Microprocessor Systems Handbook, 1977


Microprocessor Systems Handbook, D. P. Burton and A. L. Dexter, Analog Devices, 1977.

This book was written at a time when A/D and D/A converters were first being interfaced to microprocessors. It covers the fundamentals of microprocessor hardware and software as well as the A/D and D/A converter interface. The AD574 12-bit SAR ADC was introduced in 1978 and was the first 12-bit ADC with a microprocessor-compatible interface. 

Microprocessor Systems Handbook is available for download.
