I am a post graduate student, who is doing quite some "theoretic" work at the moment. So in some way I also wanna collect some practical experience for the embedded system domain. I have done some programming with pic and nec microprocessors and I wanna get more experience in this field. So I was thinking of AVR or ARM processors to program. Are there any "simulation" tools out there that I could use for learning purposes? And anyone an idea whats the best way to get an deeper insight in this topic for example what kind of projects I could do that have a good learning effect?
Many thanks, Peter
