Description

Do you want a low cost way to learn C programming for microcontrollers? This 300 page book and software CD show you how to use Atmel's $19.99 AVR Butterfly board, Atmel AVR Studio, and the FREE WinAVR C compiler to make a very inexpensive system for using C to develop microcontroller projects.

Students will find the thorough coverage of C explained in the context of microcontrollers to be an invaluable learning aide. Professionals, even those who already know C, will find many useful tested software and hardware examples that will speed their development work.

Test drive the book by downloading the FREE first three chapters of the book as a 39 page pdf file:"Quick Start Guide for using the WinAVR Compiler with ATMEL's AVR Butterfly" NOTE October 9, 2008, this is a new version of the Quick Start Guide that is upgraded for Windows Vista and the newest Atmel AVR Studio and WinAVR. Chapter 2 is not exactly like the book to accommodate these upgrades.

The included CD has all the source code, the FREE WinAVR C Compiler, Atmel's AVR Studio, Br@y++ Terminal, the ATmega169 Databook, and the Butterfly Source Code. Note October 9, 2009, the CD now has two sections, the older perfectly good stuff for before Vista and the new stuff for Vista.

In addition to an in-depth coverage of C, the book has projects for:

  • Port I/O reading switches and blinking LEDs
  • UART communication with a PC
  • Using interrupts, timers, and counters
  • Pulse Width Modulation for LED brightness and motor speed control
  • Creating a Real Time Clock
  • Making music
  • ADC: Analog to Digital Conversion
  • DAC: Digital to Analog Conversion
  • Voltage, light, and temperature measurement
  • Making a slow Function Generator and Digital Oscilloscope
  • LCD programming
  • Writing a Finite State Machine The author (an Electrical Engineer, Official Atmel AVR Consultant, and award winning writer) makes the sometimes-tedious job of learning C easier by often breaking the in-depth technical exposition with humor and anecdotes detailing his personal experience and misadventures.
