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


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

have drastically evolved through the past few years. 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 over every other form of computer; every from the largest mainframes to the smallest handheld computers 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-organization of the book, 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 book. The inclusion of Pentium Processors and their completes the experience.
