Microcomputers are small computers that are located on single integrated circuits. They are used in embedded applications such as those found in robotics, video games, power tools, remote controls, and toys. Microcomputers are frequently used in devices and products that operate automatically. The Rabbit 2000, MIPS, and Freescale ColdFire, are all examples of microcontrollers.
The 8051 Microcontroller And Embedded Systems Using Assembly And C is a resourceful text on the 8051 microcontroller. The book provides a systematic coverage of the software and hardware features of the 8051 microcontroller. The 8051 is the most widely produced and frequently used microcontroller in the world. Its popularity has led to the creation of over fifty companies.
The text is organized into 17 chapters and 8 appendices. The first six chapters provide a coverage on the basic architecture of the 8051 microcontroller, using Assembly language. From the 7th chapter onwards, both C and Assembly languages are used to show how the 8051 interfaces with devices such as keyboards, LCDs, stepper motors, and sensors. Some of the topics are 8051 Addressing Modes, LCD and Keyboard Interfacing, Motor Control, Sensor Interfacing, and Jump, Loop, and Call Instructions. The appendices provide reference material on ASCII codes, Wire Wrapping, Flowcharts and Pseudocode, Assemblers, Suppliers, Development Resources, and Data Sheets. Numerous examples are provided to help students grasp the material.
This second edition has several salient features. New chapter topics such as C Programming, DS12887 real-time clock chip, and optoisolators, have been included. Many chapters feature newly added sections, in keeping abreast with technological advancements.
This second edition of The 8051 Microcontroller And Embedded Systems Using Assembly And C was published in 2007.
