Microcontrollers are used today in a wide array of items - car engine control systems, implantable medical devices, remote controls, office machines, household appliances, toys and much more. This technology has never been more accessible to the amateur and this book sets out to show, in an ‘easy to understand’ style, how to make these powerful tools work for you.
Aimed at Radio Amateurs, Microcontroller Know How introduces you to the controller types included and provides practical working microcontroller projects for these with all the supporting files. The projects range in complexity and are aimed at different microcontrollers to take the reader on a learning journey in embedded software development using 'C', whilst also providing exposure to different technologies and development environments. Projects are targeted at the STMicroelectronics STM32 processor range, the Amtel/Microchip ARM processor range, and a Wi-Fi connected project using the ‘Internet of things’ Espressif Systems ESP8266 microcontroller. An introduction to PIC programming in 'C' is also included with a set of basic projects targeted at the PIC16F18877 device. For the wide variety of projects included you will find details on the development environment, build instructions and source code alongside illustrative pictures and diagrams to ensure the reader can recreate a working example. The author has built and documented each project and all the source code and other supporting files are also available online.
If you want a straight-forward guide to Microcontrollers that gives you the confidence to tackle projects on a variety of different technologies, or want interesting projects to try, or perhaps just an insight into this topic, then Microcontroller Know How is certainly the book for you.
