Microprocessors and their applications

This paper chronicles the development of two microprocessor systems. It first provides an introduction to microprocessors and describes the design of a microcomputer. The microprocessor systems designed are used in process control and data processing applications. In the control application the first microcomputer is used to automate a system that uses a laser to trim microcircuit resistors. In the data processing application the second microprocessor system is used for real time error correction of radar data.
