About this book
The Microchip PIC family of microcontrollers is the most popular series of microcontrollers in the world. However, no microcontroller is of any use without software to make it perform useful functions. This comprehensive reference focuses on designing with Microchip's mid-range PIC line using MBASIC, a powerful but easy to learn programming language. It illustrates MBASIC's abilities through a series of design examples, beginning with simple PIC-based projects and proceeding through more advanced designs. Unlike other references however, it also covers essential hardware and software design fundamentals of the PIC microcontroller series, including programming in assembly language when needed to supplement the capabilities of MBASIC. Details of hardware/software interfacing to the PIC are also provided.BENEFIT TO THE READER: This book provides one of the most thorough introductions available to the world's most popular microcontroller, with numerous hardware and software working design examples which engineers, students and hobbyists can directly apply to their design work and studies. Using MBASIC, it is possible to develop working programs for the PIC in a much shorter time frame than when using assembly language.* Offers a complete introduction to programming the most popular microcontroller in the world, using the MBASIC compiler from a company that is committed to supporting the book both through purchases and promotion* Provides numerous real-world design examples, all carefully tested* CD contains the source code files and executables, and will include a demo version of the MBASIC compiler, allowing engineers to work out the design exercises in the book

    0 4/5 LMR (Arizona) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: TMS® 30" Aerobic Step Aerobics Trainer Adjustable Exercise Fitness Workout Stepper (Misc.) I just used the stepper today. I'm happy that it arrived sooner than expected, and it meets my standards as a work-out apparatus. I subtracted one star because it did come slightly damaged (photo attached). It does not seem to affect the steps integrity, so I'd rather not go through the inconvenience of returning it. This is a packaging problem. If it had styrofoam or other packaging material at each end of the step this probably would not have happened. 0, October 26, 2015

    Wonderful product, easy to stay motivated!

    I bought this mini-elliptical after reading all the reviews on this and other similar products. I bought this item for three main reasons:1 - Low price2 - Small size3 - PortabilityI like the elliptical movement because I have bad ankles, and treadmills and steppers hurt me after a short time working out. I don't have room for a full-size elliptical machine in my house, and this turned out to be the perfect size. Plus, it's small size made it easy to move around the house to be where I wanted to use it. I like to work out while watching TV to keep my mind elsewhere and work out longer, and I can pull this machine (about 25lbs) in front of the TV in the living room to watch TV with family (yes, they laugh at me, but it's worth it), and then pull in front of my bed in the bedroom to watch a chick flick that no one else wants to watch. I even put my elliptical in front of my computer to watch Netflix movies online! It's easy to carry around.Another great... 5/5 N.

    15-Day Review

    Normally, I take reviews with a grain of salt. I work in advertising, so I'm well aware that companies often hire freelancers to write positive reviews for their products in order to improve sales. That said, I figured I would write an honest review after using this elliptical trainer for about half-a-month.I received the trainer on about the 20th of September and have been using it at least every other day since. It was extremely easy to piece together (I have put together a Bowflex Treadclimber in the past, as well as a StairMaster so this was practically nothing at five parts) and even easier to use. However, the stride IS significantly shorter than that of a standard health club elliptical--after about ten minutes of using the trainer, though, I didn't even notice the short stride.I bought the trainer as an alternative to running or biking outside since the cold weather is settling in and I wanted no excuses when it came to maintaining some sort of exercise... 4/5 Amazon Customer (Long Island, NY) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Yes, you can use this while sitting at your desk

    I read through every description and review I could find before I bought this because I wanted to know if I could use it at my desk while sitting and working. Nothing really answered that, so I got in anyway. And now, it is clear that this thing is the missing link in my fitness program. I'm basically sedentary for 8 hours a day at work. Not anymore. I did 14 miles on it yesterday and am up to 12 miles today, and it is only 11am.Here's the deal: Sit down at your desk with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground. If your feet aren't flat on the ground, lower your chair until they are. Now measure the distance between your knee and the desk (measure to the bottom of the workspace area, to see how much distance you have before your knees knock up against the desk when you lift them). If you measured 7 inches or more, you are fine and can get this thing with no problem. If you measured less than seven inches, take off your shoes and try again.

