* Covers troubleshooting and configuration as well as essential design and programming techniques * The writing is clear, concise and easy to follow with practical illustrations throughout * The introductory chapters on embedded microcontroller architecture and programming are written at the right level with an applications focus for practicing engineers Written around the Motorola 68HC11 microcontroller, which is a popular choice for industrial applications and among professional circuit designers and from an engineer's perspective. The microcontrollers that are at the heart of most of the intelligent devices surrounding us from microwave ovens to programmable controllers are becoming easier and simpler to use. Most automobiles, factories and even kitchen appliances have embedded controllers in them. But when these devices fail, the solution to the problem needs to be found and the repairs done quickly. This book will help the technician, engineer and user understand the microcontroller-based systems along with the most common problems and their solutions. This book covers design, specification, programming, installation, configuration and of course troubleshooting.Park, John is the author of 'Practical Embedded Controllers Design and Troubleshooting With the Motorola 68Hc11' with ISBN 9780750658027 and ISBN 0750658029.
