Struggle continues to plug embedded programming gap: via @ee_times

Struggle continues to plug embedded programming gap: via @ee_times

I would say the problem goes even deeper, to the machine/assembly language level. To do effective embedded programming, you have to be able to think at the machine level. C is a very effective way to write embedded programs, but IMO it's best to think of C as a portable assembly language with high-level notations. Many embedded system problems can only be understood at the machine language level, and when computer scientists stop mastering assembly language and rely on high-level language alone they will have serious problems finding such low-level bugs. For example, in an embedded systems there may be no memory protection and code with a bad pointer may stomp on anything, including instructions. As I understand it, Java protects you from doing this so if you only learn Java you'll never learn that such a misbehavior is even possible and won't know what to do if it happens...
