13. Conclusions


After working on the project for quit a while and achieving most of the goals, I am pleased with the attained success and the challenges overcame in meeting the project objectives. In this project, I was able to incorporate the Z80 microprocessor with externally built hardware and make it perform to specification. The project provided me with a strong background for similar tasks I might undertake in the field of microprocessor in the future. I was able to place myself in an almost real situation of electronic product design and implementation and learn the steps involved in such a process. Specific to my project, I was able to prove that the idea of fetching the telephone number and associate timing function scenario I have described in the previous sections, are quite feasible


I learned that various problems can occur when interfacing the Z80 with a hardware setup. In my case, timing was a very critical factor. However, the Z80 can handle these time intensive applications if provided with a suitable external hardware.
