Leveraging Advantages of the Mobile Market for Embedded Designs

Posted 08/29/2017 by Tom Watzka

Not so very long ago, when embedded designers wanted to reduce costs, they would turn to high-volume PC architectures to drive down development costs. Where else could they find inexpensive components proven reliable in millions of consumer applications, and backed by an ecosystem of easy-to-use design tools and open source operating systems? Today’s embedded designers in industrial, automotive, medical and other fields are now finding that the smartphone market plays a similar role. Want...
