Acknowledgements – Designing Embedded Systems with PIC Microcontrollers, 2nd Edition

Acknowledgements
Grateful acknowledgements to all who have corresponded with me by email about the book and the Derbot project. Your comments are hugely important and this second edition has benefited from them. Thanks to those students at the University of Derby who have taken the Embedded Systems module over the years and who have taken part in the Derbot Challenge event in recent years. Your good humour, energy and inventiveness are a great source of inspiration. Thanks again to staff at Microchip Technology who have answered numerous questions, both technical and on copyright and related issues. Especial thanks to Tom Spenceley, Derby graduate and currently Research Assistant at the University. Tom has painstakingly read all the draft chapters and come up with many corrections and refinements. Any oversights that remain are, however, mine. Finally my greatest thanks are to my family, which has grown only by the addition of a small puppy, Rosie, since the first edition was written. My thanks and love to all of them. They keep the dedication for the second edition!
