Book Description

This book aims to develop professional and practical microcontroller applications in the ARM-MDK environment with Texas Instruments MSP432P401R LaunchPad kits. It introduces ARM Cortex-M4 MCU by highlighting the most important elements, including: registers, pipelines, memory, and I/O ports. With the updated MSP432P401R Evaluation Board (EVB), MSP-EXP432P401R, this MCU provides various control functions with multiple peripherals to enable users to develop and build various modern control projects with rich control strategies. Micro-controller programming is approached with basic and straightforward programming codes to reduce learning curves, and furthermore to enable students to build embedded applications in more efficient and interesting ways. For authentic examples, 37 Class programming projects are built into the book that use MSP432P401R MCU. Additionally, approximately 40 Lab programming projects with MSP432P401R MCU are included to be assigned as homework.

Dr. Ying Bai is a professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, North Carolina. His special research interests include intelligent controls, soft computing, mixed-language programming, fuzzy logic controls, robotic controls, robots calibrations, and fuzzy multicriteria decision-making. He has had industry experience in software and senior software engineer positions at companies such as Motorola MMS, Schlumberger ATE Technology, Immix Telecom, and Lam Research.

Dr. Bai has published approximately 50 academic research papers in IEEE Trans. Journals and international conferences. He has also published 13 books with publishers such as Prentice Hall, CRC Press LLC, Springer, Cambridge University Press, and Wiley IEEE Press in recent years. The Russian translation of his first book titled Applications Interface Programming Using Multiple Languages was published by Prentice Hall in 2005. The Chinese translation of his eighth book titled Practical Database Programming with Visual C#.NET was published by Tsinghua University Press in China at the end of 2011. His books cover interfacing software programming, serial port programming, database programming, and fuzzy logic controls in industrial applications, as well as microcontroller programming and applications.


"This textbook provides a systemic, complete introduction and discussion about MSP432 MCU components and implementations, including most popular peripherals, with over 70 projects. It supplies plenty of learning and teaching materials in each chapter with homework assignments, exercises, class projects, lab projects, and MS PPT slides, which are convenient for college students and instructors.

This is the first textbook that provides such complete and up-to-date materials on MSP432 MCU for college students and professional programmers, which provides a shortcut between what to learn in school and what fundamentals are needed in the market in the related technical fields.

In short, this is a textbook that provides the up-to-date and complete learning materials that can help students learn this kind of technical knowledge in a practical way and be better prepared for the application market fields in engineering or information technology, in which micro-computers and micro-controllers are widely used."

"Clear and concise with detailed, well thought out topics, applications, and graphics. Dr. Bai provides a very detailed explanation of the hardware and its application, which aids to a rapid understanding of the MPS432 microcontroller. The use of the MPS432P401R MCU-based EVB as a common core for the development of software and hardware applications provides a stable platform with consistent results in the classroom."
