View Full Version : 8085 Microprocessor.

The 8085 microprocessor is out dated and for new design no one uses it, except those who want 8085 based design for some specific reasons. But 8085 is still in our diploma/degree course. Whole year student practice and study 8085. So my question is, is it worth to take 8085 as a first microprocessor course. I think it is waste of time and money.
What other member think on it.

ALthough it is outdated, it is good for understanding computer architecture.
but yes not as a industry oriented course
However 8-bits are not dead yet!

If you can learn one CPU....you can manage any other in a short period of time...

the elements are mostly the same in any CPU.

its not a waste learning it.
u just need to know how to program one processor...
rest all u can learn easily then.
its easier to start off with 8bit systems...
and morever 8085 and 8086 based systems
are still considered very reliable....
