Programming PIC Microcontrollers with PICBASIC
This book was written back in 1998 and is still one of the most popular Microchip PIC books on the market. Chuck covers both the PICBASIC and PICBASIC PRO compilers as he shows you through project examples how to get started programming in embedded BASIC.
This book has sold thousands of copies and the reader feedback has been nothing but positive. There have since been other books written on PICBASIC and PICBASIC PRO but this is still the most desired book for the embedded BASIC crowd.
The PICBASIC and PICBASIC PRO compilers offer much higher speed programming on par with many of the popular C compilers but still give you the simplicity of the BASIC language.
Beginner's Guide to Embedded C Programming
Through his down to earth style of writing Chuck Hellebuyck delivers a step by step introduction to learning how to program microcontrollers with the C language. In addition he uses a powerful C compiler that the reader can download for free in a series of hands on projects with sample code so you can learn right along with him.
There isn’t a better entry level guide to learning embedded C programming than the Beginner’s Guide to Embedded C Programming. When you have finished reading this book and completed the projects you’ll be ready to take on your own embedded microcontroller projects and designs using the C language.
You will learn about:
* C Language Structure
* C language statements
* Linking multiple C files
* How to control outputs
* How to read inputs
* How to read an analog voltage with an Analog to Digital Converter
* MPLAB© Integrated Development Environment setup and operation
* PIC16F690 microcontroller register and configuration setup
* And more!
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.
Getting Started with PICs
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.
