Embedded Platforms

Vineet, It just makes sense that embedded platforms would play a role in Next-Gen Designs. With chip-level integration and system-on-a-chip continuing to evolve, there is just a great opportunity to develop intelligent systems using these high performance building blocks and COTS solutions.  Thanks.

Hi Vineet--interesting article and good focus on how much modular capability exists for embedded functionality.  You didn't mention it so I thought I would add that the wireless M2M space is offering lots of embedded capability, including modules with wireless chipsets, and ARM processor, and loads of I/O.  I touched on a few of these in a blog on a sister community to DesignNews called TheConnectingEdge.com:

Not every device needs a complete computer system, and it is always easier to implement function in software over complex hardware design. Embedded systems are here to stay. In fact, I just built a few products centered around microcontrollers. Although I could have done the same thing with a PC, having a standalone device offloads the work. I know a few engineers in the making, they say they have hardly faced embedded design in the college course path. It is a sad day.. This is why jobs are shipped out of the USA (and other places). C

Cabe, that's mind-boggling: that engineering students aren't doing embedded design. Do you mean as projects, or not even exposed to the entire topic?
