Editing and updating the page about microcontrollers[change source]

We are planning to add a diagram of an alternative picture of a microcontroller for reference. We will also compare and contrast between microntrollers and microprosseors. Another heading that will be added is the extension of uses for microcontrollers, and examples of how they are used. A history section, how they work, and the design of microcontrollers will also be added. We will then check and add sources to make sure information is credible and reliable. 5df4smscb19 (talk) 16:12, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

I would like to add more sources to make sure that the info on Microcontrollers is credible[change source]

I am planning to add one or two sources for each paragraph, which give reliability to each piece of information.

Paragraph 1: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/microcontroller1.htm

Paragraph 2: http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/M/microcontroller.html

Paragraph 3: http://www.mikroe.com/chapters/view/64/chapter-1-introduction-to-microcontrollers/

Paragraph 4: http://www.engineersgarage.com/tutorials/difference-between-microprocessor-and-microcontroller#

Paragraph 5: http://www.ti.com/lsds/ti/microcontrollers_16-bit_32-bit/applications.page

Changing paragraph 2[change source]

The information in paragraph 2 isn't exactly correct and I am re-working it to be more accurate. 5df4smscb5 (talk) 16:21, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

I am going to add more information on paragraph 5, about the uses of Microcontrollers.[change source]

Microcontrollers have many more uses than the ones listed and I think it is a good idea to add some more. I am getting my information from this link: http://www.ti.com/lsds/ti/microcontrollers_16-bit_32-bit/applications.page , and will add any uses that are not already listed. Thanks!

Adding Images of Microcontrollers to help explain information[change source]

I am going to add a couple of images of other micro controllers to the page to make information easier to understand and/or add reference.

Adding a paragraph/section about the history of Microcontrollers[change source]

I will be adding section, (using simple english,) about the history and creation of the microcontoller. This will help people to understand how they became what they are today and what they are in general.

Adding related pages/see also to help explain info[change source]

I will add multiple other link at the bottom of this article that lead to websites that explain more about microcontrollers, in case someone reading this article would like more information. 5df4smscb19 (talk) 16:17, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Adding "Related" pages and renaming it to "See also"[change source]

Adding a link to the microprocessor page and renaming the section to "See also" 5df4smscb5 (talk) 16:15, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Far too complex[change source]

The language is far too complex for this wiki. Macdonald-ross (talk) 16:39, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Changing overall language in the first couple paragraphs to make it simpler and easier to understand.[change source]

Some of the language in this article that has been there for a long time is too complicated and I will be changing it to be simpler and easier to understand. 5df4smscb19 (talk) 15:56, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

Reformatting Sources[change source]

I will be reformatting our sources to make them into the proper wikipedia format for citing sources. 5df4smscb19 (talk) 16:15, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
