Show synopsis Microcontrollers are found everywhere: Microwave ovens, coffee makers, telephones, cars, toys, TVs, washers and dryers - the list is endless. This book will bring information to the reader on how to understand, repair, or design a device incorporating a microcontroller. The Microcontroller Beginner's Handbook examines all elements of microcontroller use, including such industrial considerations as price vs. performance and firmware. A wide variety of third-party development tools is also covered, both hardware and software, with emphasis placed on new project design. The book not only teaches readers with a basic knowledge of electronics how to design microcontroller projects, it greatly enhances the reader's ability to repair such devices. There are even many ideas and hints for an experienced microcontroller user. When done, the reader will be able to design, write, and build a new project utilizing a microcontroller. The Microcontroller Beginner's Handbook includes: What is a Microcontroller? Binary and Boolean Logic Bits and Bytes Analog to Digital-Digital to Analog The PIC Family of Microcontrollers PIC Firmware First Project: Lights, Action! The RS232 Terminal AC Motor Control A Telephone Busy Buster A Video Output Thermometer Practical Design Consideration This edition includes a CD-ROM with source code examples from the book, sample assemblers, and over 4,500 pages of data sheets.
