Programming 32-bit Microcontrollers in C: Exploring the PIC32

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 tasks

The 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!
