Used to do all SW in assembly but now almost exclusively C. I always felt it helps to know what is happening under the hood, although most of the time you can ignore it in C programming. Sometimes you do have to dig in deep. Most intros to new micros skip the low level stuff. It was good to see it here.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
