Whether microcontrollers are being embedded into new applications that demand ease of use or in mature environments where performance increases are needed, design engineers are looking for more memory.
The ability to squeeze greater amounts of Flash on a controller is bringing significant benefits, letting developers shrink products or offer more features and functions. “More demanding requirements like advanced user interfaces and real-time operation are being addressed by expanded memory capabilities,” says Mark Buccini, marketing director, Advanced Embedded Controls at TI. When powerful processors are augmented by large amounts of memory and popular peripherals, system design becomes much simpler.

A middle school team from Rochester, Mich., has again nabbed the grand prize in the annual international Future City Competition, which drew students from 37 regions of the United States, as well as from England and China.
The word “smart” is becoming the dumbest word around. It has been applied to almost every device and system in our homes. In addition to smartphones and smart meters, we now hear about smart clothing and smart shoes, smart lights, smart homes, smart buildings, and every trendy city today has its smart city project. Just because it has a computer inside and is connected to the Web, does not mean it is smart.
Are you being paid enough? Do you want a better job? According to a recent survey Manpower released just before Engineers Week, employers and engineers don't see eye-to-eye about the state of US engineers' skills and experience.
