The book includes many source code listings, circuit schematics and hardware block diagrams. It describes the internal hardware of 8-bit PIC microcontroller, outlines the development systems available to write and test C programs, and shows how to use CCS C to create PIC firmware. In addition, simple interfacing principles are explained, a demonstration program for the PIC mechatronics development board provided and some typical applications outlined.*Focuses on the C programming language which is by far the most popular for microcontrollers (MCUs)
Harness the power of the PIC microcontroller unit with practical, common-sense instruction from an engineering expert. Through eight real-world projects, clear illustrations, and detailed schematics, Making PIC Microcontroller Instruments and Controllers shows you, step-by-step, how to design and build versatile PIC-based devices. Configure all necessary hardware and software, read input voltages, work with control pulses, interface with peripherals, and debug your results. You'll also get valuable appendices covering technical terms, abbreviations, and a list of sample programs available online.Build a tachometer that gathers, processes, and displays data Make accurate metronomes using internal PIC timers Construct an asynchronous pulse counter that tracks marbles Read temperature information through an analog-to-digital converter Use a gravity sensor and servos to control the position of a table Assemble an eight-point touch screen with an input scanning routine Engineer an adjustable, programmable single-point controller Capture, log, monitor, and store data from a solar collector
The architecture of the PIC 18FXXX series as well as typical oscillator, reset, memory, and input-output circuits is completely detailed. After giving an introduction to programming in C, the book describes the project development cycle in full, giving details of the process of editing, compilation, error handling, programming and the use of specific development tools. The bulk of the book gives full details of tried and tested hands-on projects, such as the 12C BUS, USB BUS, CAN BUS, SPI BUS and real-time operating systems.A clear introduction to the PIC 18FXXX microcontroller's architecture20 projects, including developing wireless and sensor network applications, using I2C BUS, USB BUS, CAN BUS and the SPI BUS, which give the block and circuit diagram, program description in PDL, program listing and program descriptionNumerous examples of using developmental tools: simulators, in-circuit debuggers (especially ICD2) and emulators
