Guide for Microprocessors and Interfacing – Douglas Hall – 2nd Edition


A microprocessor (abbreviated µP) is a digital component with miniaturized transistors on a single semiconductor integrated (IC). One or more typically serve as a central unit (CPU) in a computer system or handheld device.

Microprocessors have drastically evolved through the past few years. Computing has, hence never remained the same. From their humble beginnings as the drivers for calculators, the continued increase in has led to the dominance of microprocessors over every other form of computer; every system from the largest mainframes to the smallest handheld now uses a microprocessor at its core.

A trusted name in the world of microprocessors, Douglas V Hall has been almost synonymous with effectively teaching microprocessors.

The content- of the , Hall: Microprocessors and Interfacing, Revised 2nd Edition, reflects the way microprocessor 8086 is taught. 8086 is still the best starting point for about microprocessors. Hence the discourse is mainly based on 8086. Advanced features of newer processors are also discussed toward the end of the . The inclusion of Pentium Processors and their architecture completes the experience.
