The MCU has replaced the hammer!
. . . "To a man with a HAMMER|(big jar of blue and black pill MCUs),
everything looks like a NAIL|(job for an MCU)"
I thought it was well-known that nothing can be designed without at
least one microcontroller.
The other day I saw a product with a flashing LED, the flash rate was
set with a knob. Yes, a microcontroller with a pot connected to an
analogue input and LED hung off an output port. This is the sort of
thing I'd do with a couple of transistors or an NE555 depending on
which turned up in the junk box first.
$deity I hate modern electronics.
