Good point, Naperlou. TI has come out with a product that follows the trend of making complex industrial control tools less complex for the user. This not only speeds set up, it brings complex within reach for manufacturers who don't wish to hire an army of programmers.

Yes, Lou, I see what you mean and that's a good idea. I am sure there already is something out there, but I just haven't reported on it or know about it. I can't imagine TI or another microcontroller provider doesn't have something for general for this type of programming.

Simplifying a complex task

Elizabeth, nice article on a product that clearly will be very useful.  One aspect this brings to mind, though, is the specificity of the solution.  Many vendors have microcontrollers that can be used for motor control, among other uses.  I wonder what it would take to design a software package that could be more general.
