There is one thing which bugs me for year, more than anything else.
When I purchase something I want to know what I get and what it cost.
Unfortunately with microcontrollers I get the run-around. I have to spend the better part of the day to find out
or just purchase the development system just to find out that:
The C-Compiler is just an "evaluation" version and I have to spend a few thousand later to get the real thing.
I want to know this up front.
IN FACT THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT INFO OF THE WHOLE THING.
Does the development system come with a full C-Compiler or NOT and when not, how much does it cost.
At that point I may chose to move on and go somewhere else.
I do not mind to pay for something, but every time when I find out afterwards that I have to pay again, I feel suckered.
So, does anybody know?... before I have to use an 8051 with a conventional 24b ADC
And Analog Devices, PLEASE make it clear from the start.
