Apply C to 8-bit Microprocessors for Efficient Development

Eager to transfer your C language skills to the 8-bit microcontroller embedded environment? This book will get you up and running fast with clear explanations of the common architectural elements of most 8-bit microcontrollers and the embedded-specific design regimens.

The C language makes any embedded programming task easier and more manageable. The advantages of C over assembly language include faster development, improved portability, and re-useability -- all of which reduce costs.

You can complete your first embedded system project with understandable, maintainable C code. More than a straightforward presentation of 8-bit MCU development principles, this book contains a demonstration project, complete with schematics, a parts list, and sample code. By working through the sample project, you will learn the details of device-specific hardware development -- from preliminary software design to implementation of a working, practical consumer product. You will learn firsthand the issues addressed by a C compiler, how to maintain device-independence, how to perform miracles in the limited resources of an 8-bit microcontroller, and how to test your embedded software.

The time is now! Embedded processors shipped during 1998 exceeded the number of those destined for desktop units. Industry projections indicate that embedded processors will outnumber PC processors by 3-to-1 by 2004. The significant majority of today's embedded systems rely on 8-bit microprocessors. Commonly used in automobiles and consumer products, 8-bit controllers are increasingly used in the newest controller applications, such as USB peripherals and Net-enabled appliances.
