Features

  • Provides downloadable software, including tools, resources, supplementary materials, and code listing
  • Includes sample circuits with their corresponding programs, as well as tested PCB files
  • Focus on the popular embedded systems with PIC18 series microcontrollers and dsPIC digital signal processors
  • Contains an appendix with a C language tutorial, PIC18 instruction set, links to useful tools and software, and PCB files
  • Supplies sample circuits that are not copyrighted or patented, so readers can freely use them in their own applications
  • Covers selected topics and examples that provide solutions to problems that practicing engineers may encounter and that are not readily found in the literature

Summary

Focusing on the line of high-performance microcontrollers offered by Microchip, Microcontrollers: High-Performance Systems and Programming discusses the practical factors that make the high-performance PIC series a better choice than their mid-range predecessors for most systems. However, one consideration in favor of the mid-range devices is the abundance of published application circuits and code samples. This book fills that gap.

  • Possibility of programming high-performance microcontrollers in a high-level language (C language)
  • Source code compatibility with PIC16 microcontrollers, which facilitates code migration from mid-range to PIC18 devices
  • Pin compatibility of some PIC18 devices with their PIC16 predecessors, making the reuse of PIC16 controllers in circuits originally designed for mid-range hardware possible

Designed to be functional and hands-on, this book provides sample circuits with their corresponding programs. It clearly depicts and labels the circuits, in a way that is easy to follow and reuse. Each circuit includes a parts list of the resources and components required for its fabrication. The book matches sample programs to the individual circuits, discusses general programming techniques, and includes appendices with useful information.
