Essentials of Microprocessors

Course Description

Learn what makes microprocessors tick! This class offers insights into all major aspects of microprocessors, from registers through coprocessors and everything in between. Differences between RISC and CISC architectures are explored as well as the concept of interrupts. A generic microprocessor is programmed and run in simulation to reinforce the principles learned in the lecture modules. The student will leave the class well prepared for the Xilinx Zynq® All Programmable SoC training curriculum.
