From the Back Cover
Microchip's PIC18 offers a world of possibilities from LEDs to voltmeters to real-time operating systems (RTOSs). Filled with projects, this book starts the reader with an overview of the basic features of microcontrollers followed by a review of the PIC18 series in depth. Also, included is a brief tutorial on the C programming language. The mikroC compiler is used throughout the book with a chapter devoted to its functions and libraries. Currently available development kits are discussed including simulators, emulators, and in-circuit debuggers with examples of what these tools can bring to a project. All of this is in preparation for the challenging projects that you will find between these covers.
Advanced PIC18 projects include:
" SD Card projects such as: Read CID Register and Display on a PC Screen
" USB-based projects such as: USB-based Microcontroller Input/Output
" CAN bus projects such as: Temperature sensor
" RTOS projects such as: Random number generator
The accompanying CD-ROM contains source files and HEX files for all of the projects and a limited-version of the mikroC compiler.
