hey guys...i'm looking for a micro-controller to toy around with. I'm a newbie so bare with me with a couple newbie questions... Is their a micro that can run straight c code or do I have to do it in assembly? I need it to be able to store a little bit of data much like a variable stores data...only a few kilobytes worth. I also need to to be able to do simple computing on the data much like a basic C program could do with logic operators and basic I/O with other parts. Does this make sense or am I a little lost? I've found many micro controllers but I don't understand their spec sheets and I can't find their assembly data sheet that shows me how to code them :( I bought and complete a micro-controller education kit that showed me how to code a basic stamp...so i'm kind using that as my basis for micro-controller knowledge. With a stamp I can move a servo, light up LED's change how fast they blink etc.
