Prototype to production: Arduino for the professional

Despite its popularity among hobbyists and electronics enthusiasts, the Arduino has become infamous among professional embedded systems developers. I must admit that for the longest time I also viewed the Arduino as so simple it was nearly useless for professional developers. But I have changed my mind. I’ve found that on a number of occasions over the last few years, rapid prototyping using Arduinos and Ar ...
