# Intro

Inspired a bit my the 'Embed with Elliot' article Going 'Round with Circular Buffers, I decided to make a contribution.  Read the article …

# Intro

I believe that I should start out saying that I like both the MSP430 AND the PIC24 series.  I was doing some assembly coding on the MSP430 close to the time that I was doing some assembly work on the PIC24 and I noticed that things were taking significantly …

# Intro

All of the guys who are software gurus do some sort of unit testing... and you should too. There are lots of tools out there, from the very slimmest to some very expensive packages. I'm going to show you the quick and dirty method that will cover 80% of …

# Intro

There are some really great chips out there, many with almost unbelievable numbers of interrupt vectors.  Unfortunately, it always seems to come up that you have a single interrupt vector that has to be split between two or more different events.

So you have been an embedded engineering for …

# Intro

This tutorial is geared towards those who want to write hand-optimized assembly code for the MSP430, but don't quite know how to get started.  If you are interested in writing assembly on the PIC24 or dsPIC33 series, see our other tutorial on writing assembly for use in C using …

# What is Fixed-Point Math?

Fixed-point math is math in which the decimal doesn’t move relative to the digits composing the number. Some call this ‘integer math’, which is a reference to the integer form that numbers normally take on the processor in fixed-point notations. Others call this ‘q math …

# Intro

So I have been playing with writing assembly again within the context of C and I have run into the usual issues.  I have decided to create a quick little 'getting started' tutorial.

If you are interested in the same type of writeup regarding TI's MSP430 series, head over …

So I have been doing some reading and looking around recently regarding Q1.15 math and embedded C and I am surprised at the lack of libraries out there.  I remember implementing some fixed-point math in my motor control days, but I would have thought that there would be an …

Greetings!

After a number of years of working in the embedded world, I realized that I really enjoy sharing cool things with cool people.  This is my attempt to further that goal!
