9. Embedded programming
- Compare the performance and development workflows for different microcontroller families
There are many microcontroller families such as LOGIC, Megaprocessor, 8051, PIC, MSP, AVR, ARM, Xtensa, RISC-V, PSoC, xCORE, Propeller, Lattice, NVIDIA and so on.
The Performance and Development Workflows for different microcontroller families
In our school, we should let our junior students to build up the basic knowledge on logic training for junior secondary students before learning different programming languages in senior secondary levels.
Therefore, we would use School-based Computer Curriculum for micro.bit as above photos to attempt the obvious outcomes of programming easily for all beginners. Why should the students to learn micro.bit???
Only 5 Simple Steps can be followed to show the outcomes by using the website resources for makecode.
Go to the Website for makecode.microbit and Create a New File
Select "On Start" or "Forever" (Red) and Show the Outcomes immediately (Blue)
Just Click the boxes which you choose to Design your own Figure
Step 3 Download the File from the Website
Step 4 Connect the micro.bit with the computer as Plugin a USB
Step 5 Copy the download micro.bit file into MICROBIT drive
Outcomes "A Figure for Heart" shown on micro.bit

- Arduino IDE
First, going to download Arduino IDE.
For the begining to use Arduino, it don't install any ATtiny chips. Therefore, it need to download from unofficial list of 3rd party board --> search ATtiny and copy the link into the Additional Boards Manager URLs.
Here is the step.
After that, going to Tool --> Board:"Arduino Uno" --> Boards Manager --> search ATtiny --> click install.
After the installation, select the correct Board, Processor, Clock and Programmer that you use. For me, I select:
Clock: Internal 16MHz
