PIC Projects and Applications Using C details how to program the PIC microcontroller in the C language. The book takes a learn-by-doing approach, with applications covering topics such as inputs, outputs, keypads, alphanumeric displays, analogue-to-digital conversion, radio transmitters and receivers, data EEPROM, interrupts and timing. To aid debugging, the book provides a section detailing the use of the simulator and in-circuit debugger.
With this book you will learn:
How to program the PIC microcontroller in C
Techniques for using the simulator and debuggers to find faults on your code
