PIC microcontrollers are used worldwide in commercial and industrial devices. The 8-bit PIC which this book focuses on is a versatile work horse that completes many designs. An engineer working with applications that include a microcontroller will no doubt come across the PIC sooner rather than later. It is a must to have a working knowledge of this 8-bit technology. This book takes the novice from introduction of embedded systems through to advanced development techniques for utilizing and optimizing the PIC family of microcontrollers in your device. To truly understand the PIC, assembly and C programming language must be understood. The author explains both with sample code and examples, and makes the transition from the former to the latter an easy one. This is a solid building block for future PIC endeavors.

Second in the series, Practical Aspects of Embedded System Design using Microcontrollers emphasizes the same philosophy of “Learning by Doing” and “Hands on Approach” with the application oriented case studies developed around the PIC16F877 and AT 89S52, today’s most popular microcontrollers. Readers with an academic and theoretical understanding of embedded microcontroller systems are introduced to the practical and industry oriented Embedded System design. When kick starting a project in the laboratory a reader will be able to benefit experimenting with the ready made designs and ‘C’ programs. One can also go about carving a big dream project by treating the designs and programs presented in this book as building blocks. Practical Aspects of Embedded System Design using Microcontrollers is yet another valuable addition and guides the developers to achieve shorter product development times with the use of microcontrollers in the days of increased software complexity. Going through the text and experimenting with the programs in a laboratory will definitely empower the potential reader, having more or less programming or electronics experience, to build embedded systems using microcontrollers around the home, office, store, etc. Practical Aspects of Embedded System Design using Microcontrollers will serve as a good reference for the academic community as well as industry professionals and overcome the fear of the newbies in this field of immense global importance.

This book, published November 2015 as a 1st edition 1st printing, is the second in a series of three books that teach the fundamentals of embedded systems as applied to MSP432 microcontrollers. These books are primarily written for undergraduate electrical and computer engineering students. They could also be used for professionals learning the ARM platform. The first book Embedded Systems: Introduction to the MSP432 is an introduction to computers and interfacing focusing on assembly language and C programming. This second book focuses on interfacing and the design of embedded systems. The third book Embedded Systems: Real-Time Operating Systems for ARM Cortex-M Microcontrollers is an advanced book focusing on operating systems, high-speed interfacing, control systems, and robotics. An embedded system is a system that performs a specific task and has a computer embedded inside. A system is comprised of components and interfaces connected together for a common purpose. This book presents components, interfaces and methodologies for building systems. Specific topics include the architecture of microcontrollers, design methodology, verification, hardware/software synchronization, interfacing devices to the computer, timing diagrams, real-time systems, data collection and processing, motor control, analog filters, digital filters, real-time signal processing, wireless communication, low-power design, and the internet of things. In general, the area of embedded systems is an important and growing discipline within electrical and computer engineering. The educational market of embedded systems has been dominated by simple microcontrollers like the PIC, the 9S12, and the 8051. This is because of their market share, low cost, and historical dominance. However, as problems become more complex, so must the systems that solve them. A number of embedded system paradigms must shift in order to accommodate this growth in complexity. First, the number of calculations per second will increase from millions/sec to billions/sec. Similarly, the number of lines of software code will also increase from thousands to millions. Thirdly, systems will involve multiple microcontrollers supporting many simultaneous operations. Lastly, the need for system verification will continue to grow as these systems are deployed into safety critical applications. These changes are more than a simple growth in size and bandwidth. These systems must employ parallel programming, high-speed synchronization, real-time operating systems, fault tolerant design, priority interrupt handling, and networking. Consequently, it will be important to provide our students with these types of design experiences. The purpose of writing these books at this time is to bring engineering education into the 21st century. This book employs many approaches to learning. It will not include an exhaustive recapitulation of the information in data sheets. First, it begins with basic fundamentals, which allows the reader to solve new problems with new technology. Second, the book presents many detailed design examples. These examples illustrate the process of design. There are multiple structural components that assist learning. Checkpoints, with answers in the back, are short easy to answer questions providing immediate feedback while reading. The book includes an index and a glossary so that information can be searched. The most important learning experiences in a class like this are of course the laboratories. Each chapter has suggested lab assignments. More detailed lab descriptions are available on the web. Specifically, look at the lab assignments for EE445L and EE445M. These books will cover embedded systems for ARM Cortex-M microcontrollers with specific details on the MSP432. Although the solutions are specific for the MSP432, it will be possible to use these books for other ARM derivatives. Volume 3 can be used for either the TM4C or MSP432 families.
