with complete schematics. Learning of the material is reinforced by assignments related to practical applications.
