Pascal: Strongly Typed language. Much more difficult to write incomprehensible code. C makes it easy to write incomprehensible gibberish.
I am currently getting a fractal diplay running on the STM32F4 discovery (Embest). The code for the original STM32F4 board (by ST (Keil?) I presume) is not well documented -- so much of it is incomprehensible. Getting it running takes guesswork as well as C knowledge.
It's harder to hide things in Pascal. It seems to require a more organized approach. It is not foregiving for bad programing -- which is good in my mind.
Well, for the past few years ST has been putting a lot of resources into the ST-Ericcson partnership. So there's been a cutback on R&D and support that is showing up in small ways.
The company says it anticipates high-definition video for home security and other uses will be the next mature technology integrated into the IoT domain, hence the introduction of its MatrixCam devkit.
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
