Paper deals with didactic tools for education of embedded systems on the base of microcontroller family Basic Atom. Microcontrollers are included into products with the aim to improve product properties and with aim to add new functions to product. Several modules have been developed as didactic tools for students training with microcontroller applications. Some educational models with microcontroller also have been developed by students.
