9b. Embedded programming (CLS Adults)¶
This week, our group assignment is to compare the performance and development workflows for other architectures. We decided to compare the SAMD11C to the Atmel Mega 328. The datasheet for the SAMD11C microcontroller was 980+ pages long, and the datasheet for the Atmel Mega328 microcontroller was 290+ pages long. We decided to focus on a few of the featers of both for comparison.
