Abstract

This text is a treatise on microcontroller programming. It introduces the major peripherals found on most microcontrollers, including the usage of them, focusing on the ATmega644p in the AVR family produced by Atmel. General information and background knowledge on several topics is also presented. These topics include information regarding the hardware of a microcontroller and assembly code as well as instructions regarding good program structure and coding practices. Examples with code and discussion are presented throughout. This is intended for hobbyists and students desiring knowledge on programming microcontrollers, and is written at a level that students entering the junior level core robotics classes would find useful.
