Basics Of Microcontroller

Research two microcontrollers and provide information about them from their datasheets. There are several microcontroller manufacturers

which you can investigate including Atmel, Microchip, Freescale, TI, etc. For each microcontroller, report the following information. (Be sure to

include a link to an online reference where you found this information.)

Manufacturer: Silicon Labs

2. Research the Arduino and Raspberry Pi platforms to determine if there are operating systems which can be used on each platform. If there

are, list those operating systems and state whether they are open source or not.
