February 1979 (vol. 12 no. 2)
pp. 9
B.L. Peuto, Zilog, Inc.
After eight years, microprocessors are finally growing up. Those generally available since their introduction in 1971 have been technological marvels, but, by and large, architectural oddities. A combination of complexity limitations and designer inexperience resulted in chips which could execute instructions, but which were difficult to interface and frustrating to program when used as general-purpose computers.
