CLASSIC GUIDE TO CUSTOMIZING BASIC STAMP FOR HOBBYISTS AND DESIGNERS If you want to take advantage of the popular PIC Microcontroller for your electronics projects, but are intimidated by the programming involved, your worries are over. Programming and Customizing the Basic Stamp, Second Edition gives you a comprehensive tutorial on the easy-to-use BASIC Stamp single-board computer, which runs a PIC Microcontroller, and doesn't require you to do any assembly language programming. This new edition moves you briskly from electronic foundations through BASIC Stamp "Boot Camps" and an intelligent traffic signal simulation to build a robotic bug with whisker sensors, a time/temperature display, and a data-logging thermometer. Written by Scott Edwards, the original author of the widely read "Stamp Applications" column for Nuts & Volts magazine, this easy-to-follow reference includes a CD that gives you all the IBM- compatible software tools necessary to begin developing Stamp applications.

The Microchip PIC family of microcontrollers is the most popular series of microcontrollers in the world. However, no microcontroller is of any use without software to make it perform useful functions. This comprehensive reference focuses on designing with Microchip’s mid-range PIC line using MBASIC, a powerful but easy to learn programming language. It illustrates MBASIC’s abilities through a series of design examples, beginning with simple PIC-based projects and proceeding through more advanced designs. Unlike other references however, it also covers essential hardware and software design fundamentals of the PIC microcontroller series, including programming in assembly language when needed to supplement the capabilities of MBASIC. Details of hardware/software interfacing to the PIC are also provided. BENEFIT TO THE READER: This book provides one of the most thorough introductions available to the world’s most popular microcontroller, with numerous hardware and software working design examples which engineers, students and hobbyists can directly apply to their design work and studies. Using MBASIC, it is possible to develop working programs for the PIC in a much shorter time frame than when using assembly language. Offers a complete introduction to programming the most popular microcontroller in the world, using the MBASIC compiler from a company that is committed to supporting the book both through purchases and promotion Provides numerous real-world design examples, all carefully tested

Ready-to-build 8051 microcontroller projects--at your fingertips. Probably the most successful microcontroller on the market today, Intel's legendary 8051 lives on in enhanced versions sold by more than 20 chip manufacturers. Packed with over 30 experiments using Dallas Semiconductor's "HSM" flavors of the 8051 plus the Atmel AT89Cx051 "Flash" based versions, Myke Predko's Programming and Customizing the 8051 Microcontroller puts you in control of the 8051's architecture and instruction set--and even supplies a baker's dozen of ready-to-build example applications, programs and circuits. (You'll see how to create an Atmel AT89Cx061 programmer...a device emulator that exploits the 8051's ability to access external memory...a robot based on the Tamiya "Wall Hugging Mouse"--complete with a TV remote control interface...two real-time 8051 operating systems...and many other exciting projects). Best of all, the included CD-ROM supplies source code for the book's experiments and applications, a demonstration cop of the "UMPS" integrated development environment (IDE), and data sheets for the Dallas Semiconductor and Atmel 8051 compatible devices.

»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

Microcontrollers can be found in just about everything electronic, from cars (suspension systems, anti-lock brakes, electronic seats, etc.) to kitchen appliances. The myriad of variables available in choosing a microcontroller can make choosing the "best" device for an application very difficult. It is also difficult to find good introductory information, both in the field of microcontrollers for beginners as well as the different devices available for use in an application. This book will provide a comprehensive introduction/reference for the five most popular 8-bit Microcontrollers used today, both in professional applications & in hobbyists' experiments.
