    Welcome to PF.

    Most Microcontroller (uP) development platforms use C (an artificial assembler).
    Or can be programed in their native assembler.
    Some uPs support Basic.

    I don't know of any that support Fortran, unless you want to call Windows/Mac platform machines Microcontrollers.

    Here's more info about Fortran. It was actually the first language I learned, back about a billion years ago. C is a much better language for uC programming, IMO.

    What are the FORTRAN APPLICATIONS briefly in electrical, computer and aerospace engineering ?

    All fortran can do, I may do it with FORCE 2.0(http://force.lepsch.com/index.html) ?
