What's a Microcontroller
A microcontroller is a microprocessor with integrated hardware peripherals (such as SPI, UART, I2C, ADC) and memory (usually RAM and flash). Compared to microprocessors, they boot instantly, consume less power and are easier to integrate into products but typically present firmware development challenges.
5 Questions to Ask before Building a New Product
Do you have an idea for an amazing product that will change the world? There is a lot of work between having that idea and actually changing the world. Here are a few questions you should ask yourself before you dive in.
Ohms Law and Microcontroller GPIO
Ohm’s law is the basis for building simple DC circuits. Many microcontroller applications are built on this simple equation. Ohm’s law states the voltage drop across a resistor is equal to the current through the resistor multiplied by the resistance or V=IR.
