A microcontroller is an IC chip that is primarily used to execute programs that control other devices or machines. This is a tiny chip used to control other equipment machines, hence the name "Microcontroller Development". In this article, Inrien introduces 5 types of common microcontrollers on the market.
Common types of microcontrollers on the market
1. PIC microcontroller
PIC stands for Peripheral Interface Controller, which means Peripheral Interface Controller, which is a microcontroller component that is widely used in the development of electronic products, computer robotics, and similar devices. Although the PIC is produced by Microchip technology and is based on a hardware computing architecture, the code and data here are placed in separate registers to increase input and output. PIC microcontrollers have built-in data memory, a data bus, and a dedicated microprocessor, providing I/O usage and processing methods.
2. ARM microcontroller
ARM stands for Advanced RISC Machine. It is the most popular microcontroller programming in the world of digital embedded systems, and most industries only prefer ARM microcontrollers because of the important features that enable great looking products. It is a cost-sensitive high-performance device that has been widely used in industrial instrument control systems, wireless networks and sensors, and body systems.

3. 8051 MCU
Intel created the 8051 microcontroller in 1981. It is an 8-bit microcontroller. It consists of a 40-pin DIP (dual in-line package), 4kb of ROM storage space, 128 bytes of RAM storage space, and 2 16-bit timers. It consists of four parallel 8-bit ports that can be programmed and addressed according to the specification.
4. AVR microcontroller
AVR refers to Alf and Vegard's RISC processors. AVR microcontroller is a modified Harvard architecture machine where program and data are stored in separate physical storage systems that appear in different address spaces but have the ability to browse information from a specific direction of program memory victim. AVR is not synonymous with associate degree, nor is it a special symbol.
5. MSP microcontroller
MSP stands for Mixed Signal Processor and is family of Texas Instruments (TI). The MSP is built around a 16-bit CPU and is designed for low-cost and low-power embedded statements, respectively. The appearance of the controller is directly related to the 16-bit data bus, 7 addressing modes, and a reduced instruction set, enabling the use of shorter, denser programming codes for fast performance.
