Brace Yourselves, Processor Independence Is Coming! #PopularTweet
As the old adage goes, every Electronic Engineer is a maker, but not all makers are Electronic Engineers. Because of this fact, many Makers tend to adopt a single development board and tool chain as it is just too expensive to be able to afford a completely different setup for each and every processor one might want to develop with. Sure I may have in excess of 150 different development boards and the accessories to go with them, but that is only because manufacturers send them to me for review. I have so many development boards now that I have officially ran out of room on my workbench as well as in a filing cabinet drawer where I keep many of the older boards.
