This is a recent addition to the Tab/McGraw-Hill lineup on how to use an AVR microcontroller. The AVR datasheets are fine, but they're not as useful as this book!


Description [Hide]

"Programming and Customizing the AVR Microcontroller" by Dhananjay Gadre is a pretty comprehensive guide to using the AVR microcontroller.

BOY there are lots of images in this book. And it seems to be written in a manner that is much more likely to sink in than confuse. It features quite a good number of examples, and even includes a CD of support material. Here's what the back jacket has to say about the features of this book:

  • Easy-to-use explanations of all the AVR's subsystems, with plenty of examples and experiments.
  • Handfuls of ready-to-try projects, plus useful routines to plug into your own design.
  • A confusion-reducing chapter on system design, and a complete AVR system development toolkit.
  • Hardware-software interfacing help.
  • AVR applications using assembly and C.
  • A guide to the best AVR on-line resources.
  • CD-ROM loaded with all the tools and source code you need to develop applications.

Sounds not bad, eh? I'm keeping this copy on my desk. The inventory guys will have to fight me for it...
Here's what the book's promo page says:
