Atmel's AVR microcontrollers are the chips that power Arduino, and are the go-to chip for many hobbyist and hardware hacking projects. In this book you'll set aside the layers of abstraction provided by the Arduino environment and learn how to program AVR microcontrollers directly. In doing so, you'll get closer to the chip and you'll be able to squeeze more power and features out of it.

Each chapter of this book is centered around projects that incorporate that particular microcontroller topic. Each project includes schematics, code, and illustrations of a working project.

"Great look behind the Arduino-System" - by MichaelHarms on 05-JUN-2014

I really enjoy this book. It explains very well what is going on behind the arduino-system. The knowledge from this book, opens for me the use of the smaller Atmel-Chips, for the use in much smaller projects, where an Arduino is an overkill. I really recommend this book for anybody, who wants to extend his/her possibillities working with these chips and learning a little bit C.
