The case for de-integrating embedded Flash

When Flash is external to the SoC, memory is no longer a limiting factor. Developers can select a best-in-class SoC based on its performance and scale Flash density independently. Being able to right-size Flash memory also reduces system cost and footprint.

To comment or not to comment code?

Traditional software wisdom tells developers to comment their code, but modern development movements like Clean Code suggest that if you need comments, your code is…
