Designing Embedded Systems with PIC Microcontrollers: Principles and Applications (英語) ペーパーバック – イラスト付き, 2009/12/3
Tim Wilmshurst is the author of Designing Embedded Systems with PIC Microcontrollers. He has been designing embedded systems since the early days of microcontrollers. For many years this was for Cambridge University, where he led a development team building original systems for research applications – for example in measurement of bullet speed, wind tunnel control, simulated earthquakes, or seeking a cure to snoring. Now he is Head of Electronic Systems at the University of Derby, where he aims to share his love of engineering design with his students.

The book first seems an unwieldy tome, and at times I found it heavy going. As a newcomer, I needed an introduction to the 16F84 PIC microcontroller, with which to handle the signalling for a specialised timer I designed. Tim Wilmshurst's knowledge of microcontrollers and programming is incredible and extensive and includes a good introduction to this chip. I succeeded in writing the draft program after much head scratching, and then discovered to my horror that the programming and debugging hardware and serial port adaptations required for the 16F84 series are almost-obsolete or discontinued equipment... so it was back to the tome to upgrade to the newer 16F628A chip and to rewrite my program. This is not a book for beginners, and the learning curve is steep. The second edition copy I purchased does not sufficiently warn or inform the beginner or the unwary of the electronic tools and additional board modules that are needed or not needed to program the many beasties that are available. Certainly this is a good, well written reference book for the enlightened experimenter, but beginner beware.

An excellent book for those who want to go further, as others have said this not for beginners but that is refreshing as beginners sections can be a large part of a book and that is waist after you have learnt to program the pics. This gives all the info to create a full system the main goal for an embedded system, stop using demo boards and learn to interface with the real world.
