PIC Projects and Applications using C

A Project-based Approach

PIC Projects and Applications Using C details how to program the PIC microcontroller in the C language. The book takes a learn-by-doing approach, with applications covering topics such as inputs, outputs, keypads, alphanumeric displays, analogue-to-digital conversion, radio transmitters and receivers, data EEPROM, interrupts and timing. To aid debugging, the book provides a section detailing the use of the simulator and in-circuit debugger.

With this book you will learn:

  • How to program the PIC microcontroller in C
  • Techniques for using the simulator and debuggers to find faults on your code
  • The ins and outs of interfacing circuits, such as radio modules and liquid crystal displays
  • How to use the PIC on-board functions, such as interrupts and timing modules, and make analogue measurements


Electronics engineers, including embedded systems designers and control engineers, technicians in industry, hobbyists needing a more complete grounding in microcontroller principles and applications. Students taking introductory level classes in courses in electronics / microelectronics.

  • “…the presentation is first-class: concepts are explained very clearly, code is commented on almost line by line, and constant reference to the environment greatly simplifies learning. For all of these reasons, this is undoubtedly a book for beginners: they can use it either on their own, as self-teaching material, or in a class of some sort.”--ComputingReviews.com,June 18,2014
