The Future of IoT (Internet of Things)

We live in a period of intense and concentrated technological change, to the extent that we sometimes lose perspective on just how quickly things around us are transforming for the future. If we think about the life-changing technologies that we interact with on a daily basis, many of them were likely not present in the marketplace as r...

An Introduction to Real-Time Embedded Systems

One of the earliest decision points in embedded systems design is whether the system will require real-time computing capabilities. Real-time computing describes the ability to react to inputs and deliver the prescribed output within a constrained time frame. Devices that use real-time computing are deployed in applications where t...

Basics of Embedded C Programming: Introduction, Structure, Examples

C is a general-purpose programming language with a range of desirable features and rich applications in computing. With its origins in the assembly language, the C language includes constructs that can be efficiently mapped on to typical machine instructions, making the language useful for coding operating systems and many types o...

Microcontroller vs Microprocessor - What are the Differences?

Seasoned embedded systems engineers and product developers in the electronics industry should be familiar with the functional differences between a microcontroller and a microprocessor. Both types of components are essential for designing and building various types of electronic devices, yet it can be difficult to distinguish between ...

What is the Importance of Embedded Networking

Embedded systems are small computers that are implemented as part of a larger system or product and designed to execute a specific function or application. They include a processing unit, usually a general-purpose microcontroller, along with on-board peripheral components such as I/O ports, memory (program memory, RAM and EEPROM), A...

What is a System on Chip (SoC)?- A Basic Definition

The System on a Chip market is projected to grow to over $207 billion by 2023 according to a report released earlier this year. System on a Chip technology is found across all industries and is used in embedded systems as well as general purpose computing devices. However, despite its popularity, there is still ambiguity and confusion...
