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.
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
