This text provides an introduction to the concepts, principles, and techniques of microprocessors and microprocessor-based systems, focusing on the elements and features of the 68HC11 microprocessor. Three chapters reviewing digital principles and circuits make the text suitable for use for those with a minimal background or those who have been away from the field for a while. The text can be used in electronic technology, computer technology, and computer science programs from the vocational school to four-year college level. This sixth edition includes new photos, illustrations, and exercises to help explain concepts. There is also an increase in the number of chapter review questions, problems, and troubleshooting exercises. The authors are affiliated with Monroe Community College. Annotation c.
