4.0 étoiles sur 5 Contains some very good information 16 décembre 2011

This is a very good book for someone looking to get started with PIC mcu's. I will warn you up front, the book uses ~$500us in products to get you started driving small motors with PIC's. It uses the PIC BASIC PRO compiler, which is about ~$250us, and an experimenters board from the same company. You do not need to spend this much to get your systems up and running, but the BASIC language is geared for beginners. Microchip gives out their IDE, MPLAB, for free and lite versions of their C language compilers. The term "lite" refers only to the lack of code optimization, other than that they seem to be full featured. I personally use Mplab X, in Linux fedora, and it seems to work fine. Microchip actually sells a couple of inexpensive development tools, most notably the microstick ( ~$25us ), but they also have a new line of arduino compatible devices that can be reflashed to use as a pic platform. You can even breadboard a microcontroller, and just buy an Mplab compatible programmer. The PicKit2 is a very popular model, and somewhat open source, but it will not program Pic32 parts like the PicKit 3 will.

... Now back to the book because that is really what reviews are all about.

I got a lot of great information from reading this book. Even though I program in C, this book offers a great deal of insight as to the algorithms needed to design a motor control system. This book also gives great details about the internal layout of the PIC. I think it is a must read for anyone interested in learning about the PIC microcontroller. I would have easily given it 5 stars, but I do not like the fact it is written around the BASIC language. The C language is really easy to understand, and I think there may actually be less commands, but I could be slightly biased. Once you have learned one language, it is easy to learn more...

I recommend reading "The C Programming Language. second edition" ISBN-10: 0131103628 ISBN-13: 978-0131103627

It is only 274 pages, but there is a lot of great information contained inside, not to mention the book was written by the creator of the language! For a free compiler to use with the examples in the book, I would recommend GCC, which is available at A quick web search should put you in the right direction.

Sorry to be so winded, but I just want to make sure you know what you are getting into.

Good luck with the wonderful world of microcontrollers and embedded systems.

It's 2012 and the book was written in 2009. The company that made the Xavien 2-axis controller the author recommends seems to be focused on the rocket hobby now (the controller is still available from a user at [...])and the LAB-X1 development board is still available at [...] (the website must have changed). Even though you can successfully use any PIC development board and controller, the beginning user should try and start off following the author closely. The more advanced user is probably better off with a more recent development board.

For the beginner this is a good book to start with. The first half of the book is devoted to understanding the PIC MCU's, PICBASIC PRO BASIC, and the getting the LAB-X1 set up. Yes, the first program is blinking LED's. Then the stuff about controlling motors starts (on page 163).

The more experienced user starts here. If you've used a MCU before start here and skim the first parts. At the lower end the user can continue with PICBASIC and work through the examples for each type of motor. This user probably already has his own development board and is using MPLAB.

The advanced user might be disappointed. There's no motor theory or electromagnetic stuff (be grateful). This is a practical book. Turn the motor on, control its speed or position, and brake it. Each type of DC motor (servo, stepper, etc.) is covered. A couple of pages are focused on AC (not really a lot of interest to most users). Even though the examples are in PICBASIC, that's useful as a pseudo language to understand the concepts. Easily implemented in C by the advanced user. This user won't be on the edge of his chair but it's still worth a quick read and as a quick reference.

This book is for the electro-mechanically inclined person who is computer programming literate but not expert. It also lays out a direct path to expert results for the typical learner. Mr. Sandhu is an accomplished teacher.

I purchased this book from Amazon for Kindle in the midst of a serious hobbyist's search for exactly what the title offers. In a few minutes I began reading in earnest hoping to not be disappointed. To my gratification I found myself being led to exactly what I needed to know without the encumbrance of searching for answers to questions that kept popped into my head. From the other relevant reviews I see my experience is not unique. The first questions a reader like me will encounter are all about microcontrollers and how they work. Therefore I was grateful that I was provided the details of microcomputer ports, how they are structured in general, and how they are specific to every function that they support. Now I can manage to find the ports I need to relate to any set of functions available on any microcomputer. Subsequently the section on motors opened my eyes to the simple electrical principles that make them function. I am no longer intimidated by the wide array of connections among the classes of microcontrollers and the categories of motors. Complications are made manageable for the beginner and practical for the experimenter. I am beyond where I wanted to be in order to get started. I am also better prepared to interface microcontrollers to the vast array of sensors that provide information for intelligent motor control. Everything presented is in the practical terms that an experimenter can appreciate.

Update December 15 2011:

I wonder if rediscovering the wheel is the best way to learn how wheels work. In any case I spent the entire month making a program work based on the characteristics of the motor and the needs for my project. and was about to send it to the author for his comment. Then I reviewed the work I had done using the lessons from Chapter 15 of this book, and saw everything that I needed (but did not understand at the time) has already been published. I will always be grateful to have found a teacher who makes this complex subject fun to learn. My practical experience has been accelerated as I continue using the economical Model 100 with the PIC18F and motor with encoder.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Practical and relevant means to bring PIC, Basic, & Hardware to your useful ends 4 mars 2011

While "Running Small Motors with PIC..." by Harprit S. Sandhu is a short book bringing PicBasic Pro to your vision, your project and your will, I think you will find the time spent here well worth your while. One can spend a great deal of time in the company of PIC micro-controllers learning, thinking, doing whether this time is for hobby or professional applications.
Value, that's the message here, especially your time and resources; the PIC series covered runs from the 16F to the 18F relating to experimenting and configuring the LAB-X1 board and the 40 pin microcontrollers which run on it.
High performance dsPIC30 series chipsets are not specifically covered except PIC chips carry over from the earlier chipsets as they move on to the next iteration of chips. So, you can carry over a great deal of information from PIC bread-n-butter 16 and 18 series chips to the dsPIC series from here.
I don't see this book as merely a foray into instant gratification as its BASIC language and a packaged lab environment. After all, one can move on to higher performance dsPIC chips and bring this knowledge with you and other languages, like C. There is lots you can use in BASIC code examples and tweak to your needs or wants. Either as reference or tutorial, I keep this book where I can get to it.

For anyone using Microchip's PIC micro controllers in the real world this book is a complete two semester course on the subject. I have been working with Basic Stamps for more then 12 years and this book really opened up the power of the PIC micro controller for me. It is written in a simple (non-mathmatical) method that is very easy to follow. I was able to replace the Basic Stamps in my projects with PICs that cost 10 times less and run much faster. I can not overstate how Mr. Sandhu has pulled aside the veil and taken the mystery out of using the PIC for me. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in using micro controllers with out learning C or Assembly language. Very well done!
