Keywords:MCU software  software development  MCU design needs 

As the world continues to go digital, microcontrollers (MCUs) are being introduced to more applications than ever. New TVs use MCUs to increase the contrast ratio with LEDs.

Lawnmowers can be automated with the help of MCUs, and use electric motors instead of gasoline engines to improve efficiency and reduce pollution. Coffee makers are made smarter with the addition of an MCU to make the perfect cup right when you wake up.

With the growth of MCUs comes a wave of developers with a variety of different backgrounds. This forces us to take another look at MCU software development. To maximise the usability of the processor, MCU software must appeal to the wide audience of users and place a larger emphasis on system applications.
