Assuming no prior knowledge of microcontrollers and introducing the PIC Microcontroller's capabilities through simple projects, this book is ideal for electronics hobbyists, students, school pupils and technicians. The step-by-step explanations and the useful projects make it ideal for student and pupil self-study: this is not just a reference book - you start work with the PIC microcontroller straight away.
The revised third edition focuses entirely on the re-programmable flash PIC microcontrollers such as the PIC16F54, PIC16F84 and the extraordinary 8-pin PIC12F508 and PIC12F675 devices.Demystifies the leading microcontroller for students, engineers an hobbyistsEmphasis on putting the PIC to work, not theoretical microelectronicsSimple programs and circuits introduce key features and commands through project work
This book Includes over fifty projects which are divided into three categories: Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced.
