And perhaps evenMoreIf you come into contact with microprocessors... you often find you would like data information on a specific microcircuit element. Specifications apart, you may be even more interested in where you can get the device in question. And perhaps even more important still (particularly with obsolete devices), you may be looking for guidance on a readily available second source or possible substitute. This microprocessor selector... is designed to provide in one handy reference volume a comprehensive body of readily accessible, user-slanted essential information across the field of microprocessors. In the data tabulations will be found set out the essential basic specifications of over 7,000 commercially-available microprocessor chips, including not only the microprocessor elements themselves (e.g. MPUs and CPUs) but also the many other LSI support circuits (e.g. ROMs, RAMs, PROMs, clocks, UARTs, I/Os) normally used in harness with the microprocessors proper... For ease of reference, the descriptions and control specifications of the individual circuits are set out in the detailed data tables on separate single lines, arranged in alpha-numeric order by type number. For the newcomer to the very new field of microprocessors, the selector includes a full introductory note on these devices before the data tables. Besides this, the tables are supplemented by separate appendices giving additional information on: (a) Microprocessor chip applications (and codings)- (b) Microprocessor families- (c) Microprocessor LSI chip manufacturers (and codings)- (d) Semiconductor LSI technologies (and codings)- (e) Microprocessor chip packages land codings)- (f) Microprocessor trainer and development systems- (g) Microprocessor bibliography- (h) Manufacturers house codes- (i) Glossary of microprocessor terms: (j) Explanatory notes to tabulations. Microprocessors became commercially available only from the early 1970s, and it is difficult to keep pace...
