  4. 4. How to Get the Most Out Of Your Embedded Hardware While Keeping Development Time to a Minimum : A Comparison of Two architectures and Two IDEs for Atmel AVR 8-bit Microcontrollers

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för informations- och kommunikationsteknik (ICT)

    Author : Niclas Arndt; [2014]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to answer a number of basic questions about microcontroller development: • What’s the potential for writing more efficient program code and is it worth the effort? How could it be done? Could the presumed trade-off between code space and development time be overcome? • Which microcontroller hardware architecture should you choose? • Which IDE (development ecosystem) should you choose? This is an investigation of the above, using separate sets of incremental code changes (improvements) to a simple serial port communication test program. Two generations of Atmel 8-bit AVR microcontrollers (ATmega and ATxmega) and two conceptually different IDEs (BASCOM-AVR and Atmel Studio 6. READ MORE
