Summary and Info
A hands-on introduction to microcontroller project design with dozens of example circuits and programs. Presents practical designs for use in data loggers, controllers, and other small-computer applications.About The Microcontroller Idea Book:Complete circuit schematics and parts lists so you can easily build the circuits yourselfDesign theory - with tips on how to expand or modify the circuits shownExample program listings - for convenient testing of the circuitsConstruction and debugging tips - to help you get everything up and running without problemsVendor listings - so you can find the components and other items you need for your projectsAbout the 8052-BASICExample circuits and programs in the book are based on the popular 8052-BASIC microcontroller, whose on-chip BASIC programming language makes it easy to write, run, and test your programs. With over 100 commands, instructions, and operators, the BASIC-52 interpreter can do much more than other single-chip BASICs. Its abilities include floating-point math, string handling, and special commands for storing programs in EPROM, EEPROM, or battery-backed RAM.You can use any computer with a serial port as a host system for writing, uploading, running, debugging, and storing programs as you develop a project. When project development is complete, you can disconnect the host computer, and the 8052-BASIC will run your program automatically on bootup. You can also use an 8052-BASIC circuit as a development system for uploading and debugging assembled or compiled programs. As a member of the 8051 microcontroller family, the 8052-BASIC uses a standard, populararchitecture.
