Re: [N8VEM-S100:6076] Micro controllers

If your not a C or C++ person, look look at these Basic interpreters version..
I use a PIC32 with Basic in my starting Robotics class...

You may want to look at this...

You know, you can't beat the PIC24/dsPIC33 (16bit) or the PIC32 for price and performance...

I've used both for many project and have now standardizer on the PIC32..., no need to use a limiteted processor to do small project...

The development tools are free and solid, lots of demo code available...

a PIC32MX270F256B is in a dip package, USB serial, SPI, I2C I/O ATD ect... 64KB ram, 256K flash  all for $4!!!
(there even a version of BASIC that run on the chip)
you can use a Microstick II from Microchip for $35 to program them or PicKIT3 for $45 ( on sale from time to time) (donot get a PICKIT2)
( if you have a .edu email address you can get at 25% discount)

their just no need to use a limited Arduino today!

There is a ton of stuff out there. Looking for recommendations of which micro controllers
are easy to use and program, don't require a ton of $$$ for the dev tools, etc.

Looks like the Microchip PIC is a contender.
STM8S003F3P6 ST Microelectronics - 8 bit MCU 8K flash 16mhz CPU, EEPROM, UART  Chip is less than $1 !

Thank you
