Microcontrollers are complete computer systems-on-a-chip which are used to control electronic devices.A typical microcontroller will contain all the memory and interfaces needed to run a simple application. RAM size, ROM size, and ROM type are all key characteristics of a microcontroller. Examples of such types of ROM include Flash, EEPROM, and OTP ROM.
Microcontrollers usually contain a wide variety of peripherals such as Digital I/O's, Analog to Digital Converters, Digital to Analog Converters, timers, counters, PWM's and specialized communication interfaces including I²C, UART, CAN, LIN, SPI, USB, and Ethernet.
Featured Article: Brushless DC (BLDC) motors are now replacing traditional brushed DC motors due to higher reliability, efficiency, and lower noise. These are popular in almost every field such as consumer electronics, home appliances, and industrial controls. Development of high performance BLDC control systems requires higher accuracy. More...
