John Peatman's latest microcontroller work focuses on Microchip Technology's PIC18FXXX family, and its newest member, the PIC18F452. The enhanced instruction set and addressing modes simplify program code development, and the on-chip resources make this the most powerful PIC microcontroller ever.
Its flash program memory and built-in background debug mode provide internal programming/debugging support of program development. The presentation style throughout this book is to introduce the reader to simple programs that encompass features of the PIC18F452, plus interactions with I/0 devices, providing the reader with a smooth and quick learning process for creatively writing enhanced application code. Hundreds of figures give visual support to the text. Examples, end-of-chapter problems, suggested lab projects, complete designs, plus a QwikFlash development board support a "learning by doing" environment.
