In the second episode of the microcontroller tutorial I take a look at the various programmers and target boards I want to use for the tutorial. While the target boards are only really needed to get started, the programmers(/debuggers) are going to stay with us throughout the entire series.
Getting started with microcontrollers isn’t exactly easy. This video is the first of a series of episodes that give a somewhat non-standard introduction; not only do I take a comparative approach, examining the Atmel AVR, Microchip PIC and Texas Instruments MSP430 families in parallel, I also use Linux and various open source development tools (with […]
