This book provides practicing scientists and engineers a tutorial on the fundamental concepts and use of microcontrollers. Today, microcontrollers, or singleintegrated circuit (chip) computers, play critical roles in almost all instrumentation and control systems. Most existing books are written for undergraduate and graduate students taking an electrical and/orcomputer engineering course. Furthermore, these texts have been written with a particular model of microcontroller as the target discussion. These textbooks also require a requisite knowledge ofdigital design fundamentals. This textbook presents the fundamental concepts common to all microcontrollers. Our goals are to present the over-arching theory of microcontroller operation and to provide a...
