'[PIC]: List of PIC related books ?'
2004\03\02@040648 by Jan-Erik Soderholm

Hi.
Before I try to surf around the whole web, does
someone know of a compilation of the available
books on PICs ?

I'm specificaly looking for beginner-style book, and
if they use the 18-series PICs, the better.

I've got the impression that there might not be
that many books that are targeting the 18-series, right ?

Jan-Erik.

Hi again.
I have fund this book (with its own homepage !) :

http://www.picbook.com/

It's focused on 18F452, which is perfect for me.
Well, we will use the 18F252, but the 18F452 is at least
closer then any of the 16F-PICs that most books are about...

Now, have anyone got this book ?
How tight coupled is it to the development hardware
("QwikFlash board") they are selling ? Or is it a good value
even without this board ?

Regards
Jan-Erik.

Yes Jan-Erik I have that book. I'm a book freak, so I buy lots of
them. You'll find templates and stuff related to the included board.
And there comes a special developed assembler with it. I think
some girl called Meremonte in the Georgia institute developed it.
SASM it is called. The value of the book is up to you to find.
I can say only that it is a good introduction into the 18F series.
Best regards
VV

Just like my wife, but no PIC books there, I'm afraid :-)

Hm... What I need to know is if this book is usable for a PIC
beginner (using 18F PICs), but using Wouters "Dwarf boards"
instead of the QwikFlash boards".

Anyway, so far it's the only book on PICs that is
specificaly talking about the PIC18 series that I've found.

I'm currently trying to find it in Sweden. The closest so far
is Amazon-UK...

Thanks you comments !

Jan-Erik.

I think it will meet your needs, but it is pricey! About $70 I think.
It is the textbook for a course taught at Georgia Tech University. The SASM
program is a preprocessor that formats and also sets up some control
structures (If...Then...,Repeat until, etc,...)  that are fed directly to
MPLAB for assembly. I hope to investigate the preprocessor Idea further in
the future.

Complete schematics and code are provided on the website.  The hardware is
expensive but the quality and service is high.

Loading the bootloader to the 18F452 is not straight forward. Apparently it
needs an ICD2 to accomplish that objective. I don't understand that and it
continues to elude my grasp. I corrupted mine somehow and was unable to
restore it. I simply ordered a couple more from their supplier and restored
the operation. I was programming with the Microchip C demo and probably
tried to write to a string constant when the corruption occurred.

The entire kit of parts is available from Digikey for about $55, the edition
of the book I bought included a PC board. Since I have been building all my
life, I felt assembling the kit would be drudgery to me. Last I heard, Dr.
Peatman is loading the bootloader to your chip for free, details on the web
site.

This setup works so good That I would like to acquire something like it for
a 16F628.

Program & try cycles are very fast.

It is a good fit for me because its potential exceeds my grasp.

I reported the corruption to the webmaster and received an email from Dr
Peatman. I feel that he would consider an imitator to be flattering.
