PIC® MCU Intro to C Books
C What Happens by David Benson
C What Happens is a series of explanations and examples for those who want to learn to program PIC® microcontrollers using the C programming language. It is assumed that the reader has no knowledge of PIC® microcontrollers or programming, but does have a rudimentary understanding of electronics. The reader will learn to create programs by making selections from a large variety of built-in functions provided in the CCS C Compiler, writing his/her own functions as needed, and writing executable statements. The reader will "C what happens" by programming a PIC® microcontroller with the newly created code and exercising it using a simple circuit described in the book. The subject matter is laid out in a logical progression from simple to not-so-simple and is illustrated with numerous examples using the PIC16F818 device. This book pairs well with the CCS PIC16F818 Prototyping Board.
Intro to PIC® C by Nigel Gardner
This book is aimed towards those who do not know the C language. The basics of C are explained from the perspective of writing programs for PIC® MCUs. Although there are many C starter books, most assume a the target is a PC. PIC® MCU programming is different even though the language is the same. This book includes examples that work with the CCS C compiler.
