Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

*Just months after the introduction of the new generation of 32-bit PIC microcontrollers, a Microchip insider and acclaimed author takes you by hand at the exploration of the PIC32

*Companion website includes source code in C and the Microchip MPLAB C32 compiler

*Includes handy checklists to help readers perform the most common programming and debugging tasks

The new 32-bit microcontrollers bring the promise of more speed and more performance while offering an unprecedented level of compatibility with existing 8 and 16-bit PIC microcontrollers. In sixteen engaging chapters, using a parallel track to his previous title dedicated to 16-bit programming, the author puts all these claims to test while offering a gradual introduction to the development and debugging of embedded control applications in C.
Author Lucio Di Jasio, a PIC and embedded control expert, offers unique insight into the new 32-bit architecture while developing a number of projects of growing complexity.
Experienced PIC users and newcomers to the field alike will benefit from the text's many thorough examples which demonstrate how to nimbly side-step common obstacles, solve real-world design problems efficiently and optimize code using the new PIC32 features and peripheral set.

You will learn about:
*basic timing and I/O operation
*debugging methods with the MPLAB SIM *simulator and ICD tools
*multitasking using the PIC32 interrupts
*all the new hardware peripherals
*how to control LCD displays
*experimenting with the Explorer16 board and *the PIC32 Starter Kit
*accessing mass-storage media
*generating audio and video signals
*and more!

If you want to learn the PIC32, the is THE book to get.

For anyone familiar with any of the PIC line: PIC16, PIC18, PIC24 or dsPIC, this book makes learning the PIC32 a snap. After reading the book I was able to port an entire suite of my PIC24 apps over to the PIC32 in a matter of hours. This book makes moving from any of the other PICs to the PIC32 easy and straightforward. It does a great job of walking
through the architecture, showing what the differences are, and how to use the new capabilities.

For those new to the PIC architecture, this book does a very good job
of describing the PIC32 microcontroller and how to program it. The examples used are interesting and well paced, and cover nearly every major feature of the PIC32.

I almost never give out five star ratings to anything, but I gave this one five stars because it is worth it.

Key thing to keep in mind if you do purchase the book, is that it expects you to already know the C programming language. No wasted space on trying to spoon feed C to newbies. So if you are new to C or have only used assembler in the past, it's time to get serious and learn C - download any of the free C compiler's from Microchip's Dev Tools web site, and
then sit down and get ready to program a screaming fast machine.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent companion to the PIC32 processor, the topics and software provided are perfect. Like his previous book on the PIC24, Di Jasio identified the key elements of the PIC32 and its peripherals and helps the reader through using them in practical, easy to understand terms that often build on previously learned information. If you are used to Microchip 8 bit processors, this is your book to step up to 32 bits, if you have experience with the 16 bit PIC24s, the PIC32 will feel very familiar.

It is a must buy for anyone who plans to use the PIC32 or the least bit curious about its capabilities.

I just finished reading through this book and found it to be an excellent learning guide. I've never played with microcontrollers before and wanted a book that would help me learn the basics and understand both practical and theoretical issues in working with them. While the book is written around a specific microcontroller, I felt like it did a great job of presenting the material in a sufficiently general fashion that you could easily apply the principles to devices from other families or even manufacturers. I also think that using a book that was focused on a specific device was helpful, because it can then show you exactly how to do things while you're first learning rather than having to use overly general descriptions that might leave you wondering how you apply the concepts in real life.

There are some typos here and there, but nothing that was terribly confusing. My only real complaint is that sometimes variables or constants used in the author's code snippets are not defined or described in the text or code comments and it can be a little cryptic trying to figure out what he's doing with them (he's a big fan of highly abbreviated variable names). Fortunately, I felt like the underlying concepts were explained well enough that I could still understand what was going on at a high level even if was difficult to figure out some of the specifics of his code. This mostly happened in the later chapters where he deliberately passes over some of the nitty gritty details in order to focus on how to effectively use some of the more advanced microcontroller features. I thought the presentation was very effective in that regard.

Overall, an excellent read from a raw beginner's standpoint.

A Good Book For Those New To The PIC32/MIPS

Lucio Di Jasio, Senior Applications Engineer, follows on his book, Programming 16-Bit PIC Microcontrollers in C: Learning to Fly the PIC 24 (Embedded Technology), with a similar look yet specific to the PIC32/MIPS 32-bit architecture. The style of this book departs from the previous in that the aeronautical theme "flying" has been nearly removed (there is still a debriefing section at the end of each chapter or "Day" as well as "checklists"). Other than those differences, the books are very much the same. So, if you enjoyed Lucio's first book, you will also enjoy this book. The "Tips & Tricks", "Notes for the C Experts", "Notes for the MIPS Experts" and "Notes for 8/16-bit PIC Microcontroller Experts" are similar to the previous book and are very useful.

That said, this book will not teach you the MIPS architecture, but will teach you the PIC32 with mention of how the PIC32 designers adapted prior PIC innovations to the PIC architecture. To learn MIPS (Specifically, the MIPS 4K core) as well as the PIC32, you should also consider the book See MIPS Run, Second Edition (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Computer Architecture and Design) and, to a lessor extent MIPS Assembly Language Programming (for the hard core assembly enthusiasts). If your goal is simply to learn the PIC32, this book will get you started.
