Abstract:

Microprocessors, because of their small size, low cost, and versatility, are being considered for use in areas classically unrelated to Electrical Engineering. Thus, many persons untrained in electrical engineering principles must face the problem of microprocessor selection without the necessary background. The report presents a selection algorithm and the basic information required by this algorithm to allow the novice to grasp the concepts required of him during the selection process. In addition, the role of computers in creating a data base, and operating on this data base is discussed. Ideas for future work in the area are generated. Finally, material concerning where to find microsystem vendors, a bibliography of published material on microprocessors, microprocessor descriptions, and a glossary of commonly used terminology is included as appendices.
