The study aimed to design microcomputer systems with a Random Access Memory (RAM), Read - Only Memory (ROM), and Input/output (I/O) devices to create a working microcomputer. The system could measure the speed of the wind, performed speed conversion and displayed the speed value conversion and display the speed value on the seven-segment display.

Experimental development and descriptive approaches were the methods used. Ten purposively chosen evaluators were asked to participate in the assessment of the device's functionality.

Findings revealed that the device was capable of measuring the speed of the wind through the rotational power of the shaft caused by the wind and was satisfactory in automation and operation.
