Schedule of Classes Information
Description: Untitled document
Fundamental logic circuits are introduced & their operation explained. Discrete components are discussed & the theory progresses to small, medium & large scale integrated circuits. These building blocks are used to develop the architecture of a microprocessor. From this assembly language programs are written that will run on a 8-bit microprocessor (8085).
(Grade Only)
