Microcomputer Engineering (3rd Edition)
Gene H. Miller
Overall a good book, but lacks concrete interfacing examples
This book contains lots of examples and source code so students/readers can get a firm grasp on the programming constructs of the HC11 language. Yet,it lacks in it's examples with interfacing. There are no examples that would show one how to actually wire completly an external device to the EVBU board.
8080a Microcomputer Interfacing and Programming
Peter R. Rony
Sams Technical Publishing
Old - Was Quite Good for its Time
The was one of two textbooks for me when it was brand new in a course taught by the Electrical Engineering Department. For my memory. Both the course and book was pretty good ( I was a sciences major at the time). I am amaze to find this book in Amazon - searched on the Authors name. Note: all 17 finds appear to be out of print. For today and some one learning - NO Not recommended. I would ...
Embedded Microcomputer Systems: Real Time Interfacing
Jonathan W. Valvano
A good software with a not-so-good book
The 4 stars that I have used is a sort of average of 5 stars for the software accompanying the book, and 2 stars for the book itself. If you are new to the world of embedded systems and yet to work on a real project, then the simulator provided with this book is simply superb. It lets you simulate external I/O devices like LED, switches, CRT, Motors in a pretty realistic way. It also allows input ...
Microcomputer Systems: The 8086/8088 Family Architecture Programming and Design, Second Edition
Glenn A. Gibson
Very Confusing and Insufficient
A very bad book. Very dry reading. Usually tough to understand what the authors are even trying to talk about as they tend to skip over important points. Very little if any examples on how to actually program assemly; the graphs and pictorials they have are very confusing and irrelevant. I would keep a mile away from this thing.
Collectible Microcomputers (Schiffer Book for Collectors)
If you are into collecting old computers (mainly the 8bit era), this is a must own. It has the specs and approximate prices for each machine from the first minicomputers to the mid 90's with the Amigas and soforth. Some x86 architecture items, mainly the revolutionary items for any 486/Pentium items since they are ... well the industry standard practically. I recommend in a heartbeat.
Microcomputer Theory and Servicing (4th Edition)
Stuart M. Asser
Vincent J. Stigliano
Emphasis is on the need-to-know information, practical applications, and the fault symptoms and analysis required for computer repair. Features include an introduction to PC networking, theory, setup, and servicing, and A+ certification, and more. Previous edition: c1997. DLC: Microcomputers--Maintenance and repair.
Microcontrollers and Microcomputers Principles of Software and Hardware Engineering
Frederick M Cady
Oxford University Press, USA
I am half way through a semester teaching with this book and I could not be happier. It presents topics in a very well thought out way. It does not emphasize one particular processor which is a good idea. It teaches PRINCIPLES, not specifics. When I look at the organization, I can tell that the author is a good teacher. He is a master of presenting material in a logical, well thought out ...
68000 Microcomputer Systems: Designing and Troubleshooting
Alan D. Wilcox
A detailed handbook that emphasizes modular hardware design, project planning and scheduling. Filled with data sheets, diagrams nad helpful illustrations, this title is one more of a long line of bestselling Prentice-Hall 68000 family titles.
Introduction to Embedded Microcomputer Systems: Motorola 6811/6812 Simulations
Jonathan W. Valvano
This book is very accessible and the TExAS simulator is useful for learning. However it is good to have a general idea of how a computer works before you read this book, so I would recommend reading the introductory computing book by Patt and Patel first.
IBM Microcomputers: A Programmer's Handbook (J Ranade Ibm Series)
Maria P. Canton
This reference handbook provides information to software developers, applications programmers, and applications developers on the full range of IBM microcomputers. Covers the PC, XT, AT, PS/2, and Intel 8086, 80286, 80386, and 80486 chips.
Fundamentals of Digital Logic and Microcomputer Design, 5th Edition
I find the book "Fundamentals of digital logic and microcomputer design" very useful. I am a Cal Poly student, and took a few courses from Professor Rafiquzzaman. He is an excellent professor. It seems to me that the unproffesional comments by the other Cal Poly student are motivated. He probably took Professor Rafiquzzaman's class and received a bad grade. You should go through the book ...
