  • Early embedded software was written in assembly language in order to accommodate the limited memory and CPU power available. At that time, compilers were quite inefficient and it took a while before high level languages became popular and then mainstream. Although a number of languages have been used over the years – and still are – C quickly became the most popular choice. Of late, its
