No doubt today I have to make a post, unfortunately because Dennis Ritchie, a person based on the gestation and development of the Unix operating system and the C programming language, has died at 70. Anyway, thank you very much Dennis for your contribution to the history of mankind, I have not used any other language like C in such a passionate and fervent way. Well lately I have to say that Microsoft's uncles have done a masterful job with C#.
Obviously the heart of the system is the MCU/CPU. My approach was to find out a balance between the cheapest, most powerful, and higher trend MCU in the market. Without any doubt the winner is the AMR, many manufacturers have adopted these cores: TI, Samsung, nVidia, Intel, Atmel, NXP, Freescale, a never ending list. For a system designer like Cisium this provides a big advantage, this allows to switch between manufacturers with similar cores with a great reutilization of the knowhow.
