The Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) of BRAC University organised a workshop on assembly language programming for students using 10 new 8086 microprocessor kits at UB71201 on Tuesday (5 February 2019).
A microprocessor is an integrated circuit that contains all the functions of a central processing unit of a computer.
The 8086 (also called iAPX 86) is a 16-bit microprocessor chip designed by Intel between early 1976 and June 8, 1978.
The 8086 gave rise to the x86 architecture, which eventually became Intel's most successful line of processors.
The 8086 kit is very user-friendly and self-contained, enhancing education, training, skills and development of young minds and allowing practical work and the gaining of knowledge about microprocessor based systems.
The workshop was jointly conducted by faculty members of department and experts of Advanced Technology Consortium Ltd.
