Microprocessors are informally called the “heart” of the computer for a good reason. They are the brain and soul behind every electronic device, from modern day smartphones to the most complex supercomputer. Microprocessors literally control our lives, this course will be an exciting look into the intricate working of the modern day technological marvel.
You will learn the concepts and ideas that went behind designing the first generation of microprocessors by Intel for personal computers like – 8085, 8086, 80286 and 80386.
The recent generation of microprocessors will also be covered – 80486 and the Pentium processors.
Since 8086 laid the foundations of microprocessors, it’ll be dealt in more detail with the importance of the various peripheral devices and the way they are connected to it.
You will also learn to program in assembly language which will be helpful, if you ever wish to pursue the path of programming microprocessors.
