Course description: Course objectives: This course offers thorough, balanced, and practical • The ability to explore architecture of an 80x86 coverage of both software and hardware aspects of a microprocessor and the Pentium processor microcomputer system. Intel 8086/8088 microprocessor families. will be used as a study material in this course. Students • The ability to understand the 8088/86 will be exposed to its internal architecture, its operation microprocessor instructions and addressing and control, the organization and interface requirements modes. for a microcomputer system, the structures and • The ability to analyze and develop an assembly operations of standard hardware components associated language programs for applications. with a microcomputer system. This is followed by a • The ability to understand the 8088/86 study of its addressing modes, instruction sets, assembly microprocessor hardware, signals, registers, bus language programming and programming problems cycles and advances on the Pentium processor including peripheral device service routines and families. arithmetic operations. Special emphasis is given to • The ability to design a memory system and to memory and I/O addressing techniques. Students will be interface it to a microprocessor. taught about the functions of serial and parallel • The ability to design circuits to interface input/ peripherals of the 8085 family. The students will also be output ports and peripherals to a exposed to a different system architecture belonging to microprocessor. the 8086, to enable them to understand the architectural • The ability to work in group to do design migration from 8085 to 8086. Finally, lab microprocessor report writing and to understand experiments associated with this course involve machine code and writing prosedure. assembly program development, debugging, and testing.

considerate and respectful of others. It is rude. and must be done professionally and seriously (as judged by the grader). we expect you to behave like a professional. Additional lecture notes and examples will be given and discussed in class as much as time permits. Official name (not nickname). A professional engineer is polite. • Students are responsible for the reading assignments from the text and handouts • Students are responsible for following up the lecture materials • Students are responsible for reading additional information and examples in order to understand the materials discussed in the lectures. The lab score will be combined with the lecture part to make up the final grade. and in the lab. and disrespectful to your fellow students and to the professor to talk in class. • You are training to be a professional engineer. submissions must be neat.
