EET 267 - Microprocessors

Study of microprocessor and microcontroller hardware and software.  Microprocessor (Intel and Motorola 8/16/32/64-bit machines) assembly language programming using assemblers, DEBUG, disassemblers, monitors, and loaders will be applied to industrial applications of microprocessors and microcontrollers.  Computer architecture and system design methods for microprocessor-based systems are also covered.  Appropriate laboratory exercises provide hands-on experience in two areas: microprocessor and microcontroller assembly language, and system interface hardware.
