Overview Of Book
The beauty of this book is the simplicity of writing method. It focuses on very easy and systematic ways to learn PIC microcontroller and interfacing with example with assembly language and including C language which is the most common and used programming language to program any microcontroller. It teaches us numerous live practical examples with code and hardware learning. Download PIC Microcontroller and Embedded Systems: Using assembly and C for PIC 18 by Muhammad Ali Mazidi is well written a treasure of knowledge and technology that starts from a simple methods then approach goes to step by step to the higher lever. Not only the advanced programmers but a newbie can also take maximum advantage from this book.
Each chapter is dedicated to learn in-depth core of PIC microcontroller with all interfacing techniques with PIC microcontrollers like motors, sensors, stepper motor, LED, LCD interfacing, timers, interrupts and more. Full complete chapters on Hardware designs and implementation. The book focuses on learning embedded sytems based on PIC microcontrollers software and hardware design from beginning to advanced.

Table of Contents
1: The PIC Microcontrollers: History and Features
This chapter focuses on the history of PIC microcontrollers and basic features to put light on brief history of microcontroller so that student should understand its models and changing latest models from beginning.
2: PIC Architecture & Assembly Language Programming 39
The core of any embedded system is the language in which an embedded software is written, the most common and used programming languages are Assembly Language and C, In this chapter we will focus on PIC with assembly language tutorial
3: Branch, Call, and Time Delay Loop 97
Branching, calling and time delay, loop are the important part of any language here in this chapter you will learn these these important building blocks in assembly language.
4: PIC I/O Port Programming 129
To connect microcontroller to the outer world it is must to connect the said hardware to microcontrollers ports, they may be 8 bit or 16 bit. Example need to connect interfacing relay, lcd, led we use the ports to connect these.
5: Arithmetic, Logic Instructions, and Programs 155
To internal calculation PIC microcontroller uses these features. Where it needs to do mathematical operations, calculations, decision making then these routines are used.
6: Bank Switching, Table Processing, Macros, and Modules 193
A dedicated chapter to understand better about Macros and modules, bank switching which plays an important role in execution of functions. Brief overview of PIC table processing.
7: PIC Programming in C 251
A chapter teaches how to program PIC 18 microcontroller using C language, so far you have learnt working with assembly language with PIC microcontroller.
8: PIC18F Hardware Connection and ROM Loaders 299
This chapter introduces the hardware connection and Read Only Memory which is called ROM an area where embedded application is stored to run.
9: PIC18 Timer Programming in Assembly and C 335
Timer are used to execute a certain line of code or function after given interval. Example if i want a LED to blink after every 15 seconds then we will use the timer.
10: PIC18 Serial Port Programming in Assembly and C 387
The function of serial port is to connect PIC microcontroller to the external data transfer, specifically with computer. Using RS232 protocol, PIC is programmed to share data with external circuitry and computer. It can also read the data sent by another connected devices.
11: Interrupt Programming in Assembly and C 423
Focusing on interrupt programming here you will learn how to handle internal interrupt of PIC and writing routines for them to work as per our own need.

When it comes to connect LCd and Keyboard with PIC, then this chapter will help you a lot to learn basic and advanced techniques to display data on LCD and accept data from PIC microcontroller.
13: ADC, DAC, and Sensor Interfacing 499
Sensors are important part of any embedded systems, when it comes to understand the external environment example reading temperature, humidity or any level then these ADC and DAC are called. Analog to digital converter and Digital to analog converter.
14: Using Flash and EEPROM Memories for Data Storage 529
To store data permanently there is a space in PIC microcontroller, it is called EEPROM, Data written on these are permanent until we overwrite or remove these grammatically. Suppose want to store company name in the system then we write and read the company name on given location using programming language.
15: CCP and ECCP Programming 569
While working with PIC microcontroller you will have to face CDP and ECCP programming, this chapter focuses on these.
