Book Description

This book provides a careful explanation of the basic areas of electronics and computer architecture, along with lots of examples, to demonstrate the interface, sensor design, programming and microcontroller peripheral setup necessary for embedded development. With no need for mechanical knowledge of robots, the book starts by demonstrating how to modify a simple -controlled car to create a basic robot. The fundamental electronics of the MSP430 are described, along with programming details in both C and assembly language, and full explanations of ports, timing, and data acquisition. Further chapters cover inexpensive ways to perform circuit simulation and prototyping.

Key features include: 

  • Thorough treatment of the MSP430's architecture and functionality along with detailed application-specific guidance
  • Programming and the use of sensor to build an embedded system
  • A learn-by-doing experience

With this book you will learn:

  • The basic theory for electronics design
  • Analog circuits
  • Digital logic
  • Computer arithmetic
  • How to design and build a working robot
  • Assembly language and C programming
  • How to develop your own high- embedded systems application using an on-going robotics application
