John Morton offers a uniquely concise and practical guide to getting up and running with the PIC Microcontroller. The PIC is one of the most popular of the microcontrollers that are transforming electronic project work and product design, and this book is the ideal introduction for students, teachers, technicians and electronics enthusiasts.

Assuming no prior knowledge of microcontrollers and introducing the PIC Microcontroller's capabilities through simple projects, this book is ideal for electronics hobbyists, students, school pupils and technicians. The step-by-step explanations and the useful projects make it ideal for student and pupil self-study: this is not just a reference book - you start work with the PIC microcontroller straight away.

The revised third edition focuses entirely on the re-programmable flash PIC microcontrollers such as the PIC16F54, PIC16F84 and the extraordinary 8-pin PIC12F508 and PIC12F675 devices.

Key Features

  • Demystifies the leading microcontroller for students, engineers an hobbyists
  • Emphasis on putting the PIC to work, not theoretical microelectronics
  • Simple programs and circuits introduce key features and commands through project work


All newcomers to the PIC microcontroller: students, electronics enthusiasts and technician engineers. Ideal for college and high school electronics project work
