For one or two-semester courses in Microprocessors or Intel 16-32 Bit Chips.

Future designers of microprocessor-based electronic equipment need a systems-level understanding of the 80x86 microcomputer. This text offers thorough, balanced, and practical coverage of both software and hardware topics. Basic concepts are developed using the 8088 and 8086 microprocessors, but the 32-bit versions of the 80x86 family are also discussed. The authors examine how to assemble, run, and debug programs, and how to build, test, and troubleshoot interface circuits.

Back cover copy

Intel's 80x86 family of microprocessors is the most widely used architecture in modern microcomputer systems. This widely acclaimed edition provides comprehensive coverage of both the software and hardware of the 8088 and 8086 microprocessors. New material has been added on number system conversions, binary arithmetic, and combinational logic operations.

Part I explores the software architecture and how to write, execute, and debug assembly language programs. It includes many practical concepts and software applications. In addition, the various steps of the assembly language program development cycle are explored. Part II examines the hardware architecture of microcomputers built with the 8088 and 8086 microprocessors. It presents the function and operation of each of the microprocessors' hardware interfaces: memory, input/output, and interrupt. The role of each of these subsystems is explored in relation to overall microcomputer system operation. Part III provides detailed coverage of the other microprocessors in the 80x86 family: the 80286, 80386, 80486, and Pentium' processors. The newest Pentium(R) family--Pentium(R) III and Pentium(R) IV#&151;are also examined.
