Professor Mohamed Rafiquzzaman, electrical and computer engineering, published the book, “Microcomputer Theory and Applications with the PIC18F” in 2011. The book is written for students who have a background in C language and digital logic-both combinational and sequential-design. It is written in a simplified manner to present the fundamental concepts of assembly and C language programming and interfacing techniques associated with typical microcontrollers. Practitioners of microcontroller-based applications will find more simplified explanations, together with examples and comparison considerations, than are found in manufacturers’ manuals.
Rafiquzzaman obtained his doctoral degree in electrical engineering in Canada in 1974. He worked for Esso/Exxon and Bell Northern Research for approximately five years. Rafiquzzaman has also taught at USC and consulted for ARCO, Rockwell, Los Angeles County and Ralph M. Parsons Corporation.
