Learning Machine Code with 8-bit Microcontrollers

To understand deeply in processor architecture, we have to learn the Machine Code. I decide to select the 8051 microcontroller as a microprocessor model. A microcontroller (or MCU) is a computer-on-a-chip. They integrate many modules on one chip such as RAM, Flash memory, EEPROM, serial ports (UARTs), I²C, Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI), analog-to-digital converters (ADC), clock generator (XTAL) and more.
