In this part we will learn more about microcontrollers passing to many mboards that can help the designer in advanced projects such as the development, learnind and assessment boards.
In the first part of this series we started with a brief look inside a microcontroller, analysing the main blocks. Now we proceeed with new blocks.
In the past the electronic assemblies which could be used in all applications, including mechatronics, were based on individual (discrete) components and eventually on several integrated circuits performing separate functions.
However, electronics has evolved and with the arrival of the microprocessor and microcontroller we have moved on to a new phase of assembly technology which simplifies designs and assemblies and makes them much more powerful and compact.
Application Report SLAA222A, which can be accessed from the company website, describes the rotation detection with the MSP430 scanning interface. In this application an LC sensor is used for the Scanning Interface of the devices of the MSP430FW42x family. The download address for the document is www.ti.com/lit/zip/slaa222. In this article we summarize what is in this application thus giving an idea for the reader of what is possible to implement with this technology.
Do you believe that a razor can be used as an electronic component to detect radio waves? If this is not a sensational idea for a project of a radio (that works!) capable of receiving stations of medium waves through a razor. The project is ideal as a technological curiosity, and can be implemented in basic and secondary level courses.
Readers working with data-processing devices may have heard of RISC and CISC. If you still do not know what is its importance in the choosing, this article is old but still valid and can teach you a lot.
