The purpose of this book is to teach students how to design and implement a microcontroller-based digital system. As such, it contains material that might typically be covered in a sequence of two courses: (1) a junior-level “microprocessor” course covering the basics of how a microprocessor works, how to program it to perform basic functions, and how to interface it to various external devices using integrated peripherals; and (2) a senior-level “digital system design project” course covering more advanced topics on microprocessor programming and interfacing, along with a series of practical system design considerations. Note that a background in basic digital system design is a necessary prerequisite, ideally obtained during the student’s sophomore year. While there are a number of reasonably good texts currently available that provide such an introduction, one of the best (and my long-time personal favorite) is John F. Wakerly’s Digital Design Principles and Practices (Third Edition), Prentice Hall, 2000.
A unique feature of Microcontroller-Based Digital System Design (sub-titled Bigger Bytes of Digital Wisdom, or Bigger Bytes for short) is the availability of what I refer to as a “Lecture Workbook”, i.e., a set of lecture slides (provided in PowerPointTM format) with carefully chosen portions to be annotated or completed in class. The Lecture Workbook concept is based on the premise that notes taken during a classroom lecture serve more than mere archival of information – an encoding process occurs in the student’s brain as he/she writes. By focusing this encoding process on key words or selected aspects of hardware/software design, the time and effort spent in class can be optimized. A special set of PowerPointTM slides, which include an animated, successive annotation of the Lecture Workbook slides (including completed exercises), is available for instructor use. (The “skeleton” slides can also be made into overhead transparencies and annotated “manually”, for those instructors who prefer that mode of presentation.
