Programming 16-Bit PIC Microcontrollers in C: Learning to Fly the PIC 24by Lucio Di Jasio
Synopses & Reviews
The 16-bit PIC24 series provides embedded programmers with more speed, more memory, and more peripherals than ever before, creating the potential for more powerful cutting-edge PIC designs. This book teaches you everything you need to know about these chips: how to program them, how to test them, and how to debug them, in order to take full advantage of the capabilities of the latest PIC24 microcontroller architecture. Author Lucio Di Jasio, a PIC expert at Microchip, offers unique insight into this market leading microcontroller, guiding the reader step-by-step from 16-bit architecture basics, through to sophisticated programming scenarios. This book's common-sense, practical, hands-on approach begins simply and builds up to more challenging exercises, using proven C programming techniques, providing a valuable primer on embedded C coding along the way. Experienced PIC users and newcomers to the field alike will benefit from the text's many thorough examples, which demonstrate how to nimbly side-step common obstacles, solve real-world design problems efficiently, and optimize code for all the new PIC24 features. You will learn about: - basic timing and I/O operations, - multitasking using the PIC24 interrupts, - all the new hardware peripherals - how to control LCD displays, - generating audio and video signals, - accessing mass-storage media, - how to share files on a mass-storage device with a PC, - experimenting with the Explorer 16 demo board, debugging methods with MPLAB-SIM and ICD2 tools, and more
-A Microchip insider tells all on the PIC24 series, in the only official and complete book dedicated to the needs of 16-bit PIC24 users -Fills in the gaps and ambiguities of product datasheets, and focuses on examples and exercises that show how to solve common, real-world PIC design problems quickly -Includes handy checklists to help readers perform the most common programming and debugging tasks
Developed in conjunction with Microchip, get the low down on making the PIC24 fly!
New in the second edition:
* MPLAB X support and MPLAB C for the PIC24F v3 and later libraries
* I2C™ interface
* 100% assembly free solutions
* Improved video, PAL/NTSC
* Improved audio, RIFF files decoding
* PIC24F GA1, GA2, GB1 and GB2 support
Most readers will associate Microchip's name with the ubiquitous 8-bit PIC microcontrollers but it is the new 16-bit PIC24F family that is truly stealing the scene. Orders of magnitude increases of performance, memory size and the rich peripheral set make programming these devices in C a must. This new guide by Microchip insider Lucio Di Jasio teaches readers everything they need to know about the architecture of these new chips: How to program them, how to test them, and how to debug them. Di Jasio’s common-sense, practical, hands-on approach starts out with basic functions and guides the reader step-by-step through even the most sophisticated programming scenarios. Experienced PIC users, including embedded engineers, programmers, designers, and SW and HW engineers, and new comers alike will benefit from the text’s many thorough examples, which demonstrate how to nimbly sidestep common obstacles and take full advantage of the many new features.
* A Microchip insider introduces you to 16-bit PIC programming the easy way! * Condenses typical introductory "fluff" focusing instead on examples and exercises that show how to solve common, real-world design problems quickly * Includes handy checklists to help readers perform the most common programming and debugging tasks
