So i've always been very interested in Electronics, but eventually ended up pursuing a career in Computer Science. Anyways I have the programming portion down pretty well.....but my problem is , is that I want to get into the hardware of microcontrollers.
I've done some research on some kits and such, but.....how would I go about "building my own".
Like not purchasing a pre-built board kit, but actually getting the microcontroller.....soddering it in...and it's components or is that probably not a smart thing to do?
BTW any suggestions as a good MC to start out with? I've heard alot about the TI ARM processors among various others but I don't know whats good. I would preferably like to start with one that uses straight Assembly, I can deal with a C compiled one....but i'd rather not lol
