Vendor literature is usually complete and easily understood by the practicingelectronic designer, but vendor literature does not promote creative design-Microcomputer Design and Troubleshooting does. The book uniquely considers every aspect of microcomputer design from the idea to the working system. It encourages creativity by stressing:
  • Controller functions-sequencing, counting, timing, computation and management.
  • The development system that provides a temporary means of entering and executing user programs.
  • Read/write timing, the essence of hardware design.
  • Good hardware design that is much more than bringing together a CPU, memory, and I/O with the proper timing.
  • The computer system-it must be interfaced to the "world".
  • The secret to success in hardware testing and troubleshooting-understanding the problem, having a good test plan, and having the right test equipment.
  • The three basic areas of software design-documentation, philosophy, and technique.
