  • I don’t totally understand this part:
    In the old days, microcontrollers were OTP or one-time-programmable meaning you could only program the micro once, test the code, and if your code didn’t work, you threw it out and tried again. Now micros are ‘flash’ based meaning they have flash memory built inside that allows their code to be written and rewritten thousands of times. I’ve been programming micros for years and always burn out the microcontroller far before I hit the limit of flash programming cycles.
    I get that it means you can program them more than once now, but I am unsure as to what is meant by programming

No public wish lists :(
