Overview

123 PIC® MICROCONTROLLER EXPERIMENTS FOR THE EVIL GENIUS

123 STEPS FROM NEWBIE TO PIC PROGRAMMING GENIUS!

"Smart" house features and "smart" appliances, are just some of the multitude of inexpensive PIC micontroller projects created by PIC expert Myke Predko.

More than just hours of fun, these exciting experiments provide a solid grounding in PIC microcontrollers and the skills needed to program them — from the ground up. Each experiment builds on those before it, so you develop a hands-on, practical understanding of microcontroller programming. You don't need any knowledge of programming to get started. But by the end, you'll be able to complete your own awesome projects!

123 PIC Microcontroller Projects for the Evil Genius:

  • Introduces you to programming and customizing the PIC MCU step-by-step — you don't need to be a whiz to get started, but you will be when you are finished
  • Shows you how to set up your own PICmicro MCU (microcontroller) and development lab based on one inexpensive Microchip PICkit 1(R) starter kit
  • Vividly explains the science and electronics underlying microcontrollers
  • Gives you enjoyable step-by-step experiments that build your skills, one small increment at a time
  • Teaches you to program PICmicros in both C and assembly language
  • Shows you how to interface sensors, switches, LEDs, LCDs, and other commonly used electronic interfaces
  • Offers step-by-step experiments that develop handy resource routines in assembly language
  • Challenges you to stretch the limits of PIC MCU applications
  • Suggests exciting directions you can take your new programming skills
  • Supplies parts lists and program listings

    I absolutely loved this book.  I saw the comment about outdated

    I absolutely loved this book.  I saw the comment about outdated pic.  No big deal because not hard to figure out the new stuff.  Not only was learning the pic great but his approach to various things like servos,motor control, displays, was all super useful.

    DO NOT BUY

    This is filled with errors using an old style microchip. The lessons would have been useful had they worked at all. This will only serve to frustrate you and possible turn you away from working and having fun using microchips. Go to microchip and buy a 16F690 and read the datasheet. Have fun. But not with this book.
