About this product


Product overview

• A practical guide for all newcomers to the PIC microcontroller• Discover micro electronics by building PIC circuits• Based on Manchester Metropolitan University’s highly successful short courses on the PIC

PIC in Practice is a graded course based around the practical use of the PIC microcontroller through project work. Principles are introduced gradually, through hands-on experience, enabling students to develop their understanding at their own pace.This book can be used at a variety of levels. The carefully graded practicals make it ideal for colleges and schools, many university students and professionals and also newcomers to PIC. In addition, electronics hobbyists will find this book an exciting introduction to the world of microcontrollers.PIC in Practice introduces applications using the popular 16F84 device and includes sections on the 16C711, 12C508, 16F87X and the latest 16F627 devices.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I vote this as the worst technical book ever! So full of errors in nearly every section. I am a newby to this lark and spent many many frustrating hours trying to figure out why the code would not run as expected. In the end I downloaded a free PIC simulator to sort this out. Considering this book has been revised several times and still has so many mistakes I guess most have given up at an early stage. Take a look at the internet forum comments from others before you buy. Does not go far enough really to get you beyond very basic fundamentals. Could do with some more useful sections on how to set up a serial interface for instance.
