Guidelines to minimize ROM and RAM usage in low-end embedded systems

Introduction Both ROM and RAM strongly determine the cost of an MCU. And therefor, for an embedded developer, it is important to regard it as valuable resources. Especially for high-volume products (e.g. MCU’s for cars) for which cheap hardware is important, it is crucial to optimize ROM and RAM usage. In this post we assume the […]


Early Prototyping: ‘blink those leds’

A bottom-up or a top-down approach? In order to be able to try something out, to proof something is technically viable, it is absolutely necessary to do early prototyping and provide ‘POTs’. A Proof Of Technology is just substantiating that there is a potential solution to a technical problem: We must emphasize that it is […]
