    Excellent Introduction to the Motorola 68HC11

    Tom Fox has created an excellent book on the Motorola 68HC11. His book is designed to build your knowledge up from the beginning and end up with you being able to develop your own HC11 Applications. What I liked most about the book was Tom's explaining about the tools and resources avaiable for the HC11.

    Fine Introduction to the HC11 Microcontroller

    Tom Fox's book takes you on a grand tour of the 68HC11 microcontroller. He begins with the simplest idea of what a computer is and ends with several applications of this particular family of microcontrollers. This is not your PC that is being examined here, but rather a single chip computer (well OK, most applications will probably require a few additional ones). The 68HC11 family is one of the latest of Motorola's line of microcontrollers that started with the 6800 about 25 years ago. You don't need to be an engineer or technician to tackle this book, but you will need some basic background. To build any of the project boards some printed circuit board soldering and component identification skills are required. This is not a Heathkit, with detailed, illustrated assembly instructions. However the author does provide some insight and well thought out testing procedures. What makes any computer useful are the software programs. The author provides the ones needed for the exercises and applications that are in the book, but the point is to have the reader come up with the ones needed for other applications. These programs are written in assembly language, which is much simpler than it sounds. Tom Fox explains the basics of the language and provides a listing of the Instruction Set (the commands that tell the 68HC11 what to do). Anyone who has written simple BASIC language programs should have no problem. The book and accompanying CD ROM have some of the supporting documentation and the author gives a lot of information on how to obtain more. Searching the Internet for additional information can be a great learning experience in itself. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested applying microcontrollers to solve control problems.