    The Step

    NOT the original! Very deceptive representation.

    0 1/5 Amazon Customer (Florida) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Original Health Club Step with Basic Step DVD (Sports) I bought two of these in the last two months. They may LOOK just like the original, but trust me, the new manufacturer really cuts corners. Both of our steps were very cheaply put together regarding the glue adhering the black mat to the step. In both cases, the mat came off the step while I was in med-step. The result was I tripped on it landing on my face with the first one. I sent that one back, ordered another one. The mat come unglued on the second one, too. And on the first day of use. Rather than go through that for a third time, I just bought a new step by Gold's Gym. It doesn't have a mat at all, which surprising, is comfortable and trip-proof. The original Rebok Step we had for over 10 years. After all that time, we never had trouble with the glue or the mat. Wish we never gave it away. The F1005 is very unsafe in our opinion. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 30, 2008

    0 5/5 The MonGoose - See all my reviews This review is from: The Original Health Club Step with Basic Step DVD (Sports) OK, so it's a trip down memory lane to begin with... this is the step that we first saw in use starting in the late '80s at the health and sports club that we taught aerobics at all over Southern California. Same step, same high quality. You can find a little cheaper step around, but this is the one that we all knew back when. This is the step that took all the abuse professional classes at high-end clubs could dish out and still look like new. Highly recommended, we love having this step: right height, right size, adjustable, strong as an ox and looks good too. The memory thing, that's just a bonus for us aerobic instructors out there. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 27, 2006

    ~ It has a variable max current from about 0mA/phase to 2A/phase, although I have tested it to 2.2A/phase with a heatsink and/or fan.
    ~ It is a chopper microstepping driver based on the Allegro A4988 driver chip. For the complete specs of the design, read the A4988 datasheet.
    ~ It can take a maximum motor drive voltage of around 35V, and includes on-board 5V/3.3V regulation, so only one supply is necessary.
    ~ (So if your motor is 200 full steps per revolution, you would get 3200 steps/rev using the Big Easy Driver.)
    ~ Each BigEasyDriver (BED) can drive up to about 2A per phase of a bi-polar stepper motor. It defaults to 16 step microstepping mode.

    My wife loves it!

    I bought this for my wife - who admittedly has a weakness for the latest exercise gadgets. But to her credit, she uses them all, and the few that don't meet her standard are swiftly carried off to be donated to the thrift store. I read reviews before buying this, and they were mixed. All reviews cited the good workout, but some talked highly of the quality, while others described it as "cheaply made." After receiving it and putting it together (amazingly easy - you can do it in 15 minutes - don't go looking in the box for all the listed bolts and screws - they're already installed) I was impressed with the heft and quality of the pieces. My only observation less than 100% positive is that, while there is no danger of it tipping over, it is not 100% stable (by that I mean "motionless") on carpet. It needs a solid floor, but it will in fact work on carpet.

    Easy workout. Watch out for sore knees.

    Pros and Cons:Pros - it folds together to store away. It comes with a digital tracker that shows calorie count. Nice and quiet so you can use it while watching TV.Cons - the foot petals are studded like the bottom of cleats so you can't use it barefooted. Use shoes or quality slippers with rubber bottom.Workout Impression: It works your legs pretty good as long as you have good posture. You can adjust your pull on the machine to work your arms too. You can work up a sweet pretty quickly. It's a light-weight workout meant for beginners to the average tone person. My boyfriend already goes to the gym and has a tone body - he says this doesn't give his arms enough workout (so it's not the "total body workout" experience for him). For me, a beginner - it gives me a good overall workout.Product Design: Lightweight, thin metal bars. Holds an adult male without strain. Quiet for the most part.
