Why Use C Language?
"C doesn't put constraints in your way, it doesn't force you into using a particular programming style...in terms of getting something done with not too much effort, I haven't seen anything to this day that I like better." (Brian Kernighan, Author: The C Programming Language)
Why Choose Microchip PIC® Microcontrollers?
"Leading engineers worldwide continue to use the PIC® microcontroller architecture because we provide a competitive advantage to their businesses with faster time to market, lower total system cost and low-risk product development." (Steve Sanghi, President and CEO, Microchip Technology, Inc.)
C What Happens by David Benson
C What Happens is a series of explanations and examples for those who want to learn to program PIC® microcontrollers using the C programming language. It is assumed that the reader has no knowledge of PIC® microcontrollers or programming, but does have a rudimentary understanding of electronics.
The reader will learn to create programs by making selections from a large variety of built-in functions provided in the CCS C Compiler, writing his/her own functions as needed, and writing executable statements. The reader will "C what happens" by programming a PIC® microcontroller with the newly created code and exercising it using a simple circuit described in the book.
The subject matter is laid out in a logical progression from simple to not-so-simple and is illustrated with lots of examples.
