Re: Which One is the Most Reliable Microcontroller?

Firstly great question and secondly some really great replies....

I would say that having purchased the best quality you can find, putting in also good quality components, programming and design, you then need to build, each totally separate, at least 3 of them and give them "voting" rights against each other, so that if one has a problem, the other two then switch it off and give a warning that this has been done.

I believe that early aircraft blind landing and takeoff systems did this say 40 odd years ago, but how its handled today I have no idea......Maybe someone else with more knowledge could comment.......
