About Me

A veteran of embedded microprocessors, I was waiting around for 4 years for microprocessors to be invented!

I did my first major microprocessor-based system in the early 70's. It involved a lot of math so I wound up writing my own floating point package for the PACE microprocessor. I was working in Perth, Western Australia, the most remote capital city in the world, so it was pretty much a matter of working it all out for yourself.

Fast forward ... I half-own a small company, SPLat Controls, making embedded electronic controls for OEMs. My forte is real-time embedded controls and, importantly, communicating with customers who have trouble defining and describing what they need.

I am responsible for the programming tools for SPLat controllers. Other take care, these days, of the internal firmware. SPLat has its own language, designed by me and optimised for the domain. It includes intrinsic cooperative multitasking and totally static resource allocation, so it is very "safe". Our primary aim is 24/7/365 reliability. This is a very different world to data base programming for an insurance company or even such embedded products as smartphones.

My current (Late 2012) project is writing a new IDE to support our emerging 32-bit controllers. I am learning .NET for the first time. I joined this forum to get some help with particularly thorny problems.
