Abstract

Digital information technology has revolutionized the world during the last few decades. Today about 98% of programmable digital devices are actually embedded [132]. These embedded systems have become the main application area of information technology hardware and are the basis to deliver the sophisticated functionality of today’s technical devices. As shown in Fig. 1.1(a), current forecasts predict a worldwide embedded system market of $88 billion in 2009.
