@rhusain0: Max I am fpga design engineer so had little work with arduino. Then I went to help my sons project and we ordered an arduino and h bridge. In 3 days we had the motor dancing. All thanx to arduino environment.
Thanks for sharing -- I hope you and your sons are having as much fun as am I. Did you see my other Arduino-related blogs:
Max I am fpga design engineer so had little work with arduino. Then I went to help my sons project and we ordered an arduino and h bridge. In 3 days we had the motor dancing. All thanx to arduino environment. That is why intel n co are all over the arduino environment. Its like the coming of the ibm pc over again. Or the smart phone..
Alex, the statistic isn't exactly clear on that point, but I'd say with near certainty it's used mainly for prototyping. The actual data point from the element14 survey said:
"More than half (56%) of professional engineers are more likely to use open source hardware such as Arduino and BeagleBone in 2013. Among hobbyists, that figure jumps to 82%."
The high numbers seem to stem from the fact that engineers like to have access to as many resources as possible, and the open source community provides that. Strong user communities help with ease of access and use.
