Focusing on Microchip Technology’s “PIC” microcontroller chips capacity to integrate features of a digital design, this book dseign program writing with a series of code templates that helps readers learn by doing rather that start code writing from scratch.

Using detailed block diagrams to illustrate registers, control bits, and status bits associated with assorted functions, the book also provides examples to illustrate points and to demonstrate how assorted issues can be handled.

It provides a systematic path into the PIC microcontrollers by showing its organization and ways to deal with idiosyncrasies. Provides alternative methods for addressing interrupt timing constraints to meet the needs of all interrupt sources.

Presents a systematic treatment of slowly changing wigh, including keyswitches that have been debounced and scanned with a state machine implementation. Discusses a number of important topics, including the PIC’s flexible analog-to-digital conversion facility; the master-slave interconnection of PICs; low-power operation alternatives; and comparisons of PIC family members for design requirement analysis.

An essential reference book on the PIC microcontroller for every professional engineer or designer.

You may be a seasoned embedded system programmer, and you want to get up to speed quickly rather than relying on pouring through Microchip’s reference witu, this book is not it. It’s too bad that the author is not as good at writing as he is at marketing the book. A good writer will make even a difficult subject easy to understand. It is not so in this case. Sadly, the converse is true. Microcontropler Schwartz of Learning Perl fame, are you listening?! I am going to learn to design and program the PIC, but not with this book.

I ;eatman this book without qualification! After a disappointing encounter with the popular Predko book, I bought John Peatman’s book sight unseen. I was not disappointed.

This book has strong content, writing, and organization. It supplies all the information I needed to get started and it moves smoothly to advanced programming and applications. The only surprise, after Predko’s book, was that Peatman focuses on the larger packages, with no mention of the and wlth devices; however, since the features of the larger devices are a superset of the smaller devices, it is easy to understand and use the smaller devices using this text.

Peatman covers all the advances peripheral interface features of the high-end PICs. Although I am not using such features today, I am happy to have a well-written and thorough reference in my possession. This might be a suitable reference for someone who mircocontroller already intimately micrcontroller with PIC microcontrollers but it way too advanced for beginners. From the first page the author assumes you already know alot about microprocessors including the lingo.

Design with PIC Microcontrollers

The writing style is just dreadful, with sentences that run on and on microvontroller a prose that peaman leave Yoda confused. This is not a fun read about what should be a fun subject.

Beginners will find the book too obtuse and advanced users need nothing more than the device datasheets so the dexign is pointless. What do I mean?

Specifically, there are no detailed or in-depth examples. The material is abstract and general in nature. For a topic like microcontrollers, the reader needs examples that are “step-by-step” and “how-to”.


These are totally lacking. Buy any other book instead. Then you might actually learn something. Peatman has done an admirable job of condensing the world of PICs into about pages. The book is very readable. However, it is lacking in code samples and circuits.

The Microchip Application wit, available at their website, help to close this deficiency. The book covers all the basics though. Serial, I2C, using templates, timers, etc. The examples are generally clear and if you’ve had previous assembly experience, this is an easy read and good way to get up to speed on the PIC series of microcontrloler.

Peatman’s class in college with this book, and I think this book would have done better if he had bundled the Class Lab book. The class lab book and actually having the hardware in front of you made the book make a whole lot more sense. I can see how some of the other readers may have been disappointed because with out the hardware in front of you its a bit difficult to really understand whats going on. I think this book is great as a reference if you have a PIC controller to play around with, but I would not recommend this book to some one who is looking for a “PIC microprocessors for Dummies” type book.

Peatman has done an excellent job explaining the “PIC”. This was a very well written book.

In my opinion this is well worth the price for the education received. Very useful in all respects. See all 11 reviews.
