I never tried my hand on embedded systems, until I finished my one year coursework.
Generally, in India, you have to do a one year coursework followed by a one year development work to get your Masters degree.
So one day, probably early June, I was called upon by my guide.
I was told that if I was interested, he would like to assign me with the development work of a novel type of router. WOW!!! That is fun, I thought.
It turned out that its more than that. I was told that I was in a one member team. The work was new, no reference is available, and though I am entitled to help, I have to learn up mostly by myself and also teach my guide.
Now, this IS fun.
So time to download datasheet, blowing up a few PIC16F877, heating up your iron and making a JDM programmer, learn up embedded C programming and sdcc.
In the subsequent blogs, I shall write whatever I could learn and am learning in the process, not only to share but also with an ulterior motivation of keeping a draft documentation. 🙂
