Programming the Zilog ZNEO Microcontroller by Example

Programming The Zilog ZNEO Microcontroller By Example

The Programming The Zilog ZNEO Microcontroller By Example series will provide readers with a thorough understanding of how to design and program embedded control systems using the Zilog ZNEO microcontroller. This book series will present, in detail, all of the architectural features of the ZNEO and provide the reader with a detailed explanation of how to develop programs that use the full capability of the microcontrollers. This is not intended to be a replacement for the Zilog product specification, but will serve as a companion to the Zilog documentation, providing the reader with many example programs. In fact, the most significant aspect of the book series will be the numerous, detailed, documented and explained C programs that demonstrate how to configure and use each and every feature of the ZNEO microcontroller.

Systems Programming

CSCI 3410 is a new George Washington University, Department of Computer Science course replacing Computer Architecture II (CSCI 3462). This course introduces students to many concepts underlying all computer systems and ties together the basic concepts from transistors though software development. Topics include: processor operation, hierarchical memory systems, micro-controller architecture, digital and analog data acquisition, actuation, and systems software development topics from the programmer's perspective such as compilers, linkers, operating systems, testing and debugging. The course uses embedded platforms to teach students how programs interact with and are constrained by hardware (with a little bit of “Basic Electronics” included so that the embedded systems part can be more easily understood).
