Microcontrollers

Arduino

Microcontrollers are everywhere, from children’s toys and your TV remote control to your motorcar and implantable medical devices. There is no escaping the wide variety of microcontrollers out there and the myriad of applications they can inhabit and the effects that they have on our lives.

A Microcontroller is a self-contained system, containing a processor, memory and peripherals and is designed to provide real-time responses to the embedded system that they are controlling.

8-bit. 16-bit, 32-bit, flash memory, Ram size, input and output lines, supply voltage and speed, microcontrollers come in many shapes and sizes and with differing abilities, what one will you use in your latest design project?
