C Programming for Microcontrollers by Joe Pardue

By Joe Pardue

Do you need a cost-efficient strategy to study C programming for microcontrollers? This booklet indicates you the way to take advantage of Atmel’s $19.99 AVR Butterfly board and the loose WinAVR C compiler to make a really reasonably cheap process for utilizing C to improve microcontroller tasks.

Students will locate the thorough insurance of C defined within the context of microcontrollers to be a useful studying aide. pros, even those that already be aware of C, will locate many beneficial established software program and examples that would pace their improvement paintings.

In addition to an in-depth assurance of C, the ebook has tasks for:• Port I/O analyzing switches and blinking LEDs• UART verbal exchange with a laptop• utilizing interrupts, timers, and counters• Pulse Width Modulation for LED brightness and motor velocity keep an eye on• making a actual Time Clock• Making tune• ADC: Analog to electronic Conversion• DAC: electronic to Analog Conversion• Voltage, mild, and temperature size• creating a sluggish functionality Generator and electronic Oscilloscope• liquid crystal display programming• Writing a Finite country computing device

CD comprises all of the resource code, the loose WinAVR C compiler, AVRStudio, and many different worthy issues.

Example text

Teletypes send and receive characters so a lot of C, especially the standard library, is character oriented. The number of bits in a char is machine dependent, but in all machines I’ve encountered including the AVR, a char is an 8-bit byte which can have 256 bit states. The computer uses this byte of data as representing a signed value from –128 to + 127. The ASCII code was extended to include characters for 128 to 255 primarily to do weird European characters, math symbols, and character graphics on early PCs.

For example: for(int i = 1; i <= 128; i = i*2) { PORTD = ~i; _delay_loop_2(30000); } This groups the two inner statements to be run depending on the condition of the ‘for’ statement. Operators Operators are symbols that tell the compiler to do things such as set one variable equal to another, the ‘=’ operator, as in ‘DDRB = 0xFF' or the ‘++’ operator for adding 1, as in ‘counter++’. Flow Control Flow control statements dictate the order in which a series of actions are preformed. For example: ‘for’ causes the program to repeat a block.

H> The ‘#include’ is a preprocessor directive that instructs the compiler to find the file in the <> brackets and tack it on at the head of the file you are about to compile. h provides the definitions for the delay function we call. Expressions, Statements, and Blocks Expressions are combinations of variables, operators, and function calls that produce a single value. For example: PORTD = 0xFF – counter++ 39 Chapter 3: A Brief Introduction to C – What Makes Blinky Blink? This is an expression that sets the voltage on pins on Port D to +3v or 0v based on the value of the variable ‘counter’ subtracted from 0xFF (a hex number - we’ll learn about these and ports later).
