Programming PIC Microcontrollers with PICBASIC
The PICBASIC programming language makes it possible to create powerful software for the PIC
microcontroller in days instead of the weeks required when using assembly language. This comprehensive tutorial
assumes no prior experience with PIC BASIC. It opens with an introduction to such basic concepts as variables,
statements, operators, and structures. This is followed by discussion of the two most commonly used PIC BASIC compilers.
The author then discusses programming the most common version of the PIC microcontroller, the 15F84. The remainder
of the book examines several real-world examples of programming PICs with PICBASIC. In keeping with the integrated
nature of embedded technology, both hardware and software are discussed in these examples; circuit details are given
so that readers may replicate the designs for themselves or use them as the starting points for their development efforts.
KEY FEATURES: * Offers a complete introduction to programming the world’s most commonly used microcontroller, the Microchip
PIC, with the powerful but easy to use PICBASIC language. * Gives numerous design examples and projects to illustrate
important concepts. * Accompanying CD contains the source files and executables discussed in the book as well as an electronic
version of the book.

PIC Basic: Programming and Projects
Dogan Ibrahim’s approach is firmly based in practical applications and project work,
making this a toolkit rather than a programming guide. No previous experience with microcontrollers
is assumed – the PIC family of microcontrollers, and in particular the popular reprogrammable 16X84
device, are introduced from scratch. The BASIC language, as used by the most popular PIC compilers,
is also introduced from square one, with a simple code used to illustrate each of the most commonly used instructions.
The practicalities of programming and the scope of using a PIC are then explored through 22 wide ranging electronics projects.
