In this session we explore the process of optimizing control functions, small adjustments in microcontroller firmware can produce significant improvements in embedded system performance. Coming up with the right values for gains, offsets, delays, hysteresis values and PWM parameters can be time consuming, but using the right tools can speed the process. With a mixed signal oscilloscope, especially one with deep memory, you efficiently gain access to insights of your process including sensor signals, feedback signals and firmware timing.
