Science and technology is making rapid growth in their applications. A micro controller is a self-contained system with peripherals, memory and a processor that can be used as an embedded system. Micro controller are IC-chips that are embedded in product , machinery, household appliances. That is why micro controller has another name as ‘Embedded Controller’. Due to it can be embed with any technology it has several applications which opens many doors of opportunities.
Why Micro controller-
When it comes to micro controllers are considered to be heart of these systems. Micro controller 8051 includes easy set of instructions which are available widely. Some the advantages are listed below :
1. As it is programmable in nature, it is flexible.
2. Programming of Micro controllers is simple to learn. Its not much complicated.
3.Cheaper in manufacturing as it is integrated in a chip.
4. Human efforts are reduced as comes in practical use and task can be completed fast and quickly. mainly reduces human efforts and time.
Application of Micro controllers varies as per field
Micro controller has become an important part of different field. It is used in robotics, electronics, spave,mopbile communications almost in all fields. It is used for developing and controlling the activities of numerous applications that are used on a daily basis. Some of the applications of micro controllers have been discussed below:
In medical application micro controller are used in monitoring devices, fitness meter,glucose meter and detection system. It’s purpose is to help the customers to achieve innovative possibilities. The MSP430 MCU is ideal in complementing the trend of connectivity for personal and portable devices such as glucose meters and blood pressure monitors that run on coin-cell batteries. There are several many applications which are regularly used and has too much scope.
New technology provide advanced reliability and safe automobiles. Technology embedded with micro controller in automobile is aimed to give secure, comfortable and reliable user experience while driving. Micro controllers are controlling a car’s engine. Which gives better user experience. Companies like google and apple are often trying to hi-tech driverlerss cars. This is very big step and challenging task to micro controller programmer. These robotic application guvesd chance to many controller specialized people.
Coming to the electronic appliances and gadgets. micro controller has various applications. Micro controllers are used in Various types of mobile phones, security alarms,traffic signals, cameras, measuring instruments and many more. Electronic voting machine is also a great practical example of microelectronic application. In these electronic applications the main circuit, mechanism is controlled by micro controller.
