You’ve heard the phrase “when there’s a will there’s a way”
Consider VND the company with a will.
We can create anything from touch screen environments to controlling a coffee pot with a cell phone. When it comes to mobile devices such as smartphones and I-pads, embedded programming works with an intricate assortment of embedded devices in order to run all their specific functions. Embedded programming can allow the user to create apps, turn their phone into a remote, create touchscreens, or even control another embedded device.
We’re dedicated to providing an innovative embedded device programming solution for you no matter what. Our experienced team of enterprise-level developers works to make your ideas happen.
What is embedded device programming?
Well, first you need to know what an embedded system is. An embedded system is a combination of hardware and software used for a specific function. Most technology we have operates on this system: cell phones, cars, appliances, airplanes. However, it takes more than one embedded device to run these complex machines.
What is an embedded device?
An embedded device is what the system runs on in order to carry out specific tasks. The embedded device is a small part of a much larger system. Many embedded devices with a few specific tasks are organized and embedded into the computer of these machines to allow them to run. These devices are then programmed with embedded device programming. So basically, embedded device programming is programming a tiny computer within a machine to do specific things. However, unlike regular operating systems such as those on laptops, embedded programming has to work within certain limitations. This is because many devices have unique specifications when it comes to their circuitry and microprocessors.
What are the benefits of embedded programming?
Low power consumption. Because an embedded system is used for a specified task, the power it needs can be engineered to be much less than that of a full size computer.
Small size. Generally, embedded devices do not need a large amount of hardware because they are
only designed for a few specific tasks
Rugged operating ranges. Because of an embedded system’s purpose of performing a minimal number of tasks
the operating system it needs doesn’t have to be as sophisticated or updated in order to
Low per-unit cost. The lack of large hardware and the newest operating systems allow the embedded
device to be very inexpensive, especially when mass-produced.
High reliability. Because of the simplicity of an embedded device, its only goal is to perform it’s specific task.
