I have only just started programming with AVR and was looking for a book that would help me. After reading other reviews I decided to buy this book - and I'm glad that I did.

It starts off with an introduction to embedded C, moves on to discuss the Atmel AVRs and concludes with a chapter on developing a project from scratch. But, what's good is that it starts off from the basics with plenty of explanations (so if you've never done anything with AVRs before, then this is for you), and moves on to the complex stuff later.

The book covers almost every topic you would want, so you can always use the book as a reference later. There is a comprehensive Appendix in the back too which lists the various C functions and Atmel instruction sets.

My only complaint is that the book dedicates to much space on the CodeVision C Compiler (there is a whole chapter on using the IDE, and several references are made to it throughout the book). It's a pity that there is no mention of the AVR-GCC Compiler - since it's free!!

Overall, this is an excellent book, that I would definately recommend to anyone starting off with programming the Atmel AVR microprocessors.

This is a great book, it starts with embedded c in general and takes you right through the motions explaining what everything does. The best thing, for me, was that almost everything explained is shown in code, but not just a snippet of a program, a small program which will work if you type it into the compiler. This means if you've missed something obvious, which is so easy to do in this kind of thing, its easy to spot.
I've done some Assembler programming before, but i'm new to the AVR and C, this book is perfect for beginners. It explains the AVR's peripherals very well and has a full chapter on project planning, construction and completion.

If you're final year project requires AVR programming in C, like mine does, this book is ESSENTIAL, don't bother with any of the others.
It focuses around the Codevision compiler, which isn't free, but a demo of it is included with the book. I've used GCC and Codevision now, and i have to say i much prefer the Codevision compiler.. it shows where the brackets link up which makes parenthesis mistakes easy to spot.

Although intended for the ATMEL AVR processors, most embedded processor systems are pretty similar from a C programming point of view, so the knowledge gained could be used with other processors.

Not bad & reasonably priced.

This is a truly excellent book for anyone who wants to learn how to write embedded C programs for microcontrollers (especially the Atmel AVR micros).

I would highly recommend this book! It's the best book on embedded programming I have come across yet.

Its good...It has C examples but, it could have better examples, and easier laguage.

Worth a buy though.
