I wonder which microcontroller I should choose for small hobby projects and self-eduaction.
I've had a basic course in microcontrollers where I was trained in the use of the MC68HC11 MCU. I want too continue using Motorola, but I want to use a newer chip with better capabilities, i.e. FLASH.
I also need some sort of education board where the MCU can be removed so I can use it as a programmer too. In my studies I've worked with the EVBplus2 board and I like the design and features of this board.
I was also hoping to get this at a cost that will suit my poor student economy.
Yours sincerely
