Description

John Iovine has created his next masterwork with PIC Projects for Non-Programmers. Engineers and hobbyists new to the PIC who want to create something today will find a valuable resource in this book. By working through the accessible projects in this book, readers will use a symbolic compiler that allows them to create ‘code’ via flowcharts immediately, getting their projects up and running quickly! The ability to create applications with the PIC from day one makes this a real page turner and a highly satisfying introduction to microcontrollers for both novices and readers who need to build their skills. The Flowcode 4 software is available on a companion website free of charge.

Key Features

  • Gets readers up and running fast with a quick review of basics and then onto ten tried-and-tested projects
  • No languages to learn: Simply drag and drop the icons, plug in the settings and the PIC will respond to the commands
  • Step by step guide to using Flowcode 4
