What is a Microcontroller (PDF 126p)
Most of us know what a computer looks like. It usually has a keyboard, monitor, CPU (Central Processing Unit), printer, and a
mouse. These types of computers, like the Mac or PC, are primarily designed to communicate (or interface) with humans.
Introduction to Microcontrollers Lecture Notes (PDF 134)
A microcontroller is essentially a microprocessor with several other features embedded onto a single chip.
What is a Microcontroller Student Guide (PDF 340p)
This text is organized so that it can be used by the widest possible variety of students as well as independent learners. Middle school students can try the examples in this text in a guided tour fashion by simply following the check-marked instructions and instructor supervision.
Microcontroller Interfacing Circuits (PDF 44p)
Explanations of BASIC commands are provided in the Commands section (available separately). The interfacing circuits can also be used with any PIC microcontrollers such as the PIC16F84, although these microcontrollers may require
programming in assembler code.
Microcontroller Usage (PDF 32p)
A microcontroller is a computer on a chip used to control electronic devices. It is a type of microprocessor emphasizing self-sufficiency and costeffectiveness, in contrast to a general-purpose microprocessor, the kind used in a PC.
Architecture and Programming of 8051 Microcontrollers
Learn in a quick and easy way how to program 8051 microcontrollers using many practical examples we have provided for you. In spite of the fact that they are relatively old, 8051 microcontrollers are still very popular and commonly used nowadays. In addition to Intel, many other renowned companies, such as Philips,Siemens, etc, are manufacturing this model.

Some notes on Microcontroller.
Microcontroller Basics (PDF Slides 46p)
A microcontroller is a small, low-cost computer-on-a-chip which usually includes:
An 8 or 16 bit microprocessor (CPU).
A small amount of RAM.
Programmable ROM and/or flash memory.
Parallel and/or serial I/O.
Timers and signal generators.
Analog to Digital (A/D) and/or Digital to Analog (D/A) conversion.
The situation we find ourselves today in the field of microcontrollers had its beginnings in the development of technology of integrated circuits. This development has enabled us to store hundreds of thousands of transistors into one chip. That was a precondition for the manufacture of microprocessors. The first computers were made by adding external peripherals such as memory, input/output lines, timers and others to it. Further increasing of package density resulted in creating an integrated circuit which contained both processor and peripherals. That is how the first chip containing a microcomputer later known as a microcontroller has developed.
