Abstract


  • The development of embedded systems on Macintosh has been constrained by a lack of software tools. In this paper, we look at a number of tools for developing embedded software on a Macintosh host. Also, we examine the advantage of writing embedded applications in high-level, type-safe languages. In this context, we discuss programming PIC micro-controllers in C, Basic Stamps in PBasic and TINI micro-controller in Java.
