PIC microcontrollers are used worldwide in commercial and industrial devices. The 8-bit PIC which this book focuses on is a versatile work horse that completes many designs. An engineer working with applications that include a microcontroller will no doubt come across the PIC sooner rather than later. It is a must to have a working knowledge of this 8-bit technology.
This book takes the novice from introduction of embedded systems through to advanced development techniques for utilizing and optimizing the PIC family of microcontrollers in your device. To truly understand the PIC, assembly and C programming language must be understood. The author explains both with sample code and examples, and makes the transition from the former to the latter an easy one. This is a solid building block for future PIC endeavors.
New to the 2nd Edition:
*Include end of chapter questions/activities moving from introductory to advanced
*More worked examples
*Includes PowerPoint slides for instructors
*Includes all code snips on a companion web site for ease of use
*A survey of 16/32-bit PICs
*A project using ZigBee
- Covers both assembly and C programming languages, essential for optimizing the PIC
- Amazing breadth of coverage moving from introductory to advanced topics covering more and more complex microcontroller families
- Details MPLAB and other Microchip design tools
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.
It is a no-nonsense reference that cuts to the chase. I have been using assembler for 10 years and still found the assembler portion of the book very informative. The reason I purchased the book however is to start moving over to C. For this too, the book is really helpful and explains all the things I previously didn't understand (and typically ignored) when it comes to header files, object files, libraries, compilers, linkers, RTOS etc. Congratulations to Tim Wilmshurst on an excellent book.
