Ready, Set, Embed!

by Amelia Dalton

This week's Fish Fry is all about embedded design - from microcontrollers to tools.  We examine why the death of 8-bit MCUs might not be so close at hand and what the new l-Jet in-circuit debugging probe is all about. Then, it's off to some truly strange "News You May Have Missed" where we see how Nintendo is teaming up with Toyota to make driving more like a video game.

Also this week, I have a brand new nerdy giveaway (a TI MSP-EXP430FR5739 Experimenter Board) courtesy of Mouser to throw your way, but you'll have to tune in to find out how to win.

Embedded design is the theme of this week's Fish Fry. What do you think about this collaboration between Toyota and Nintendo? A good idea or a really bad one?

At work our conference rooms range from freezing to hot and humid while facilities doesn't seem to thing there is a problem. This looks like the perfect board to hook up to a battery and log the temperature over a couple days and provide data showing how bad it really is.

Dear Amelia

Yep, and there's no sign of those pesky 8-bitters fading away anytime soon...

Yes, I'd like to try one of these TI MSP-EXP430FR5739 Experimenter Boards as part of an embedded autonomous navigation system.

Here's hoping!

Cheers & Regards,

Roger de Q.
