It's been a while...

...since my last post. And NO I'm not dead!

And there are not really any big news, except that I started to play wit the STM32 ARM Cortex controllers from ST. And yes they are definitely different to 8bit AVR controllers.

Spidermans uncle once said: "With great power comes great responsibility", and that's almost true with these (for me) new controllers. You have to take much more care for the configuration of the I/O, the clocks and the Interrupts.

So my next posts will take a closer look about how to setup the Eclipse IDE under Linux for the ARMs and take a look on the programming of these powerful controllers.

The upcoming posts will be more or less a notebook for me to get these things organized and documented.
