Intro to Microcontroller Programming Course with Lab

Whether you’ve never written a single word of code or you’ve been doing it for years, this trainer package will give you a thorough introduction to Microcontroller Programming.

The microcontroller used on the board is the PIC16F1937 from Microchip. The programming language is BASIC using the PICBASIC PRO Compiler from ME Labs. The programming skills you develop here will apply to any microcontroller in any programming language.

- Compatible with Windows 7/8/10

- Learn the fundamental concepts of programming, from plain-English descriptions of software tools to concepts including program flow, loops, coding techniques, binary manipulation, device-to-device communication, user-interface design, and more

- 14 Lessons use a building-block approach to teach you incrementally, from a 6-line program to a working user-interface

- Tutorial assumes no prior knowledge of programming

- All necessary hardware and software included, all you need is a computer with a standard USB port

- Includes real development tools and technology that professional engineers use, including PICBASIC PRO(tm) Compiler and a PICMicro(R) microcontroller

- Includes a Student Edition of PBP which supports a limited selection of devices (12F683, 16F688, 16F690, 16F88, 16F886, 18F25K20, 18F25K22, 18F2550, 16F1937)

- Program in simple BASIC language while learning concepts that can be applied to any programming language on any hardware platform

Each chapter will serve to introduce one or two new concepts and in many cases will also incorporate lessons from previous chapters.  The exercises offered at the end of each chapter are designed to challenge you to put into practice the lessons from both that chapter as well as those from previous chapters. 

As with any language, proficiency comes from practice, and the more engaged you become in the exercises the more fluent you’ll become with PICBASIC PRO!
