Abstract

Software development has grown over the years from simple BASIC programs written on small hobby computers to large software systems that control factories. Many applications that at one time used dedicated hardware are now implemented using software and programmable hardware. This shift in emphasis has meant that, as a percentage, an increasing amount of time is spent on software and less on hardware development.
