I am hoping to find some old geezers that might have a copy of "Embedded Microcontrollers & Processors Handbook" Intel Order # 270645
and "16 Bit Embedded Microcontrollers Handbook Intel Order # 270640. I and currently working a project on an MCS96 based 80C196KD model microcontroller. I have the User's Guide which is informational but I still need some insight from an Embedded Controller Developer to get me off the starting line. For example, when do I use vertical-window scheme, when do I not use it. Do the hardware engineers tell me where to read and write memory? How do I determine the best usage of internal memory, external memory? When would I use one or the other? As I am programming do I need the controller schematic to understand the pins, interrupts, etc? How do I write a program to download the *.hex file in to OTOProm etc, etc, etc...
Welcome to the Intel® Embedded Community.
I see that it's been a couple days since your post and no "old geezers" have come to your rescue. This might be overly simple, but have you tried to google the title of that manual? I know there's a bunch of websites out there that store old archvied manuals, specs, datasheets, etc. Some are free and others charge a nominal fee. Below are a few examples. Maybe these are docs you already have but I thought it might be worth taking a shot if you haven't already.
I hope this helps.
