The advent of interactive design software has allowed the simulation of microcontrollers without having to build and debug hardware. Interfacing PIC Microcontrollers: Embedded Design by Interactive Simulation discusses microcontroller design and applications. The book is divided into three parts. Part 1 introduces the PIC 16F877 architecture, software, and simulation system. Part 2 discusses interfacing techniques. Part 3 discusses power outputs, serial communication, sensor interfacing, and the design of MCU-based systems. Each topic is illustrated by designs based on the 16F877. The Proteus design software by Labcenter Electronics is used throughout. The book is suited for more advanced readers with prior knowledge of the basics of microcontroller systems.
*Comprehensive coverage of a topic not widely explored in the wealth of PIC books on the market, concentrating on the popular PIC16F877 device
*Circuit simulation software allows step-by-step examples, supplied as assembly source code, to be run interactively – aiding student, technician and hobbyist learning.
*A companion website will provide downloads of application files used in the book and links to associated manufacturers
