I could present a short talk about my final year project in 1995 - we
built a "security system" based on Dallas Touch Memory buttons, using
8051 microcontrollers talking over an RS-422 bus. Unfortunately I don't
have any hardware to show you (that's all still at Uni of Canberra),
but I can give you some pointers about the compromises that we made in
both hardware and software.
We used Hi-Tech C for that project - AFAIK it was ANSI C compliant for
the functions it supported, but it didn't support much.

Though I expect modern embedded systems will be a little more complex
than the 8051, and most of my development work was done with the aid of
an in-circuit emulator. Note that the 8051
