7 A GENDA  Challenges for Graduating Students  What are the embedded systems?  What are wireless technologies?  Embedded System Development Specifics  What is Software Engineering?  Embedded System Training Center (ESTC) curriculum

8 C HALLENGES FOR G RADUATING S TUDENTS Graduating students have the good knowledge in computer science  Mathematics  Programming languages  Basics computing techniques etc. But! They don’t have sufficient skills and experience in  Specific software development domains  Software development process

9 S OLUTION FOR S TUDENTS Embedded System Training Center  Specific software development domain  Embedded software  Wireless technologies  Specific software development process  Software engineering in Japan and USA

10 W HAT ARE THE EMBEDDED SYSTEMS ? Embedded systems:  Computer system designed to do one or a few dedicated and/or specific functions often with real-time constraints.  Embedded as part of a complete device often including hardware and mechanical parts Embedded software:  Software for embedded systems  Equipment (hardware) and software part of the product shall be considered together with equipment

11 APPLICATION OF EMBEDDED SYSTEM DEVICES There are some embedded systems in every electric and mechanical systems. Automobiles, Train(Shinkansen), Aircraft, Digital Camera, Digital TV, Air-conditioner, Robot, Mobile phone, etc.

12 12 C ASE E XAMPLE : E MBEDDED SYSTEM USED IN CAR High-end car: More than 100 ECUs embedded in a network About 7,000,000 lines of source code

14 B LUETOOTH P ROTOCOL Bluetooth protocol  Characteristics  Range up 100 m, Piconet up to 8 devices  Data Rate up to 24 mbit/sb (BT 4.0)  Multi-tier, 28 profiles  Applications  Mobile phones (headset, dial-up, transfer of contact details, calendar appointments, etc.)  Wireless devices like the mouse, keyboard, printer, camera  Multimedia devices  Serial port-like communication with bar code scanners, and traffic control devices.

15 Z IG B EE P ROTOCOL  Characteristics:  Low-cost, Low-power  Range up 200 m  Multi-tier, 5 profiles  Applications:  Home Entertainment and Control  Wireless Sensor Networks  Industrial control  Medical data collection  …

16 E MBEDDED S OFTWARE D EVELOPMENT S PECIFICS Resource constraints  Cost limitations especially for the mass products  Low RAM, CPU usage  Time constrains (real time response).  Low power consumption, operating environment (e.g. temperature), weight → Real Time OS are used Quality and Reliability  Malfunction of the equipment directly related to system malfunction  Higher cost of recovery system  Customer expectations for equipment reliability

17 F UN OF E MBEDDED SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT  Purely algorithmic programming  Direct work with hardware and OS entities, allows to understand deeply how your device works – phone, gadget, computer  Our target is not tiny assembler written code, it can be even RDBMS for small devices  Kind of hacking and sometimes  Allows to work on variety of platforms (hardware, OS)

18 W HAT IS S OFTWARE E NGINEERING ?  Legitimate engineering discipline The application of a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the development, operation, and maintenance of software; that is, the application of engineering to software (IEEE definition)  Recognized profession  Applies Computer Science theory and practical result  The aim is: solving of the customer’s problems with computing means  Quality is the crucial point

19 W HAT IS S OFTWARE E NGINEERING ? System approach  Analysis  Identify activities and objects  Define the system boundary  Consider nested systems, systems interrelationship  Synthesis of solution  Creation of solution for system from subcomponents solutions
