The microprocessor is the heart of many automated devices in use at the present time. These microprocessors are used mainly in devices where repeated and rapid rates of calculations are required. To achieve' rapid rates of calculation, the microprocessor is programmed directly in machine or assembly language. This paper presents the results of work done in programming a microprocessor in the Assembly programming language to calculate iso-kinetic sampling rates in a dust sampling train. The accuracies of the calculation are examined by comparing the results of the calculations with those obtained when using a mainframe computer. The results show that the accuracy of the calculations is within -4.5 %and +2.5%
