Hi,

Does anyone here use Ada for development of their embedded systems? 
Pros? Cons?

I came across these articles, and thought I'd ask the question:

http://electronicdesign.com/dev-tools/learn-ada-on...

Is this just trade magazine hype, or is there something to it?

Chuss,

Julian

ADA is probably only used in some legacy defense/aerospace applications 
nowadays. There is an ADA compiler for AVR, but there is not a lot of 
development going on, and I doubt it is used in any serious 
applications.

So no, there is probably nothing to it.
