Introduction

Today, the majority of automatic electronic controls for home appliance and industrial products use single-chip microcontroller units (MCUs). Manufacturers develop realtime embedded firmware that executes in the MCU and provides the hidden intelligence to control home appliances and industrial machines. MCU damage due to overheating, static discharge, overvoltage, or other factors can cause the end product to enter an unknown or unsafe state.
