Microprocessors presents an overview of the state of the art in the field of microprocessors and illustrates, with the aid of patents, its utilization and application. Organized into six parts, the book begins with an introduction to the microprocessor, microcomputer, and software. Parts I-III focus on program control, digital control, and electrical motor control. Subsequent parts show the medical applications, measuring instruments, and treatment of data in microprocessors.
