Jack Smith “Programming the PIC Microcontroller with MBASIC”
Publisher: Newnes | Pages: 800 | 2005-06-14 | ISBN:0750679468 | PDF | 12,3 Mb
The Microchip PIC family of microcontrollers is the most popular series of microcontrollers in the world. However, no microcontroller is of any use without software to make it perform useful functions. This comprehensive reference focuses on designing with Microchips mid-range PIC line using MBASIC, a powerful but easy to learn programming language. It illustrates MBASICs abilities through a series of design examples, beginning with simple PIC-based projects and proceeding through more advanced designs. Unlike other references however, it also covers essential hardware and software design fundamentals of the PIC microcontroller series, including programming in assembly language when needed to supplement the capabilities of MBASIC. Details of hardware/software interfacing to the PIC are also provided.
Creed Huddleston, “Intelligent Sensor Design Using the Microchip dsPIC”
Newnes; Pap/Cdr edition (December 11, 2006) | ISBN:0750677554 | 304 pages | PDF | 3,1 Mb
Intelligent seonsors are revolutionizing the world of system design in everything from sports cars to assembly lines. These new sensors have abilities that leave their predecessors in the dust! They not only measure parameters efficiently and precisely, but they also have the ability to enhance and interupt those measurements, thereby transformng raw data into truly useful information.
Unlike many embedded systems books that confine themselves strictly to firmware and software, this book also delves into the supporting electronic hardware, providing the reader with a complete understanding of the issues involved when interfacing to specific types of sensor and offering insight into the real-world problems designers will face. Meaningful software examples are implemented in both C and assembly language, and the source code is included on the accompanying CD. The examples provide a complete, easily extensible code framework for sensor-based applications as well as basic support routines that are often ignored or treated superficially. The goal throughout is to make readers truly productive as quickly as possible while providing the thorough understanding necessary to design robust systems.
Readers will gain in-depth, real-world design information that will help them be more productive and get up to speed on sensor design skills more quickly. The book provides designers and students a leg up in a relatively new design area, imparting knowledge about a new microcontroller that offers some of the functionality of a DSP chip.
· Quickly teaches the reader to design the new wave in sensor technology, “intelligent” sensors
· In-depth design techniques, real-world examples, detailed figures and usable code
· Application chapters thoroughly exploring temperature, pressure and load, and flow sensors
· A FREE CD that provides a toolkit of software models in both C and assembly language
