Introduction to Microcontrollers is a comprehensive introductory text/reference for electrical and computer engineers, students, and even hobbyists who have little experience in a high-level programming language. The book helps them understand how a typical microcontroller executes assembly language instructions and addressing modes on microprocessors. The book shows how to program with C++ and compile assembly language statements. The book utilizes the new 16-bit microcontroller, the Motorola 68Hc12, as the primary example. This chip replaces the very popular 8-bit microcontroller, the 68Hc11, as the leading microprocessor for a wide variety of applications and as a core tool for teaching engineering students. This new microcontroller is expected to be popular in industry because of its low cost per unit, low power consumption, and high processing speed.

Review quote

"Taking the new 16-bit chip as an example likely to become very popular in industry, Lipovski (electrical and computer engineering, U. of Texas-Austin) explains to engineers and engineering students how a computer executes instructions, how a high-level language statement converts to assembler language, what can be done on a small computer, and how the microcomputer is interfaced to the outside world. He begins at a very elementary level that readers who have only used computer could follow. The tutorial structure would be suitable for classroom use as well. The CD contains software that can simulate programs under Windows or can actually collect data from and control external hardware. He includes no bibliography.Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
