Essentials of Microprocessors

Learn what makes microprocessors tick! This class offers insights into all major aspects of microprocessors, from registers through coprocessors and everything in between. Differences between RISC and CISC architectures are explored as well as the concept of interrupts. A generic microprocessor is programmed and run in simulation to reinforce the principles learned in the lecture modules. The student will leave the class well prepared for the Xilinx Zynq training curriculum.



Who Should Attend



Novices to microprocessors or those who just need a refresher on microprocessor architecture.

Lab 1: Programming the Generic Microprocessor- Explore how to control a basic microprocessor and move data to and from memory by using assembly language.

Lab 2: Write an Interrupt-Driven Program – Examine the benefits of coding by using interrupts to detect external activities. Special interrupt instructions are covered, including enabling and disabling interrupts, writing interrupt handlers, and how the stack and registers are affected during an interrupt
