A participant's perspective

  title={A participant's perspective},
  author={R. G. Daniels},
  journal={IEEE Micro},
Presents the history of the microprocessor as told by an active participant. The author looks at the state of the computer industry before 1970, and how this led into the beginning of microprocessors. After discussing the early days of microprocessors, he goes on to look at the industry in the 1980's, the current state of the art, and future trends. 

A Software Tool for Teaching Microcontroller System Principles

Visual 11 is a new software tool for learning microcontroller fundamentals that simulates the Motorola M68HC11 microcontroller core and several peripheral devices, suitable for microprocessor and microcontroller courses at an introductory level.

Regarding Bioethics: A Sociology of Morality

This essay examines how the author's vocational choices and career path were shaped by historical circumstance, leading him to a degree in sociology and to participation in the odd and interesting interdiscipline of bioethics.

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it

The maxim above, coined by George Santayana (1905), provides one reason why it makes sense to know the history of science in general, and that of one’s own science in particular— but far from the

Why a new parts selection and management program

Changes in electronics technologies and market dynamics have made traditional electronic parts selection and management practices inadequate. This paper presents the evolution of relevant technology



The microprocessor - a biography

The Microprocessor presents a fascinating look into the technology, history, and personalities behind the development of the microprocessor, including how it works and how it's fabricated.

The Birth of the Microprocessor

The story starts in February 1968 when I joined Fairchild Semiconductor R&D Lab in Palo Alto, CA, USA and believed that the future of digital electronics belonged to MOS technology because one could integrate in the same silicon area ten times more logic gates with half the number of manufacturing steps required by bipolar technology.

Built-In Self-Test Trends in Motorola Microprocessors

It is argued that structured design techniques offer the most promising prospects for solving the design and test problems resulting from this increase in complexity in the Motorola microprocessor family.
