Overview Continuous Integration (CI) and Automated Testing are key components to a successful agile software process. Over the last 19 years, SDS has built a significant number of automated test systems for our customers, and we have assisted customers in creating and...
At SDS, we specialize in development and consulting for embedded systems and the Internet of Things (IoT) systems. We have worked with many clients on a wide range of projects over the years. We would like to share some of the most common questions (and their answers), so you can benefit from this knowledge as you consider projects revolving around IoT and embedded systems design and development.
In our continued effort to share best practices around embedded systems (where digital intelligence is embedded in non-digital devices or materials), we want to point our readers to recent guidelines issued by the Trusted Computing Group (TCG). The guidelines focus on software and firmware updates for embedded systems, which have become increasingly important as the number of cyber attacks continue to rise.
The embedded systems market is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of more than 4 percent between 2017 and 2023. Some of the main drivers of market growth include the growing demand for wearables; the increased usage of embedded sensors in implanted,...
The embedded software market was estimated at $11 billion in 2017, and is forecasted to have a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 7 percent between 2018 and 2024. But new challenges are constantly emerging as more devices become connected through the Internet of Things (IoT).
I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend the 2018 Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) in Boston on April 18th and 19th. As an engineer at Software Design Solutions (SDS), I attended as many class sessions as possible, aiming to learn about new technologies and design approaches—lessons that I can take back and apply to projects for current and future clients.
Embedded systems engineers design, develop, and maintain the hardware and software that runs on embedded systems. As advances and investments in smart technology continue to grow, so does the demand for embedded systems engineers. In 2017, the role of embedded systems engineer was listed as one of the five best engineering jobs.
