  5. 5. What is Embedded System?
  6. 6. Let us ponder… • What do you understand as Embedded System? • Name few examples of Embedded System from our daily usage • How different they are from a general purpose system (GPS)? • What difference can be there between multiple Embedded Systems? “Any Hardware System which is intended to do a specific task can be called as an Embedded System”
  7. 7. ES - Examples Examples – Automotive, Satellite communication, Consumer electronics, Medical, Imaging, Robotics etc..
  8. 8. ES - Classifications  Embedded systems can be classified into four different categories: • Stand alone Embedded System – Performs a single and specific functionality • Real time Embedded System – Provides real time guarantee in terms of response • Network appliances – High focus on packet processing • Mobile devices – Hand held devices  Embedded systems – “Choice-points” • Embedded Systems type and expectations drastically vary • In order to meet customer needs specific “Choice-points” to be decided • These are popularly known as “Design parameters”
  9. 9. ES – Choice points  Let us take an example of Mobile Vs. Automotive Embedded device  Try to compare various choice points  For each choice made corresponding compromise factor to be considered  Optimizing every other parameter is not a possible option
  10. 10. ES – Design metrics  Time to Prototype  Power  Performance & Correctness  Size  NRE  Maintainability & Flexibility  Safety  Unit Cost  Time to Market
  11. 11. ES - Challenges  Efficient Inputs/Outputs  Embedding an OS  Code optimization  Testing and debugging
  12. 12. Three stories
  13. 13. ES - Components
  14. 14. Embedded Industry in India
  15. 15. Embedded industry in India Phase- I • Outsourced product development from India • Purely cost advantage • Project or contract based work execution Phase - II • Offshore development centers of major MNCs (ex: Intel, TI, HP etc…) • Task level ownership • Augmenting teams in the head-quarters Phase – III • Complete product development from India • Domestic market needs • Higher value added activities – product ownership, product launch, innovation, IP creation
  16. 16. Why Embedded?  Indian Tech industry’s paradigm shift  Embedded Systems is heart of product development  Rewarding career experience : Embedding Intelligence Inside a Box’  Skill shortage in India and the need for ‘Quality’ engineers  One among the top paid jobs in the industry today
  17. 17. Market size  About 6,80,000 embedded professionals requirement*  Mainly for embedded software (firmware)  Global R & D opportunity is $89 billion*  India can contribute $15 billion in terms of R & D*  Apart from R & D, opportunity exists in manufacturing, local market consumption and India specific solutions  Myth of “only for ECE / EEE people”  Both local & global opportunities * Reference from NASSCOM report, quoted in popular articles & websites. Projection provided till the year 2015.

  24. 24. Demo: Internet-of-Things (IOT)
  25. 25. Internet of Things Any TIME, Any THING, Any PLACE connection
  26. 26. Emx–PIC platform  Microchip PIC micro- controller  Multiple peripheral support  Explore all possible I/O ports  Beginner’s view for Embedded  Students, Enthusiasts and Entrepreneurs  Project ecosystem
  27. 27. Use case - Industry  This application to demonstrate automating industrial workflows in the area of machine management especially in growing demography like India.  The application is interfaced with a stepper motor and IR sensor. It show how a stepper motor can be driven and control conveyor system, which is a typical use in beverage industry.  The user can count the objects moving on the conveyor belt using the IR sensor and keep track of total production, thereby automating industry workflows
  28. 28. Use case - Home  In our daily life we do certain regular thing like switching on the water heater early morning to take a bath or say switching on the gate lights every day at dusk and switch off at dawn.  Our application will a simple demo on how we can achieve this with Emx PIC platform by interfacing with a lamp and PC fan.  This will demonstrate simple and effective home automation.
