Designing Embedded Systems with PIC Microcontrollers: Principles and Applications

This e-book is a hands-on creation to the rules and perform of embedded procedure layout utilizing the PIC microcontroller. filled with precious examples and illustrations, it supplies an in-depth remedy of microcontroller layout, programming in either meeting language and C, and contours complex issues reminiscent of networking and real-time working structures.

Logic and Language Models for Computer Science

This article makes in-depth explorations of a large diversity of theoretical issues in machine technology. It plunges into the purposes of the summary innovations that allows you to confront and tackle the skepticism of readers, and instill in them an appreciation for the usefulness of conception. A two-part presentation integrates good judgment and formal language—both with functions.

A hardware multiplier is also available. The single, often overloaded, interrupt vector of the mid-range family becomes four. Although much more powerful than the 16 Series, this family is limited in number, and Microchip appear to be focusing on the 18 Series family to move forward developments at the more powerful end of their range. The 18 Series family In this family Microchip comes to grips with some of the issues of sophisticated processors. The instruction set has increased again, now to 75 instructions, and is designed to facilitate use of the C programming language.

While Microchip have become known for their very small microcontrollers, Freescale have also been active in this area. 15. Although it is not clear from the figure, this microcontroller has a Von Neumann structure. The same data interconnection goes to both data and program memory, and to the peripherals. 15 The Freescale MC68HC908QTI microcontroller – simplified block diagram 22 Tiny computers, hidden control which means that both the program and data word size are 8-bit. Like the 12F508, the Freescale device has on-chip program and data memory, with somewhat larger sizes.

We will explore the overall architecture of the device and take time to get into some detail over its memory – both the technology and the memory maps. In this chapter you will therefore learn about: • • • • The PIC 16 Series family, in overview The overall architecture of the 16F84A The 16F84A memory system, along with a review of memory technologies Other hardware features of the 16F84A, including the reset system. If you wish, you will also learn about: • Alternative approaches to microcontroller structure, through an example from another microcontroller family.
