Description [Hide]


Making PIC-based Laboratory Instruments and Controllers by Harprit Singh Sandhu is a hands on tutorial and resource book that teaches you how to build your own instruments and controllers using PICBasic on PIC Microcontrollers.

Mr. Sandhu brings his unique world-skills to bear on another PIC-based book, this time aimed on connecting your PIC to real-world measurements and sensors. This 316 page coil-bound book is laid out in a very clear manner that makes it an excellent reference or textbook. Want to know precisely what it covers? Here's the table of contents:

  • Preface
  • Introduction to the MeLabs LAB X-1 Board
  • The Hardware and Software Set Up
  • Understanding the PIC 16F877A Chip
  • Software, Compilers and Editors
  • Controlling the Input and Output
  • Timers and Counters
  • Sockets U3 to U8 (Clocks and Memory)
  • Sockets U9 and U10 (Serial Communications)
  • Liquid Crystal Displays
  • Using Sensors
  • Conditioning the Input Signal
  • Conditioning the Output Signal
  • Introduction to the 8 projects
  • The instruments
  • Counting pulses (a programmable tachometer)
  • Creating accurate time intervals (the metronomes)
  • Counting marbles (counting with 2 methods)
  • Dual thermometer with inhibit (National Semi LM34 Temperature Sensors)
  • Artificial horizon table (servos & Memsic 2125 accelerometers)
  • Eight button beam-break Touch Panel (IR LED / phototransistors)
  • Single set-point controller (temperature control)
  • Solar collector data logging (temperature / fan control)
  • Debugging
  • Some real-world projects you can build
  • Appendices
    • Setting up programmer
    • Abbreviations
    • Sample Programmers by ME Labs
    • Sample Programs in this book
    • Notes on designing a Battery Monitor
    • CDROM contents

Although not necessary, this book is well assisted by the use of the Microengineering Labs Lab-X1 experimenter's board, and the PIC16F877a microcontroller.
