PIC Microcontrollers with PICBASIC by Chuck Hellebuyck

        This comprehensive tutorial assumes no prior experience with PICBASIC. 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 PICBASIC 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.

Pick'n up the Pace - Microcontroller Application Guide by David Benson

        "PIC'n Up The Pace" is an intermediate level applications guide covering Microchip Technology's PIC Microcontrollers. Serial communication as a means of transferring data between PIC's and peripheral chips and also between two or more PIC's is described. Use of the 93C46 serial EEPROM is detailed as an example. Since we live in an analog world, A/D and D/A are discussed with several methods illustrated for each. Conditioning signals from sensors with an analog voltage output is described. Interfacing PIC controlled systems with humans requires some math, binary to decimal conversion and vice versa, alphanumeric LCD intefacing and scanning keypads. Single wire serial communication with a PIC-controlled LCD module which can be built by the reader is included. A digital thermometer example projects brings these topics together as an example. Finally, PIC16C84/PIC16F84 data EEPROM memory, program memory paging and locating tables in program memory are discussed.



PIC Basic : Programming and Projects by Dogan Ibrahim

        PIC BASIC is the simplest and quickest way to get up and running - designing and building circuits using a microcontroller.
        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
