As part of a universiy project i am desiging a primitive engine managment system. I am currently using a 16 bit demo board, DEMO9S12XDT512. Although it is very much possible to use this i am finding that i am spending a lot of time dealing with 16 bit limit, and the extra code uses more processing time.
I do not have a lot of experience with microcontrollers and am writing in C with CW.
Is there a 32 bit microcontroller that I could use with limited funds? Or a demo board?
