LHFSD is a book unlike any other! It covers the title topics in an incredible manner, and everything WORKS! --Corollary Theorems May, 2005
This book is a Practical Design Project and it contains 3 Parts: 1.Hardware Design guides the reader towards building the LHFSD PCB with a Microchip dsPIC30F4011 microcontroller running at 80MHz. Various hardware modules are built, one at a time, and they are thoroughly explained. 2.Firmware design uses the Microchip C30 compiler. 10 Projects are built, entirely in C, and they test all hardware modules designed in Part 1. 3.Software Design is developed using Microsoft Visual Basic 6. The 7 software Applications developed take control over firmware, and the implement additional, increased functionality.
LEARN HARDWARE FIRMWARE AND SOFTWARE DESIGN by O G Popa it is not just another technical book: it is a book unique in the entire World! No book has ever spanned through microcontroller hardware design, C firmware design, and high-level language software programming, all working, and all presented as a single working unit, in one book.
In fact LHFSD is a tutorial book, because it explains everything step-by-step, in details, and one topic at a time. Each new Chapter adds gradually to the previously built modules, and it is tested for proper functionality. The incredible about the LHFSD book is, it is a good, working, practical design project, and not senseless, useless theory you can find on the Internet or in hundreds other books. This book teaches you true, valuable skills, for today's demanding world. Designing with microcontrollers is in great demand these days, and it is going to be even more in the future. Learning this technology will increase your chances of employment or, even better, you could design a useful commercial product and become an employer yourself!
