This article is a primer and general FAQ about embedded processors and
microcontrollers. Included is a collection of information sources.
Designing for Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) with HCMOS Microcontrollers (PDF)
The operating speed of present high-density complementary metal
oxide semiconductor (HCMOS) devices is approaching that of the fastest bipolar logic families of only a few years ago.
Data Structures for 8 Bit Microcontrollers (PDF 32p)
A data structure describes how information is organized and stored in a computer system. Although data structures are usually presented in the context of large computers, the same principles can be applied to
embedded 8-bit processors
Implementing a FLASH Memory System in an MC68HC711E9 Design(PDF 36p)
FLASH technology offers several advantages to a M68HC11 microcontroller design. Field updates, lower-power consumption, and increased memory densities are but a few of the potential benefits of incorporating external FLASH memory as a firmware/data media.
M68HC11 Reference Manual (PDF 640p)
This reference manual is a valuable aid in the development of M68HC11
applications. Detailed descriptions of all internal subsystems and
functions have been developed and carefully checked against internal
Freescale design documentation, making this manual the most
comprehensive reference available for the M68HC11 Family of
microcontroller units (MCU).

THE PIC COURSE
The only way to create a business out of programming is to invent another language and charge for it.
That's exactly what has been done with BASIC. A clever programmer has produced a set of routines and placed them in a chip. These routines cannot be viewed and you can only stand back and use them "at arm's length". It's a bit like inventing a new language consisting of a single word to represent a sentence and suggesting it is better than learning the individual words.
