AVR RISC Microcontroller Handbook

By

  • Claus Kuhnel, Dr. Claus Kühnel is the Engineering Manager for Multanova AG, in Switzerland. He is a member of the IEEE, and has a strong background in microcontroller design. Dr. Kühnel has written books and articles for the German and Swiss electronics markets.

The AVR RISC Microcontroller Handbook is a comprehensive guide to designing with Atmel's new controller family, which is designed to offer high speed and low power consumption at a lower cost. The main text is divided into three sections: hardware, which covers all internal peripherals; software, which covers programming and the instruction set; and tools, which explains using Atmel's Assembler and Simulator (available on the Web) as well as IAR's C compiler.
