Get LEDs to Light, Measure Analog Input and External Interrupt...with 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.

C What Happens teaches the user how to write embedded software by stepping them through easy to follow examples and diagrams. The user will learn how to write a control flow, modular program, how to handle data and much more. The user will also experience basic C structure by leaning how to use a timer overflow as an interrupt or how to use Strings, Arrays and structures in their code.

Learn how to design and create embedded programs by conquering:

  • C syntax and data types

  • Built in functions

  • Pre-processor directions

  • I/O pin manipulation by turning I/O on or off, reading imports and writing pins
