Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Quintessential PIC® Microcontroller deals with the central `intelligence’ of most smart embedded digital systems and aims to give the reader the confidence to design, construct and program a real working system using the industrial standard and popular Microchip PIC family of devices as the exemplar.

Aimed specifically at a readership with no prior knowledge of software, electronics or logic design, this book is suitable for both industrial engineers and hobbyists. Students of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science, taking relevant courses or engaged in project work at either an under- or postgraduate level, will find it an ideal textbook.

The second edition has been extensively rewritten to both rationalize and clarify the introductory chapters and to update and extend the core material. Whilst the thrust remains with the Mid-range devices, an additional chapter has also been added on the Extended-range family.

Key features include:

• The use of current real-world hardware and software products to illustrate the material

• Numerous fully worked examples as well as self-assessment questions

• An associated web site providing solutions, further examples, listings and useful resources at http://www.engj.ulst.ac.uk/sidk/quintessential

• Clear and concise presentation of key points and underlying concepts

Format: Paperback
This is a very thorough treatment of PICs. There are so many great aspects to this book it is hard to know where to begin. The book starts at the beginning, talking about logic circuits and essential micro theory, such as address decoding and so on. The PIC architecture and instruction set is covered in detail and the many well crafted diagrams are used to convey the relevant information.
I particularly enjoyed the later chapters on interfacing, parallel, serial and A/D. A whole chapter on using timers is also very welcome. These chapters offered real practical advice and examples. In fact there are many examples throughout the book and all have been tried and tested. It goes without saying that programming the PIC (instruction set, bank addressing, assembly code, timing, modules and subroutines and so on...) is well covered and a whole chapter is devoted to interrupt handling.
This book is dense with a lot of great info packed beautifully into about 500 pages. There is an accompanying website which has extensive resources such as instruction sets that can be downloaded and printed out. There is also an comprehensive errata section and solutions to self assessment questions that appear at the end of nearly all the chapters. I really like this as most books are very quick to ask questions but rarely do they give the answers. Since most of us are not monks we don't want to spend the rest of our lives thinking of what an answer might be. Much better to understand the problem and be guided to the answer when we are in a hurry.
MPLAB, available free from Microcontroller's website (or indeed the authors) is used throughout so you don't need to worry about [the] software.
Make no mistake, this is not a hobbyists cookbook. This is a serious treatment of a serious subject.

I am fairly new to the PIC world. While trying to pic (pun intended)out a suitable MCU book I came across this particular book. This is a great reference book for both advanced and begginers. I also purchased PROGRAMMING AND CUSTOMIZING PICmicro MICROCONTROLLERS by Myke predko. The combination of these book had me writting softwre and building complex circuitry in no time. I was able to build a small robot which uses the following:
Pulse width modulation, Seven Segment Display control, Playback/Recording, push buttons, servo contol, DC motor control.
These are both great books I reccomend them highly.

Amazon is trying to pass on the older edition of this book as the new edition. I tried two times and I keep getting the orange cover book, which is a 2002 edition not the 2007. Once you get this book you will have a hard time getting your money back.

Format: Paperback
This second edition is the most rewarding PIC book I have read, and so I feel the need to protest the bad raps in 2 earlier Amazon reviews. I actually got my copy through Amazon, so that takes care of complaint #1. The other complaint has to do with fluff and old English. Well, the guy is a Brit, who has a wonderful sense of humor, and an exceptional command of the language. It seems to me that his is the clearest, yet densest PIC presentation I have encountered. He sometimes goes deeper than I was comfortable with, but presentation was always direct. That he typeset the book himself shows in the grace and economy of the presentation. This is an altogether delightful and rewarding book.
