DOT NET on a Chip
Microcontroller programming using C# and Microsoft Visual Studio
The .NET (“dot-net”) Framework is a powerful tool for programming PCs as it relieves the developer of much time-consuming work. The framework is now also available, in a slimmed-down form, for 32-bit microcontrollers. It allows easy programming of I2C, SPI, Ethernet and many other functions without the need to get to grips with the details of the hardware. What’s more, a development environment is available for free!
