At one time, the various computers in an office were all operated individually.
History[ edit ] The first microprocessor was the 4-bit Intel released inwith the Intel and other more capable microprocessors becoming available over the next several years.
However, both processors required external chips to implement a working system, raising total system cost, and making it impossible to economically computerize appliances.
One book credits TI engineers Gary Boone and Michael Cochran with the successful creation of the first microcontroller in The result of their work was the TMSwhich became commercially available in This chip would find its way into over one billion PC keyboards, and other numerous applications. At that time Intel's President, Luke J.
Most microcontrollers at this time had concurrent variants.
One had EPROM program memory, with a transparent quartz window in the lid of the package to allow it to be erased by exposure to ultraviolet light, often used for prototyping.
The other was either a mask programmed ROM from the manufacturer for large series, or a PROM variant which was only programmable once; sometimes this was signified with the designation OTP, standing for "one-time programmable".
The erasable versions required ceramic packages with quartz windows, making them significantly more expensive than the OTP versions, which could be made in lower-cost opaque plastic packages.
For the erasable variants, quartz was required, instead of less expensive glass, for its transparency to ultraviolet—glass is largely opaque to UV—but the main cost differentiator was the ceramic package itself.
Nowadays microcontrollers are cheap and readily available for hobbyists, with large online communities around certain processors. World's smallest computer[ edit ] On 21 Junethe "world's smallest computer" was announced by the University of Michigan.
The device is a "0. Because they are too small to have conventional radio antennae, they receive and transmit data with visible light. A base station provides light for power and programming, and it receives the data.
A typical mid-range automobile has about 30 microcontrollers. They can also be found in many electrical devices such as washing machines, microwave ovens, and telephones.
Historically, the 8-bit segment has dominated the MCU market [. The bit MCU market is expected to grow rapidly due to increasing demand for higher levels of precision in embedded-processing systems and the growth in connectivity using the Internet.
Cost has plummeted over time, with the cheapest 8-bit microcontrollers being available for under 0. While some embedded systems are very sophisticated, many have minimal requirements for memory and program length, with no operating system, and low software complexity.
Typical input and output devices include switches, relayssolenoidsLED 's, small or custom liquid-crystal displaysradio frequency devices, and sensors for data such as temperature, humidity, light level etc.
Interrupts[ edit ] Microcontrollers must provide real-time predictable, though not necessarily fast response to events in the embedded system they are controlling.
When certain events occur, an interrupt system can signal the processor to suspend processing the current instruction sequence and to begin an interrupt service routine ISR, or "interrupt handler" which will perform any processing required based on the source of the interrupt, before returning to the original instruction sequence.
Possible interrupt sources are device dependent, and often include events such as an internal timer overflow, completing an analog to digital conversion, a logic level change on an input such as from a button being pressed, and data received on a communication link. Where power consumption is important as in battery devices, interrupts may also wake a microcontroller from a low-power sleep state where the processor is halted until required to do something by a peripheral event.Arduino project ppt.
Interactive is a concept that pertains to the innovational enhancement of a communication environment where in more than a party is equipped and is able to participate in a particular given activity. Summer Training Report Submitted to the B.H.U.

– 4th) Roll No. In a recent post we looked at ways to build interactive elearning even if using PowerPoint to build the courses. One of the demos I shared prompted lots of questions. So in today’s post I’ll show you how I created the PowerPoint interaction.
This lets us look at some essential production tips when using PowerPoint to build interactive elearning. Hi people, this is a short video on how to sell online or start online ecommerce business with minimum budget.
