ECE 395 - Microprocessor Laboratory

It is the objective of this laboratory to give the students the opportunity to acquire some hands-on experience with microprocessors. To this end the students are required to construct a single board computer (SBC) as explained in the laboratory manual. The following resources are intended to aid the students in this project. Many of the files linked to on these pages are in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. To view these files it is necessary to download and install Adobe Acrobat Reader.
