Software experiments using an 8085 Kit to learn its instruction set. Hardware experiments for the use of peripherals like 8251 (USART). Experiments using a development board to learn the instruction set and assembly programming for 8051 family of microcontrollers. Experiments to learn Port IO, control of on chip peripherals such as timers, interfacing with off chip peripherals such as LCD displays, Key boards, Stepper motors and ADC chips. Experiments for the use of other microcontrollers such as PIC using d evelopment boards.
