|A detailed study shows how a typical support device may be programmed to demonstrate its facilities. The remainder of the chapter comprises a collection of programming problems, based on the techniques described in earlier chapters, but also introducing some new programming methods.
Programming a support device
When designing and building a microelectronic system, it may sometimes be necessary to incorporate one or more complex ICs into the system. The system may need a parallel input port, or a serial output port, or it may need an analogue-to-digital converter. Each of these devices has its own special features and it is unlikely to work unless it is set up in exactly the right way. There is not enough ...
