Thanks again,

Hello Peter,

...... The PIC training course I received from you last year was of great help in my University course and I attained a High mark for my fourth year Project......

Hi,

Just thought I'd let you know that I have just started the course book and am really enjoying the progress I'm making - so far everything seems to be very well balanced and challenging and the mist is beginning to clear! The text is very well written and at a good pace. I'm running the assembler software on an iMac using Windows 7 in a virtual machine (Parallels) and everything works a treat

Many thanks,

Have you checked your programmer driver functioning in Windows 10? I am getting a lot of serial link timing out indications. Your instructions generally work but things are not as smooth as they were under Windows 8.1.
MK (Canada)

Peter Brunning replies...... When using Windows 10 you must always start the Brunning Software assembler running before switching on the programmer module. This is not a problem as it is the usual way of using the system. If you do turn the programmer on first you may get a HARDWARE NOT REPLYING error in the programming software.

Thanks for your help. I now have it working (with Windows 10). The price you quote for the (PIC32 update with the) adaptor (for use with my P931 programmer) is reasonable. I would like to order one.
MK (Canada)

Peter Brunning replies...... Airmail postage to Canada (or USA) for the PIC32 update with just book 4 and the adaptor is 13.00 GBP without tracking or 18.00 GBP with tracking. I will ask PayPal to send you a payment request.

Hi Peter,

Just to let you know I had a reasonable play with the P942 training course over the weekend. I am not new to programming or electronics. I have been in the industry for 38 years so I did not buy the kit specifically for myself but for a friend who repairs controllers in ...... which are based on the PIC and asked if I could help him with the reprogramming of the PICs, so after looking at a few different kits. I settled for yours. I have found it to be well organised and easy to follow even a beginner would have no problems. Whilst I have done little programming with the new series of PICs your kit has inspired,me to come up with some ideas in which I can custom make PICs for ....... since they are becoming the craze over here. I am looking forward to exploring the kit in more detail.

Regards,

Hi Peter,

I am nearing completion of your P942 course which I have found instructive and enjoyable. I have today placed an order for your PICs and Power extension course.

I want in the very near future to purchase your Book 2 including Radio PCB, and PIC controlled Plant Propagator. Please send me the ordering information.

Regards,

Hi Peter,

I bought your pic training course about 10 years ago and found it to be very good indeed. I now have a younger sibling who is showing a keen interest and so I was hoping to pass on the course to him, however, I realise that things have moved on quite a bit in the intervening years! Having a browse through your website I notice that you offer a programmer upgrade option, which is great news! So essentially I would like to take advantage of the upgrade offer and in addition purchase the latest course books. I was wondering if you could give me a quote for this?

Kind regards,

Hi,

Having most of my experience of high level programming languages and IDEs, assembly is, as I expected, a real eye opener, but the agility of it is interesting.....

I am enjoying the course (P182 parts 1 & 2), not dry at all and not having to faff about on the bread board just to setup a circuit to understand one concept is a huge bonus.

Dear Peter,

Having taught for 15 years at Natal University, part of which involved Electronics, you might be interested in some feedback on how I have used your course......

If you want anyone to endorse your teaching method please feel free to ask me. I am most grateful for all your input.

Kind regards

Hello Peter,

Many thanks for your help........

Just to let you know: I'm enjoying the course and books (PH28 training course), particularly the Visual C# component.

Dear Peter,

I have received the package 2 weeks ago and Iím very pleased with it, it allows me to get up to speed with PICís very quickly. Iím especially happy with the BSPWA-16F simulator, which proves to be a great training tool......

BSPWA-18F
I really enjoy the BSPWA-16F simulator. It would have been a great asset if a similar simulator was available for the 18F picís.
(Note: The 18F simulator was added a few weeks after this email arrived - a free update was sent to Robert).

Kind Regards,
Robert (Netherlands)

Just wanted to say how pleased I am with the P927 PIC Training Course. Was a little dubious but as soon as I set the kit up I have nothing but respect, it is great, fun and enjoyable. The great thing is it is so easily understandable from the books!

Can't endorse it enough ! best investment I ever made !

Many thanks !

Hi Peter,

I have worked my way through your Visual C# package that was bought for me at Christmas. I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I just can't leave it alone, it's certainly motivated & inspired me.

I did a Visual BASIC course (previously) & really struggled with it. Visual BASIC is pretty useless for maths & graphics functions in my opinion.

Kind Regards

Dear Peter,

Just a short message to say that both parcels arrived safely on 10th February.

I am most impressed with the quality both of the hardware and the manuals, as well as your approach to the teaching of the subject matter. I can offer no greater compliment than to say they are on a par with the original 'Applesoft Tutorial' which undoubtably was the main reason for the early success of the old Apple II computer......

Many thanks,

Hello Peter,

Thank you for the delivery of the PIC training & development system P801. I was pleased with the ease that the system set up and found myself into the course before I realised.

I feel I must add to your list of E-Mail congratulating you on your PIC course. I have been teaching electronic systems for more years than I'm willing to admit and have found your course most instructive and interesting.

Regards

Hi Peter,

Thanx for the response. It is really good to have an "expert" I can ask for help when the going gets real tough. I really appreciate you coming back to me as quickly as you did.

After much design and testing with a scope I have decided to totally redesign my data transmission portion. I have changed to use interrupts and hardware flow control. Now the good time starts...writing the code and testing it. My first attempt early last week really showed my inexperience in modem comms but I have spent the weekend really testing every aspect I could dream up and am now confident I should get the results I am looking for.

Thanx once again for the help.

Best regards,
Dave (South Africa)

The Exp With PIC16F877 (serial edition) with programmer was received on 22.4.2004. Thanks for the very quick delivery...................

Your study materials are the best anyone can get anywhere in the world. Thank you for the excellent work.

Thanks and best regards

Peter Brunning replies......Thank you for letting me know that the goods have arrived, and thank you for your good comments. It is satisfying to know that the work is appreciated.

Neville purchased our original PIC training system in May 2001 and has now purchased the latest version.

Hello,

I received your wonderful learning kit about 3 weeks ago, although, it just came back into my hands. One of my colleagues "borrowed" it. He has high praise.

The delivery was spectacular. Your learning kit arrived more rapidly than some electronic components I ordered at the same time from here in the US.

Thanks, Ron (USA)

Ron's PIC Training and Development System was despatched Thursday 26th February 2004 and arrived the following Monday 1st March 2004. But do bear in mind that delivery times vary according to the delay in USA customs.
