Learn the language of Microcontrollers…
Microcontrollers control virtually everything we use in our everyday lives, from microwave ovens, remote controls, heating thermostats, entertainment systems, and clocks, to electronic tooth brushes. In recent years radio amateurs have become interested in the extraordinary potential of microcontrollers as tools in everything from station accessories to transceivers. As a result, they’re eager to learn how to program these devices and actively put them to work.
ARRL’s PIC Programming for Beginners is an introductory guide to understanding PIC design and development. Written in a building block approach, this book provides readers a strong foundation on the subject. As you explore the potential of these powerful devices, you’ll find that working with PICs is simple, educational and most importantly fun.
CD-ROM included with programming resources, supplementary reading, short video clips and other helpful data.
Please Note: The book is based on a limited vocabulary of the 35 instruction set in assembly language that is recognized by Microchip’s MPASM™ Assembler. The programming language used in the book is assembly language.
