Welcome to Granz-Tronix, where we are helping to build a better engineer.
This book and kit were designed to answer the question: how do I get started in microcontrollers? Now, in clear, simple English, you can learn what a microcontroller is, and how to use one. Everything that you need to get started is included (requires Windows PC with at least one USB port) in this one low-cost kit, including the introductory text book.
In seven easy sections, you will learn:
All of the components, including the microcontroller itself, are included on the small development printed circuit board (PCB.) You will even get a battery case, but you only need a battery if you want to set up a stand-alone system - all of the experiments may be completed with the power from the computer's USB port.
Your introduction text book, including the assembly instructions, all quizzes and answers and the sample programs, may be downloaded from our web site - the location will be included in the kit.
Uses 4 AA sized cells (not included) for the battery.
There is a growing collection of projects/educational posts on our blog. You can take a look at: http://projects.granzeier.com/category/projects/2313-es-projects/. Keep checking back, we haven't been as diligent as we should, but we are trying to update our project blog on a weekly basis.
If you have a large parts drawer, and would like to build your own, you may check out our Instructable at: http://www.instructables.com/id/Learn-About-Microcontrollers/.

Welcome to the Granzeier Consulting Tindie Store. I am Art Granzeier, and my company produces kits and packs for budding engineers. Most of my target market is (supposed to be) high-school, college and young adult students who are interested in, or are working in EE (electronic engineering.) My secondary market (or at least it should be secondary - but mostly this is my primary market, at least until I get going enough to market to schools and school groups) is electronics/robotics hobbyists and non-electronics engineers who want to learn more about the electronics discipline.
I have a few text books that are nearly done, and a few more that are on their way. Once these are done, they will be offered with appropriate kits which will cover the lab work for the course. My ideal here is to get to be like the old Heathkit courses (on a more modern point, Andy Lindsay, from Parallax, does a pretty darned good job of writing, and I try to emulate him, with my own slant/point of view, somewhat.) I have been teaching, professionally, on and off since 1989, and have written a lot of my own course/quiz/exam material, so that is what I am using for my textbooks.
We ship, at least, every Monday and Thursday. Heavy ordering will prompt additional shipments.
