  • The Top 10 Microcontrollers For PCB Design

    August 4, 2016 The SnapEDA Team

    Microcontrollers (MCUs) have come a long way since the pioneering 4-bit Intel 4004 hit the market back in the 1970s. Today, they’re the heart of most embedded systems, from automotive engine control systems, medical devices, toys, and more, serving as low-cost, compact, single chip computers. The beauty of MCUs is that they reduce the size and cost of the alternative:…
