Things Enginneers Need to Know About Embedded Development

Recommended Posts

The July 2012 issue of Design News had a good article about software projects. Although it is directed towards commercial development, the concepts are useful for the hobbyist that is tackling a custom microcontroller design that does more than blink an LED. Most of the information is not new, but it is useful to be reminded that software design is a slippery beast.


One sobering point is mentioned in section #4 (page 41): ... never add a feature simply because it's possible to do so, ...

That's a hard one to prevent since after all, it's only code. :)

I agree with that last point 100%, my pet hate is simple things made complicated or unreliable just because unwanted features have been added!
