Item description for Microcontrollers in Practice (Springer Series in Advanced Microelectronics) by M. Mitescu & I. Susnea...
Stressing common characteristics and real applications of the most used microcontrollers, this practical guide provides readers with hands-on knowledge of how to implement three families of microcontrollers (HC11, AVR, and 8051). Unlike the rest of the ocean of literature on individual chips, Microcontrollers in Practice supplies side-by-side comparisons and an overview that treats the systems as resources available for implementation. Packed with hundreds of practical examples and exercises to foster mastery of concepts and details, the guide also includes several extended projects. By treating the less expensive 8-bit and RISC microcontrollers, this information-dense manual equips students and home-experimenters with the know-how to put these devices into operation.

Reviews - What do customers think about Microcontrollers in Practice (Springer Series in Advanced Microelectronics)?
Great start book ... but not complete Dec 7, 2005
The book itself is very good for a semi-beginner. The three microcontroller families (HC11, AVR, 9051) are well described and so are the differences between them and the similarities. The first half of the book is dedicated to the description of the microcontrollers, while the second part is dedicated to some useful projects. The projects have some hardware explanations as well the software. The book is accompanied by a CD which has all the projects (hardware PCBs and ASM code).
The only thing i dont like in this book is that the hardware schematics are incomplete. The authors present some useful development boards, but as they dont have the values of all the components (although the PCBs are included on the CD and seem to be there for the reader to be able to build them at home), so the reader can not actually build any of this boards wich is a shame. I supposed that a book with this price would have things like this done correctly, but appareantly i was wrong.
