Starting Your Project

  • Gene Sally


Embedded projects start with selecting hardware. Based on the requirements of the project, such as cost, battery life, communications, and user interface, a few processors and technologies become obvious choices. For example, low-power consumer devices frequently use ARM processors, and industrial control applications frequently use Intel x86 parts. The hardware selection doesn’t occur in isolation; the team selecting the hardware must at the same time consider the peripheral devices and driver availability. Chapter 17 goes into detail regarding the development process unique to embedded projects.
