Understanding the Differences Between UART and I2C

Communication protocols are some of the essential building blocks of an embedded system. They are what governs how data is sent over the bus, including whether data is sent serially, parallelly, asynchronously, or through a master/slave paradigm.

There are multiple forms of communication that can be used in an embedde...

What are the Differences Between an Integrated Circuit and a Microprocessor

The introduction of integrated circuits (ICs) has revolutionized the way embedded systems operate today. By integrating transistor circuits onto a single chip, electronics developers could create advanced computing devices like laptop computers and mobile phones. When discussing how embedded systems operate, we often he...
