I work for a small company that manufactures instrumentation. I've worked
there since 1983. Most of the projects are smaller (<1K ram, <32K rom) than
the stuff you do though we have a couple of things that are medium sized
(128K ram, 128K rom). It remains fulfilling for me because there are more
new projects every year than one might expect and it seems there is always
some new and challenging problem to solve. You haven't lived until you've
had to write your own CORDIC routines :-) Also, since I also design the
electronics I get to solve the puzzles on multiple fronts.
Glad to hear that you are working on projects you enjoy.
