Course objectiveDeveloping applications using the Intel based microprocessor education sets. Investigate the operation of peripherals and memory devices as a whole. Develop and practice work that has been thought in the coursework. The applications developed are geared towards the usage of the units that have been desribed and to make use of the high level and assembly language related to the hardware. The loading of the programs to the computers, and monitoring of the program flows are included in the content and objectives of this course.  
Learning outcomes
  1. A student who completes the course successfully will L.O.1. learns assembly and high level microprocessor programming
