This book on PIC Microcontroller is intended primarily for undergraduate students in technology and engineering curriculum and also for practicing engineers who are working in embedded systems. It is a comprehensive treatment of the microcontroller fundamentals that includes architecture, assembly language programming, and applications of microcontrollers in embedded systems. Microchip PIC18F microcontroller families are used in the illustrations. This book assumes a course in digital logic as a prerequisite; however, it does not assume any background in programming.
The purpose of this book on PIC Microcontroller is threefold: one is to teach the basic principles underlying the microprocessor/microcontroller and its applications; the second is to teach assembly language; and the third is to expose students to the latest technology that is used in industry. These three objectives can be accomplished by using the PIC18F microcontroller as an illustration. This book is aimed at two levels: an introductory course in microcontrollers and an advanced course in designing microcontroller-based systems.
Features of the Text:
1. Comprehensive Integrated Approach to Hardware and Software. The book is divided in three sections and the content is comprehensive: basic concepts in hardware, assembly language, and integration of hardware and software in interfacing peripherals and designing an embedded system.
2. Organization Appropriate to Teaching
Most microprocessor courses are laboratory oriented. Initially, this textbook covers enough hardware architecture essentials to prepare students to write programs; students will be able to write simple programs beginning with Chapter 2. When students are able to write programs, the textbook returns to hardware topics.
3. Step-By-Step Approach for Software
Students are exposed to programming in a systematic way. This is the area where students need assistance. Often students enter this type of course with no programming background. The text has been designed to supply that needed support. The programming section includes numerous illustrative examples. These examples begin with a problem statement, provide the analysis of the problem, illustrate the program, and explain the programming steps. Chapters 5 through 8 differ from any available texts, and are the major strength of the book. Instructions are explained in detail through the use of examples, not just listed from the Microchip manual. Examples and explanations of instructions enhance students' understanding of programming. An instruction set with full explanation is essential in writing programs.
4. Text is laboratory oriented
This feature also reinforces the integral aspect of software with hardware. Chapters 5 through 8 can be used for laboratory experiences. The section includes illustrative programs that can be used to verify programming concepts on a simulator or single-board demo board.
5. In-Depth Treatment of I/O Interfacing.
Chapters 9 through 13 are devoted to I/O interfacing and various peripherals. Illustrative examples in these chapters can be used in laboratory to perform hardware experiments.
6. Synthesis of the Concepts through Project Design
Chapter 14 is concerned with the design of a temperature control and display project that synthesizes all the concepts discussed in earlier chapters.
7. Appendices include details of software for laboratory experiments.
MPLAB IDE, an integrated software package that includes an assembler, a debugger, and a simulation program, is available from Microchip. Students can use the source code included on the CD in laboratory experiments.
