A microcontroller is a self-contained system with peripherals, memory and a processor that can be used as an embedded system. Most programmable microcontrollers that are used today are embedded in other consumer products or machinery including phones, peripherals, automobiles and household appliances for computer systems. Microcontrollers are so powerful components that they let you write programs to control your electronics.
There are lots of choices when you want to choose a best microcontroller. If you want something simple, probably an 8-bit microcontroller is a good choice. EPCB lists 5 easy tips for you to select your microcontroller. They are simple architecture and easy to learn, currently being used in modern designs, the availability of an evaluation module or an applications board, something individual hobbyists and experimenters can buy, and free or cheap software. If your microcontroller meets all the criteria, then you may find your best microcontroller.
