Introduction to Microcontrollers

Architecture, Programming, and Interfacing for the Freescale 68HC12

This book is a comprehensive, introductory text/reference for electrical and computerengineers and students with little experience with a high-level programming language. It systematically teaches the programming of a microcontroller in assembly language, as well as C and C++. This books also covers the principles of good programming practice through top-down design and the use of data structures. It is suitable as an introductorytext for a first course on microcomputers that demonstrates what a small computer cando.

Textbook for sophmore/junior level (varies by curriculum) courses in microcontrollers/microprocessors such as: E319K Introduction to Microcontrollers at University of Texas; Self-study/reference for practicing engineers.
