Chips Provide All-in-One Stepper-Motor Control
Filed by Jon Titus on 12/06/2012
Under Electronics Jon Titus
 Quite some time ago I got interested in stepper motors and used a basic stepper to advance punched cards through a crude reader mechanism with electrical contacts that completed a circuit when a hole passed by. Since then I have thought about stepper motors often as ways to solve tricky motion-control problems. Since I started to dabble with steppers, companies have introduced discrete controller chips as well as stepper-motor control software for microcontrollers. Creating designs with stepper motors gets easier and easier. See More ...

XMOS Software Simplifies Multicore MCU System Design
Filed by Jon Titus on 11/07/2012
Under Electronics Eval Kits Jon Titus
Engineers can face quite a challenge when they undertake a design project that will involve multicore microcontrollers (MCUs). Software can quickly become complicated as programmers exchange data and control among the processor cores. XMOS, a company based in the UK, has produced multicore MCUs for several years, but with a different architecture that helps engineers and programmers simplify complex programming tasks. See More ...

Free C++ Compiler for Microchip MCUs
Filed by Jon Titus on 11/02/2012
Under Electronics Eval Kits Jon Titus
Design engineers and programmers can take advantage of the C++ language in projects that use a 32-bit Microchip microcontroller (MCU). The free MPLAB XC32++ compiler simplifies the re-use of code and it provides compliance with the C++ standard, which makes it attractive for use in commercial products. Better still, unlike "introductory" programming tool suites, the full C++ compiler from Microchip has no time limit for users and no limit to the amount of code people can compile. See More ...
