Overview

John Morton offers a uniquely concise and practical guide to getting up and running with the PIC Microcontroller. The PIC is one of the most popular of the microcontrollers that are transforming electronic project work and product design, and this book is the ideal introduction for students, teachers, technicians and electronics enthusiasts.

Assuming no prior knowledge of microcontrollers and introducing the PICs capabilities through simple projects, this book is ideal for use in schools and colleges. The step-by-step explanations make it ideal for self-study too: this is not a reference book – you start work with the PIC straight away.


The revised second edition covers the popular reprogrammable EEPROM PICs: P16C84/P16F84 as well as the P54 and P71 families.

Demystifies the leading microcontroller for students and technicians
Emphasis on putting the PIC to work, not theoretical microelectronics
A practical introduction to the world of microcontrollers

Audience: All newcomers to the PIC microcontroller: students, electronics enthusiasts and technician engineers. Ideal for college and high school electronics project work.
