FREE CDROM includes source code in C, the Microchip C30 compliler, MPLAB SIM software, so that readers gain practical, hands-on programming experience.
Until recently, PICs didn’t have the speed and memory necessary for use in designs such as video- and audio-enabled devices. All that has changed with the introduction of the first-ever 16-bit PIC family, the PIC24. This new guide 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. Lucio’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 and newcomers alike will benefit from the text’s many thorough examples, which demonstrat how to nimbly side-step common obstacles and take full advantage of all the new features.
