In spite of their relative high price, we always bought boards from Arduino, not because we fear the ‘hall of shame’, but because we understand that that buying these boards contributes to the business model of the Arduino team and […]

News from the Plain DSP planet

You may like read this interesting paper dedicated to the use of the different types of memory available from an Arduino Board . Next is a picture from a cousin microcontroller of the ATMEGA328, which illustrates the various areas dedicated to each main function of the microcontroller such as the memories.
