Assembly for PICmicro microcontrollers V5 contains a complete course in programming the PICmicro microcontroller from Microchip. It starts with fundamental concepts and extends up to complex programs including watchdog timers, interrupts, A/D conversion and sleep modes.
The CD makes use of the latest simulation techniques which provide a superb tool for learning: the Virtual PICmicro microcontroller. This is a simulation tool that allows users to write and execute assembly code for a 16-series microcontroller on the screen. Using this, students can actually see what happens inside the PIC microcontroller as each instruction is executed. This enhances understanding and retains student interest.
The CD-ROM contains the virtual PIC microcontroller, an IDE, as well as the complete course in HTML. Students can use the 16F1937, 16F88, 16F84 and the 16F877A devices whilst using the course. The CD-ROM contains all the resources you need for teaching, and learning PICmicro programming in assembly code.
The Assembly for PICmicro microcontrollers CD-ROM includes an assembler and communication package that allows you to download each tutorial program onto an optional training and development board.

Optional Hardware for Hands-on Training The lessons in this tutorial make specific reference to the E-blocks PIC multiprogrammer and the old HP488 PIC Training and Development Board. The new EB083 Development Board is a functional replacement for the HP488 when used with the multiprogrammer. You also could use your own programmer and development board with a PIC16F1937 MCU to perform the lessons if your board has the applicable components.
You can also order the PIC Assembler Tutorial bundled with compatible hardware at a significant discount.
