Firmware Day

Posted by

This is in continuation of last article Embedded C with STM32

What is the difference between Embedded C and Desktop C ?
There is not much difference in terms of syntax but the major difference is mindset.
When we start learning desktop c, we don’t bother much about memory management.

The first program in Desktop C starts with printf(“Hello World”) but it is not that simple in Embedded C.

First program in Embedded C start with LED blinking.

If you ask some C programming person to define any variable for counting from 0 to 199 , s/he may immediately respond with int count; or short count ;

In Embedded C , we have to think like businessmen from day one for spending memory or I/O . We will try to manage with unsigned char AKA uint8_t . This is the simplest example I shared.

Is it tough to learn Embedded C ?

Not at all. I had similar feeling for learning PCB design because of my CSE background. Later I not only enjoyed but also enabled someone to start it as a passive income source.

We have created one day webinar to cover key points in Embedded. Following is the agenda but we can add some interesting topic in Embedded career slot.

Why I should learn Firmware ?

Firmware development job is in high demand post Covid19 . Good embedded software developers are getting better salary than IT service based jobs.
