Abstract

Two candidate microprocessors are selected to demonstrate that microprocessors can be effectively utilized in digital control applications. The Intel 8085A-2 is selected to represent 8-bit microprocessors and the Intel 8086 is selected to represent 16-bit. A baseline second order digital filter algorithm is developed for comparison of the performance of the two microprocessors for both software and hardware multiply implementations. Emulation techniques are utilized to facilitate performance comparison, without large investments in software and hardware development. In addition, they provide a method for evaluating new microprocessors, before hardware becomes available. The emulations are then used to verify and to determine the sampling frequency realizable with each digital filter implementation.
