In this â€œVolume 2â€ Chuck takes the reader to the next level by introducing how to drive displays, how to use interrupts, how to use serial communication, how to use the internal hardware peripherals of the PIC16F690 Microcontroller such as SPI, PWM and Timers. He even introduces how to drive a stepper motor for those looking for electromechanical design help. He tackles these topics with his typical down to earth style of writing that makes the reader comfortable as they learn what some consider very difficult topics for the beginner. In addition he continues to use the very powerful HI-TECH C compiler in its free Lite mode so the reader can program along with little or no expense.
All the projects in the book include the software and the hardware schematics so the reader can reproduce the same projects Chuck creates on their own. This is a great companion to the â€œBeginnerâ€™s Guide to Embedded C Programmingâ€ but also stands well on its own. If you are looking to learn Embedded C Programming for the Microchip PIC Microcontroller or want to expand your knowledge of using the internal features, then this book needs to be in your library.
