Abstract

Several microprocessor families, which are suited for embedded instrumentation applications are investigated. In addition, different communication protocols for embedded systems are discussed, since communicating with a host and other systems is essential for this kind of application. Usually dedicated communications chips are used as modems. As an alternative approach, a software implementation of an FSK protocol was investigated in terms of feasibility. This method potentially makes it possible to decrease overall system cost and physical size.
