The Advantages of Microcontroller Compiler-Independent Coding
Embedded designers face shorter design cycles, feature creep and an increasing work load. One of the most overlooked ways to reduce design risk and save time and effort in embedded design is compiler independence. Developing code that is compiler independent for microcontrollers adds a great degree of flexibility to any project. Compiler independence gives designers the ability to choose compilers based on the needs of their project. Comparing different compilers can clearly show the performance of various tool chains operating under the same conditions.
