Embedded Systems Training Programs
Embedded systems are a cornerstone of the electronics industry today.
An embedded system is designed for a specific purpose. The system gains its name from the fact that the software is embedded into it for a particular application — an electronic system that has a computer software that is embedded in a computer hardware. A hardware platform is generally a micro controller or processor in which the program is dumped. The hardware has its own software. They are either Machine code (hex code) or Programming code ( C, C++ code).
There is a tendency for people to confuse embedded systems with general purpose systems. A general purpose system does multiple tasks. A laptop computer, for example, can do multiple things at a time. This is in stark contrast to an embedded system which focuses on a specific single task. Pace makers, washing machines, microwave ovens, printers, alarm systems and digital cameras are all examples of devices that function via an embedded system.
The advantages of embedded systems over general purpose systems are considerable, including:
- Faster to load and smaller size
- Easy to manage
- Low cost
- Require fewer resources
- These operating systems are dedicated to one device so performance is good and use less resources like memory and micro-processors
Just about every household and business sector now relies on embedded systems. For example, embedded PC Solutions can be leveraged in many Transportation applications. Owing to their ruggedness and flexible I/O, what is deployed in one environment is often easily adaptable to another.
Transportation applications can range from solar powered ticket and information kiosks to tracking and remote power train control in all manners of transportation environments from automotive and avionic to passenger and freight railway.
For traffic management, interlinked infrastructure is a common goal in urban environments, yet every implementation is as unique as the city in which it is installed, thereby putting the emphasis on rugged SBCs with flexible I/O again.
New airplanes contain advanced avionics such as inertial guidance systems and GPS receivers that also have considerable safety requirements. Various electric motors — brushless DC motors, induction motors and DC motors — use electric/electronic motor controllers.
Automobiles, electric vehicles, and hybrid vehicles increasingly use embedded systems to maximize efficiency and reduce pollution. Other automotive safety systems include anti-lock braking system (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC/ESP), traction control (TCS) and automatic four-wheel drive.
Many feel that embedded systems are the future of our technology world.
At the core of every current or soon to be significant technological advancement lie elements of embedded systems. Much of this has been brought on by the expected mass connectivity of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. This is because embedded systems are systems working within other systems to make them more efficient and effective.
It is a challenging yet exciting time to be an embedded systems engineer. But, like most professions in technology, continual cutting edge training is mandatory to keep up with latest trends and changes as technological discoveries expand our lives.
Embedded Systems Training Courses by Tonex
Tonex offers two important courses in embedded systems training:
Embedded Systems Engineering Certificate — This 4-day course covers all aspects of developing reliable real-time embedded systems including hardware and software. Participants learn about embedded systems engineering and development from microprocessor-based control systems, to system-on-chip (SoC) design, and device software development.
This certificate program also looks at embedded systems engineering as a synergistic function between hardware and software device design and development. Participants learn the essential concepts of embedded systems development through a practical, hands-on approach utilizing industry design automation (EDA) tools and design kits.
This is an excellent course intended for designers, programmers, testers, and other engineers who are interested in learning the fundamentals of embedded system engineering.
Embedded Linux System Overview — This 2-day course gives attendees a solid understanding of Linux kernel and libraries and utilities for embedded applications. Participants learn about tools and techniques to develop an embedded Linux device.
The use of Linux in embedded products has increased in recent years, with Linux now being used in many consumer electronic devices, medical devices, wearable gadgets and military applications.
