Fuelled by example and application, this text takes readers on an in-depth, hands-on exploration of the hardware and software - giving equal treatment to both - of the Motorola 68000 microprocessor. After examining more than 75 different applications, Antonakos guides readers through the construction and programming of their own single-board computer. This edition expands coverage to include completely new topics while it updates treatments of existing topics, in an effort to reflect the latest technological trends and applications surrounding the 68000.The 8086 runs at a slower clock speed than the 68000, and requires an external clock-generator chip to control its internal timing. ... address and data buses, external interrupt features, and faster clock speed make it a better choice than the 8086. ... Storing numbers in scientific notation almost certainly necessitates the use of multiple memory locations (say eight bytes per ... This will enable us to begin answering some of the questions raised here, and to begin asking new ones.
