With our microcontroller, we were able to take measurements of different elements and perform complex tasks a simple circuit could not have done on its own.
This experiment has opened up different views of how to implement a circuit using microcontrollers.
The possibilities are endless, stressing the significance of microcontrollers in microelectronics is key in man's effort to advance
