What is a Microcontroller ?

A microcontroller is an integrated circuit (IC) which is small, low cost and self contained computer designed to handle a specific task in embedded systems. In simple words, a microcontroller (MCU or Microcontroller Unit) is a small computer integrated in to a single chip. We can also explain it as programmable silicon chip which is clock driven, register based, accepts input and provides output after processing it as per the instructions stored in the memory. A computer is a...

Blinking LED using LPC2148 – ARM Microcontroller Tutorial – Part 3

Hello World In this tutorial we will learn how to start programming an ARM microcontroller. This is a hello world project (blinking an LED) intended for beginners to ARM microcontroller programming. Here we are using LPC2148 ARM microcontroller and Keil IDE for programming. Components Required LPC2148 Development BoardLED220R Resistor Registers In this section we will learn about different registers used for configuring or controlling a pin of an ARM microcontroller. In microcontrollers, pins are divided in to different PORTS. Usually a 32-bit microcontroller will...

ARM’s First 64-bit Processors

ARM will introduce its First 64-bit processors later in this year targeting on servers and high-end smart phones. They are also started to taking steps to build up software support for the s64-bit processor designs. Most of the smart phones and tablets that we use today use ARM processors. Now the company is trying to dominate its market as Intel dominate in server market. New ARM processors will be licensed to device makers and  based on the ARMv8 architecture. These will be in market by 2014, after it will...
