Learning how to work on embedded system design is not so complex if you know how to start, where to look for information on internet and what to do if you are stuck.
In 2017, I decided to start writing articles so that I can help engineers, hardware startups with the knowledge and experience I have gained in the last two decades. I will write on various topics which will be useful for beginners as well for an experienced engineers.
These articles are mainly for engineers who are just entering into the embedded system world and want to learn how to design embedded solutions. It is very important to learn the basics first, so that the foundation is strong. I have tried to write some articles which will help engineers learn the basic fundamental things.
