I used this textbook in my college level microcontroller course. The book is easy to understand and covers key areas like: ADC/DAC, Timers, serial port programming, ALU, LCD and keyboard interfacing. I like that chapter review questions are organized according to the sub-chapter they are in. The book also includes a chapter 0 for anyone that needs to refresh their knowledge on basic computing knowledge like logical operations or converting numbers between decimal and hexadecimal.
Had to buy this for my Introduction to Microcontrollers class and I gotta say it isn't bad. Not bad at all. Gives a general introduction to the workings of microcontrollers using the HCS12, explaining how registers work, how to properly use memory and more. It starts out with some simple loading instructions and addition using Assembly and goes on to data serialization, DAC, timers and more. Paired with a Dragon 12+ development board, you can't go wrong.
Well written and easy to understand. This was purchased as a textbook for a college level course. What was missing from the lecture was easily found in the textbook. Well worth the investment.
Great book. I borrowed the book first then had to purchase it. The authors are amazing with how they basically walk you through step-by-step and help you to put labs together.
