*Just months after the introduction of the new generation of 32-bit PIC microcontrollers, a Microchip insider and acclaimed author takes you by hand at the exploration of the PIC32*Includes handy checklists to help readers perform the most common programming and debugging tasksThe new 32-bit microcontrollers bring the promise of more speed and more performance while offering an unprecedented level of compatibility with existing 8 and 16-bit PIC microcontrollers. In sixteen engaging chapters, using a parallel track to his previous title dedicated to 16-bit programming, the author puts all these claims to test while offering a gradual introduction to the development and debugging of embedded control applications in C. Author Lucio Di Jasio, a PIC and embedded control expert, offers unique insight into the new 32-bit architecture while developing a number of projects of growing complexity. Experienced PIC users and newcomers to the field alike will benefit from the text’s many thorough examples which demonstrate how to nimbly side-step common obstacles, solve real-world design problems efficiently and optimize code using the new PIC32 features and peripheral set. You will learn about:*basic timing and I/O operation*debugging methods with the MPLAB SIM *simulator and ICD tools*multitasking using the PIC32 interrupts*all the new hardware peripherals*how to control LCD displays*experimenting with the Explorer16 board and *the PIC32 Starter Kit*accessing mass-storage media*generating audio and video signals *and more!TABLE OF CONTENTSDay 1 And the adventure beginsDay 2 Walking in circlesDay 3 Message in a BottleDay 4 NUMB3RSDay 5 InterruptsDay 6 Memory Part 2 ExperimentingDay 7 RunningDay 8 Communication Day 9 LinksDay 10 Glass = BlissDay 11 It’s an analog worldPart 3 ExpansionDay 12 Capturing User InputsDay 13 UTubeDay 14 Mass StorageDay 15 File I/ODay 16 Musica Maestro!
