Not only because GOLD and GREEN members get a 13% discount and don’t pay for shipping, but also because this book shows you how to program PIC microcontrollers using the totally free and totally easy-to-use programming language JAL. This extremely powerful programming language for PIC microcontrollers enjoys great popularity in the hobby world and comes with an excellent integrated development environment (IDE), also free of course.
Step by step PIC Microcontroller Programming helps you improve your skills. No previous knowledge is needed: anyone can get started with this book. Once you have actually completed all the exercises you will be able to write PIC microcontroller programs, as well as read and understand programs written by other people. You learn JAL commands, you make an LED blink, build a time switch, measure a potentiometer’s wiper position, produce sounds, suppress contact bounce, and control the brightness of an LED. And of course you learn how to spot and fix errors in your programs.
The companion software for this book, including the JAL programming language, can be downloaded free of charge. In addition, you may order a kit of parts so you don't have to go shopping for the required components.
