Recommended Books: 1. Assembly Language for Intel Based Computers (Kip R. Irvine) 2. Assembly Language Programming and Organization for IBM PC (Ytha Yu) Reference Books: 1. Art of Assembly Language Programming (Randall Hyde) 2. Intels Microprocessors (Barry B. Brey) 1. 2. Recommended Websites: Software and Utilities: Turbo Debugger 5.0, MASM 6.13, TASM & TLINK Course Objective: To introduce the students to low level programming of the Intel IA-32 processors. The main focus of this course will be the programming methodology, showing how to use assembly language to create both system level software tools and application programs. Computer hardware manipulation and interaction between assembly language programs, the operating system, and other application programs, will be taught during the course. Course Pre-requisites 1.
