Select the right Microcontroller for any application. A straight-talking guide to all the most common 8-bit microcontrollers now in use, TAB Electronics Microcontroller Handbook, edited by Micahel Predko, tells you everything you need to know about the Intel 8051, Motorola 68HC05, Microchip PIC, Atmel AVR and Parallax Stamp MCUs. Complete with applications recommendations--from automotive parts and personal computers to household appliances and toys--this authoritative tool shows you how each microcontroller works and interfaces with peripheral devices; explains features, architecture and the instruction set for the built-in processor; and serves up example applications plus all the data necessary to develop them. A handy chart also gives you time-saving at-a-glance comparisons of different device families. Pop the included CD-ROM into your drive for manufacturers' data sheets on each controller plus example applications source files and tools required to assemble and simulate the code.
