Research and Markets: 2009 Embedded Hardware/Software Design Preferences: Design Starts, Completions, Cancellations, Processor/Software Utilization

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/b43832/2009_embedded_hard) has announced the addition of the "2009 Embedded Hardware/Software Design Preferences: Design Starts, Completions, Cancellations, Processor/Software Utilization" report to their offering.

Profound economic conditions spawn profound opportunities and challenges. As in any economic contest there will be winners, losers and those that cant tell the difference. Market uncertainties challenge vendors and OEMs alike to find new niches, competitive advantages and markets that will remain stable while enjoying growth potential.

History has shown that radical upheavals cast aside the status quo and clears the way for new ventures to succeed. This has ben historically followed by sustained periods of growth that exceeded the size and scope of the previous incarnation. The trick, of course, has been to discover the new growth markets and to grab a secure foothold. This is where market intelligence provides value.

The embedded marketplace for developers has undertaken a radical upheaval, driven by economic and technical forces that are unyielding and destined to change the embedded landscape. In this report, EMF documents its findings of developer preferences based upon the responses of more than four hundred eighty embedded developers to the detailed 2009 EMF survey.

One should expect continued changes in COTS availability, new bus architectures, high speed interconnects and design complexities. EMFs year-over-year data continues to show that in-house developments for Linux and communication middleware fail to produce the same outcomes as respective commercial offerings. In time Darwinian market processes will push these in-house efforts and those that espouse them to the side of the road for emerging growth markets.

These in return will cause a ripple-down effect on software design complexities and create a requirement for new and better tool sets to accommodate multicore and multithreaded technologies. Looking ahead we expect that the embedded industry will experience a series of hardware and architectural changes necessitating a redeployment of developed software to new hardware interfaces. This will be of particular concern to military and avionics programs that are measured in decades, not in years.

Although these changes are initially manifesting in hardware - boards, busses and chips software developers will also feel the impact as multicore processors and systems-within-systems opportunities create new demands on their abilities.

We are at a unique time in the history of development, application and utilization of technology.

Imagine the challenges:

  • Developers are faced with increased design complexities, diminishing time-to-market requirements, familiar components being brought to end-of-life, and changing development processes and tool availability.
  • COTS users (e.g., military, avionics, telecom, etc.) are learning that COTS availability is driven by a diminishing number of embedded vertical markets that continue to supply high performance components and boards as well as interconnect technologies. Chip and board manufacturers are moving to the high volume and lower quality processors used in consumer electronic devices that have very short life spans as compared to the long term needs of major systems deployment.
  • The largest segments of the embedded/enterprise marketplace are recognizing the importance of systems development and the required complexities of systems-within-systems that go far beyond design and development processes.
  • OEMs and systems integrators are insisting on a demonstartabe enhanced ROI as a prerequisite to investing in newer tools

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
SYS-CON Events announced today that IoT Global Network has been named “Media Sponsor” of SYS-CON's @ThingsExpo, which will take place on June 6–8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
