Embedded Systems

Advanced embedded systems perform an increasing amount of vital functions in areas like transport, communication or health care. Embedded computer systems are integrated into a physical or electrical environment and react continuously with this environment and have to satisfy different requirements, such as real-time, power, size or costs.

The design process is inherently complex, because these systems consist not only of analog and digital hardware, but also of an increasing amount of software controlling the functionality of the system.
