does anyone use this micro-controller?
« on: May 28, 2009, 04:14:02 PM »
 Just wondering, but does anyone use the bx-24 or any other basicx micro controller? Just because i got some questions on communication with a pc using a serial wire and com1.
Need help with an algorithm or a maths related problem? Ill be glad to help :)

Well not many on this forum, I would assume, use that controller, but I'm sure some have. You'll find that almost %75 of users on this forum will tend towards AVR's due to the fact that there is a major support for them on this forum and the C compilers people like are FREE!

Yea, it is, and it's nice to have a chip that is easily coded in BASIC, but I'd recommend trying AVR's or PIC's (I personally am a PIC user).

Dang straight, I am going to give a go on AVR's myself just because there is all of this support here.  :D

I may stick with PIC's for awhile more though... just because I got the CCS C PCWH compiler as a gift. So, pretty much if I get an AVR programmer and find a C compiler I like, then maybe I'll be one of those types who use both. :)

It's definately about preference, but it is nice to have something to fall back onto, whatever the reason.
