Is Ben over-engineering the Super Glue Gun?

Though all is not as straightforward as it seems! Ben discovers the intricacies of the processor from the hardware’s datasheets and ensures he’s setting the correct bits to get the timing just right. Of course, it helps to sanity check it with an oscilloscope! Would you design this any different? Let the team know on the element14 Community!
