Embedded Systems

Software development conceptEmbedded systems are always unique and customized for the functions and services they perform. When designing and programming software for embedded systems, development teams must carefully consider all options to ensure the product meets exacting specifications. They need to comprehensively review development options and determine how best to optimize their embedded systems to meet functionality objectives. Let’s outline five software development considerations for embedded systems.

Power Consumption

Embedded systems software developers must often create effective solutions to processing challenges while dealing with system size, weight and power constraints. It can be a challenge to reduce power consumption when system resources are limited and Read the full article →

embedded system
In a recent blog, we posed the question “What is the real difference between an embedded system and a regular consumer system?”. The most important difference that was highlighted in that blog was that embedded systems have long lifecycles ranging from 3-7 years. Explaining why that was necessary for many embedded applications. This isn’t the only difference between “embedded” and “consumer” but this was the focus because it is such a broad and important difference that applies in practically every situation, and is a very sought after quality when choosing between embedded and consumer systems.

embedded system-consumer systIf you’ve worked in the industrial computing industry for any length of time, there is one question that is bound to have come up at one point. “What is an embedded system?” And more importantly, “what is the difference between an embedded system and an ordinary consumer system?”

It’s likely that you’ve even been in a situation where you have had the option to go with a consumer system and an embedded system, both of which had the same I/O, and were left scratching your head as to why the embedded system had the larger price tag. Despite the similarities, there are a few big differences beneath the appearances. And depending on your needs, you may or may not require an embedded system. Read the full article →
