Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We describe here the design of a personal lab station for use in the educational laboratory of a first course on microprocessors or microcontrollers. The design goal was to produce hardware that was simple enough for beginning students to completely comprehend, yet powerful enough to support a CRT display and to demonstrate useful techniques. The two-chip design exposed here provides an economical and easily understood vehicle for teaching microprocessor or microcontroller fundamentals.
