Thriving on the technological advancements, Embedded Systems are finding new traction in smart manufacturing in a wide range of sectors. An embedded system is based on microcontrollers, the center hardware for any such systems. These microcontrollers are evolving constantly enabling enhanced monitoring and machine control.
FREMONT, CA: A recent swirl of events is creating an impact on the embedded systems market. Most of these trends revolve around the characteristics, including power, size, security, and speed, which are the critical characteristics of embedded systems. The industrial arena for embedded systems is undergoing several alterations, which will empower developers to manufacture systems that are high-performing, safe, and secure. For 2019, the embedded systems market is witnessing revolutionary trends across cloud connectivity, enhanced security tools, instantaneous visualizations, etc., to name a few.
Here is a look at some of these trends:
Cloud connectivity tools are being given more importance in the embedded security arena. Connecting industrial embedded systems to cloud and the internet has been a time-consuming task as far as conventional development cycles are concerned. The tools for enabling faster and smooth connectivity between embedded systems come with an exclusive design to simplify the connecting procedure through the reduction of underlying hardware complexities.
Real-Time Data Visualization Tools
At present, there is a significant lack of tools for visualizing and monitoring industrial embedded systems for developers in real-time. The industry is showing an increased affinity towards real-time visualization tools which would extend the ability for software engineers to analyze the execution of embedded software. These tools would empower developers to continue to keep a check on vital aspects, including unprocessed sensor data and context switches that are event-based to track the performance of the embedded systems.
Enhanced Security for Embedded Devices
The rise of IoT has made security a primary concern for manufacturers and developers. Advanced technologies with an affinity for embedded security would emerge as prime generators to identify devices as part of IoT networks, and also as microcontroller safety solutions, which separate normal operations from security operations.
