Embedded Systems Architecture Training

An embedded system is an applied computer system, as distinguished from other types of computer systems such as personal computers (PCs) or supercomputers.

An embedded system is designed to perform a dedicated function. Most embedded devices are primarily designed for one specific function. However, we now see devices such as personal data assistant (PDA)/cellphone hybrids, which are embedded systems designed to be able to do a variety of primary functions.

At the architectural level, the hardware and software components in an embedded system are instead represented as some composition of interacting elements. Elements are representations of hardware and/or software whose implementation details have been abstracted out, leaving only behavioral and inter-relationship information.

Architectural elements can be internally integrated within the embedded device, or exist externally to the embedded system and interact with internal elements. In short, an embedded architecture includes elements of the embedded system, elements interacting with an embedded system, the properties of each of the individual elements, and the interactive relationships between the elements.

Some of the most important components within an embedded system are derived from specific methodologies, commonly referred to as standards. Standards dictate how these components should be designed, and what additional components are required in the system to allow for their successful integration and function.

Experts in this field report that the decreasing cost of processing power, combined with the decreasing cost of memory and the ability to design low-cost systems on chip, has led to the development and deployment of embedded computing systems in a wide range of application environments.

Embedded system applications range from digital watches and microwaves to hybrid vehicles and avionics. As much as 98% of all microprocessors now manufactured are used in embedded systems.

Consequently, embedded systems are present everywhere although invisible to the user. Here are some of the applications of the embedded system which use a powerful operating system (OS) like Embedded Linux, Android, and Windows CE:

  • Smart homes
  • Offices
  • Transportation
  • Healthcare
  • Aerospace and defense

Embedded Systems Architecture Training Course by Tonex

Embedded Systems Architecture Training is a 2-day practical training course focusing on embedded system’s architecture,  models, specification, high level design, system partitioning, , building blocks and components, quality, security, safety, reliability. Participants will learn about the architecture of embedded systems, embedded software, firmware and hardware, RTOS and real-time programming, portability, low power, and more.

Embedded Systems Architecture Training Course is designed for technical professionals, analysts, managers, software and systems engineers, programmers, hardware engineers and designers who are interested in embedded systems.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for engineers, programmers, and designers of embedded systems; software and hardware engineers; IT architects; systems designers; new product developers. Students in the areas of computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, bioengineering, and mechanical engineering, managers, and employees with little or no embedded system architecture experience. The course is also useful for those who have experience with embedded systems but have never had any formal training on embedded system architecture and design.
