Getting started in the world of embedded programming

So, you want to try yourself out in the world of embedded programming, but you're not sure how to start or what you might need. Fear not, as this article will explain what you might need and where you can get it.

Now,there are a couple of things you would need for a project.

First of all, you would need hardware, something you can work with.

We have a lot of boards for different architectures. Go HERE and select your desired architecture.
However,if you want to save some money, then you can always start with the less expensive, compact ones. To see what we have in our offer, click HERE

Then you would, of course, need a compiler, something where you write your code and program your board with.

Have a look at our products and choose your desired language and architecture by clicking HERE.
Of course, you don't have to buy our compiler. You can use other compilers. All compilers generate the same hex file which is used to program the MCU(microcontroller). Bear in mind that you would still need a programmer to load that hex file to your MCU.

Now,if you decide to go with some of our compact boards, I would recommend picking up one of our PROGRAMMERS.
It's easy to use, and you can also debug with it.
If you decide to go with the one of the full development boards, then you won't really need the programmer. Those boards have a built in programmer/debugger. It's really up to you and your needs.

You could always go with our KITS, which have everything you might need for a good start in the world of embedded programming:

And last but not least, I would recommend checking out our LIBSTOCK page for examples for your brand new hardware.

I hope this helps anyone who's looking to make an entrance in the embedded world.

    Hi :

              That meant, I have to pay for the software , the compiler and the programmer?

    That will be a lot of money !
