Synergies of Teaching Assembly and C in a Junior Microprocessors Course
Computers in Education Journal
As part of an effort to update its core computer engineering courses, Boise State University has developed course material to effectively transition students in a Microprocessors course through both the assembly and C languages. It was found that teaching both languages in the same course provides benefits not found in teaching them separately. The material has been developed to promote both a thorough understanding of microprocessors, and greater productivity that allows students to do more intriguing and relevant projects. The course presents just enough C, at a very low level and in a specific topic order, to enable the students to better comprehend microprocessors and how they can control a broad range of devices. The updated Microprocessors course is currently in its fourth iteration.
