What will you learn in this course?
- Basic concepts of microprocessors and their essential functionalities.
- Ability to comprehend microprocessor architecture.
- Ability to read instruction set documentation and understand its implementation and execution.
- Identify common peripherals.
- Understand different methods of interfacing I/O peripherals.
- Understand and design timing diagrams for various instructions.
Are there any software or hardware requirements for this course?
Yes. We will be using an online simulator (Sim8085) for simulating our assembly language programs. It is a very straightforward and simple simulator that allows us to check for flag status, changes in memory locations, and register contents. Using this simulator we will understand how assembly language instructions affect the internal components of the 8085 microprocessor.
Generally, we would advise you to get a physical 8085 learning kit (like this one). However, looking at the bigger picture in terms of our embedded systems track, we would advise that you save your money. Instead, learn the basics of microprocessors in this course and invest in a good development kit when you begin the course on the ARM Cortex M processor.
What is the target of this course?
This course is part of our tracks in Embedded Systems, IoT, and Robotics. We have designed these tracks and their constituent courses (like this one) to equip learners with the basic requirements of entry-level jobs or internships in the respective fields. Head over to the pages of any of these tracks to get more information.
Are there any pre-requisites for this course?
- Digital Electronics (Strongly recommended)
- Knowledge of basic electronic components
