Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have a question related to the assembly language. But its not really related to programming. Its related to the high and low states of the pins in some specific clock cycles or time cycles in the 8086 processor. Should such questions be asked on SO or programmers? Or shouldn't they be asked at all?

If it's a how question, the Stack Overflow. If it's a why question, then Programmers.SE. There's also Electrical Engineering, which explicitly welcomes questions about electronics and "bare-metal" applications.

The how/why distinction is extremely important. Keep SO concrete! – Josh Caswell Aug 14 '12 at 3:49

I would try the site, it sounds like the best fit.
