    Embedded system design is a multilevel engineering exercise. It requires synergy between software, electrical and mechanical engineers with the goal to create a system that meets customer requirements while remaining within budget and on time.

    The propagation of embedded systems has been extremely successful. Many appliances today contain embedded systems. As an example, many fuel pumps contain single board computers whose sole purpose is credit transactions. Some companies doing positive train control (PTC) use ARM/RISC and ATOM based computer modules. And embedded systems are currently dominating the Internet of Things (IoT) space (ex. mobile gateways).

    However, all of this success can tend to mask the challenges of designing a successful embedded system. These challenges are expected to increase dramatically with the integration of embedded systems into IoT applications, where environments can be much more severe than standard home / office installations.

    This course presents the fundamentals of designing a reliable embedded device and the most common pitfalls encountered by the system designer.
