Selecting a Microcontroller: Part 2 – Cost

Dennis Cecic, P. Eng. (d.cecic@ieee.org)Senior Member, IEEE Toronto Section In this article, we will uncover cost considerations in selecting a microcontroller. Bill-of-materials (BOM) cost is usually the most important constraint in a design effort, and as an engineer, you should always strive for the lowest BOM cost in your designs. “An Engineer is someone who… Read more

Selecting a Microcontroller: Part 1 – Introduction

Dennis Cecic, P. Eng. (d.cecic@ieee.org)Senior Member, IEEE Toronto Section You’ve completed a project scope assessment and developed a basic product architecture, identifying some key constraints for your next design (cost, power, throughout, memory, size/weight, end-user experience etc). Now you can begin your search for a microcontroller. This can be a daunting task! In this series,… Read more
