Microcontrol n Apps
 
"Microcontrol'n Apps" is an intermediate level applications guide covering Microchip Technology's PIC Microcontrollers. Serial communication as a means of transferring data between PIC microcontrollers and peripheral chips and also between two or more PIC microcontrollers is described. A/D and D/A are discussed with several methods illustrated for each. Interfacing PIC microcontroller-controlled systems with humans requires some math, binary to decimal conversion and vice versa, alphanumeric LCD interfacing and scanning keypads. The book also explains how to establish serial communication between a PIC microcontroller and a PC via a RS-232 conversion circuit and a terminal program. These techniques are used in a digital voltmeter/data logger experiment for uploading data to a PC for display plus graphing using a spreadsheet program. Finally, use of the Microchip in-circuit debugger (ICD) is described. By David Benson (8-1/2 x 11 format, 437 pages)(BB023)

Time'n and Count'n
 
"Time'n and Count'n" is an intermediate level book on 16-bit timing and counting applications using Microchip Technology's PIC microcontrollers. More opportunities for creating fun projects are described. Learning to use timer 1 with it's powerful capture, compare and pulse width modulation modes will expand your PIC microcontroller design capabilities significantly. TMR1 is a 16-bit timer/counter. The maximum count is 65,535 vs. 255 for timer 0.TMR1 used in conjunction with the capture, compare, PWM module may be programmed to do useful things unattended leaving the PIC free to perform other tasks. A special pin may be used for external inputs to TMR1 and another special pin may be used as an external output from TMR1. These timing and counting techniques serve as the basis for designing and building your own period and frequency generating and measuring test equipment as described in the book. By David Benson (8-1/2 x 11 format, 218 pages). (BB024)

Serial Communications
 
"Serial Communications is a comprehensive advanced level book which details various methods for implementing serial communications between a Microchip PIC microcontroller and an external device. Asynchronous serial communications is covered both by using an on-chip USART and by bit-bang methods. The RS-232 standard is explained. A discussion of synchronous serial communications includes the I2C (Philips Semiconductors), SPI (Motorola) and Microwire (National Semiconductor) protocols. The Dallas Semiconductor 1-Wire bus is described. Many code examples are included as modules which will provide the basis for the reader's own PIC microcontroller applications. By Roger Stevens (8-1/2 x 11 format, 566 pages). (BB025)

C What Happens, Using PIC Microcontrollers and the CCS C Compiler
 
Closeout Item. Limited Qty Available.


"C What Happens Using PIC® Microcontrollers and the CCS C Compiler," contains a series of explanations and examples for those who want to learn to program PIC® microcontrollers using the C programming language. It is assumed that the reader has no knowledge of PIC microcontrollers or programming, but does have a rudimentary understanding of electronics. The reader will learn to create programs by making selections from a large variety of built-in functions provided in the CCS C compiler, writing his/her own functions as needed, and writing executable statements. The reader will 'C what happens' by programming a PIC® microcontroller with the newly created code and exercising it using a simple circuit described in the book. The subject matter is laid out in a logical progression from simple to not-so-simple and is illustrated with lots of examples. This book was written by David Benson (8-1/2 x 11", 183 pages. (BB237)

Mov'n Up, Migrating from the PIC® Microcontroller 16 Series to the 18 Series
 

Square 1 Electronics' latest new book, "Mov'n Up, Migrating from the PIC® Microcontroller 16 Series to the 18 Series,"  contains information on the 18 Series devices which have some features that make them easier to use. Program memory paging is gone, so tables may be of any length and may be located anywhere. Data memory bank selection is simplified. Compare, bit toggle and set file instructions make writing programs easier. Context saving on interrupt is automatic (sometimes). The newer application peripherals (CAN bus, etc.) are in the 18 Series devices. "Mov'n Up" will save you a lot of time by providing an explanation of the fundamental differences (vs. 16 Series), along with programming examples, to make the transition easier. The complete table of contents follows:

Please note: This book is not available in bookstores.

This book was written by David Benson (8-1/2 x 11" comb-bound, 107 pages, $24.95). David is also the author of "Easy Microcontrol'n" (formerly "Easy PIC'n"), "Microcontrol'n Apps" (formerly "PIC'n Up the Pace"), and "Time'n and Count'n" (formerly, "PIC'n Techniques"), which are books instructing people on how to use Microchip's PIC® microcontrollers by programming them using assembly language.

Getting Started with PICs 2006
 
In the January 2006 Nuts & Volts Magazine, Chuck Hellebuyck started a column titled “Getting Started with PICs” that focused on the beginner. It became a popular column and continues in Nuts & Volts Magazine today. Many readers missed the early columns so this book contains the original 2006 articles compiled into a book for easy reference. The list below describes the columns covered in this collection of Chuck’s articles.

Programming the Basic Atom Microcontroller
 

This is the only book written that covers the Basic Atom modules and chips. The Basic Atom is a Microchip PIC Microcontroller with a custom self programming bootloader installed. The Atom BASIC compiler is a real compiler not an interpreter and is free to download. The Atom BASIC compiler offers all the features of the PIC16F876A and PIC16F877A thru simple embedded BASIC commands. Many times faster than a Parallax Basic Stamp and a great first step to the world of Embedded BASIC programming. You can program modules or just the individual chip. Chuck's book covers it all with 13 projects and details onthe inner workings of the Atom.
