Embedded programming is an essential part of how IoT devices work. You’ll probably need to learn C/C++ and get some hands-on electronics experience to master these crucial systems in production.

Embedded programming has a long history of making devices do what people need. However, it remains largely overshadowed by application programming. When application programmers were embracing relatively high-level object-oriented languages like C++ or Java, or graphical application development environments like MATLAB, embedded programmers were only moving from into C.  They were always outnumbered by app programmers. Today, even hobbyists can develop an app using an easy language and share it with the world, while embedded programmers need to have deep knowledge of hardware and firmware, and how to write programs that can execute in often highly resource-constrained environments.

With the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), the balance can finally shift. Now that many new thermostats, toasters, watches and light bulbs are equipped with processors and connectivity, the market needs more embedded programmers to program these devices and simpler tools to allow these programmers to write code without plunging into the low-level hardware.

What Is Embedded Programming?

Techopedia offers a definition of embedded programming is “a specific type of programming that supports the creation of consumer-facing or business facing devices that don’t operate on traditional operating systems the way that full-scale laptop computers and mobile devices do.” The idea of embedded programming is part of what drives the evolution of digital appliances and equipment in today’s IT markets.

In simpler words, embedded programming is designing and writing programs for small “computers” that are embedded within devices other than traditional PCs, laptops or smartphones. It’s that which enables microcontrollers to awaken previously “dumb” devices—e.g. thermostats, lighting systems, parking meters, etc.—and give them some ability to “reason” about their environment.

Embedded Programming and IoT

From an engineering perspective, the Internet of Things describes a network of embedded, microprocessor-controlled devices, where that network is connected directly or indirectly to the web. The three pillars of IoT are, therefore:

  1. Embedded programming
  2. Network technology
  3. Information technology

IoT is soon to be everywhere. Embedded devices are, therefore, soon to be ubiquitous as well.

Here is a brief glance at some of the ways in which IoT is changing industries:

  • Industry — Industrial machinery and control, temperature monitoring and cognitive anomaly detection.
  • Healthcare — Blood pressure monitors, heartbeat monitors, fitness trackers, embedded medication delivery.
  • Aerospace and Defense — Flight control systems, actuation, air and thermal management, engine power monitoring and control.
  • Smart Homes — Home security systems, digital cameras, televisions and kitchen appliances.

Diving Into Embedded Systems

Some say that every complex system in the world can be reduced to two conceptual spheres: software and hardware. An embedded system represents, more or less, the intersection of those spheres: hardware and software.

Exploring Embedded Hardware

A typical embedded development board is divided into five “modules”: the processor, memory, input devices, output devices and bus controllers.

embedded programming is essential to the way IoT devices work. For production, you’ll need C/C++ and some hands-on electronics experience.

Hardware Components of an Embedded System

Processor

Embedded processors can be broken down into two categories: ordinary microprocessors that use separate integrated circuits for memory and peripherals, and microcontrollers that have on-chip peripherals, reducing power consumption, size and cost.  Some examples of these include:

  • Microcontroller (CPU) — an intelligent device that computes the tasks assigned by the user and is used to build small applications with precise calculations.
  • System on Chip (SoC) — comprises a CPU, peripheral devices (timers, counters, etc), Communication interfaces (I²C, SPI, UART), and power management circuits on a single integrated circuit.
  • ASIC processor (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) — designed for a specific application by a company or manufacturer.
  • DSP processor — removes the noise and improves signal quality in audio and video applications.

Memory

Memory is used to store data that’s being used on the device. Some examples of the types of memory used in embedded systems include Non-Volatile RAM (Random Access Memory), Volatile RAM, DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory), etc.

Input Devices

Input devices, such as sensors, switches, photodiode, optocouplers, etc., capture data from the outside world to be processed or exported from the device.

Output Devices

Output devices, including LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) or LED (Light Emitting Diode) displays, seven segment displays, buzzers and relays, respond to input events from outside the microcontroller.

Bus Controllers

The bus controller is a communication device that transfers data between the components inside an embedded system. The most widely used bus controllers are serial buses (I2C, SPI, SMBus, etc.), RS232, RS485 and Universal Serial Bus (USB).

Exploring Embedded Software

Embedded software, sometimes called firmware, is written for the device drivers, operating system and applications, as well as for error handling and debugging.

Software Components of an Embedded System

Device Driver

A device driver is a piece of embedded code written for a specific piece of hardware.

Operating System (OS) or MicroOS

Embedded systems have a range of operating systems, including RTOS (Real-time Operating Systems), mobile embedded, stand-alone and network embedded systems.

Most of the embedded software is now written in two languages: C and C++. There isn’t much of a difference between C and C++ in terms of syntax. However, C++ has some additional features, like enhanced security and closeness to real-world applications, while C is considered more reliable and has better performance by directly interacting with the hardware.

Key Considerations When Creating an Embedded Product

The best way to start writing software that would directly affect physical objects is to explore embedded platforms like the ArduinoRaspberry Pi, or Particle.

To develop a viable product you should take the following steps:

Step 1. Learn C or C++

This is where many stop since these languages can be hard to learn. However, if you want to write embedded software, you have to learn C/C++ (and maybe eventually Rust).

Step 2. Learn Some Basic Electronics

At least to the extent that you understand what voltage, current, power, resistance and ohms law are.

Step 3. Get the Basic Equipment

Embedded programmers interact with the physical world, so things like a soldering iron, Digital Multi-Meter (DMM) and a hardware debugger/ JTAG adapter (such as an ST-Link, or OLMEX adapter) or a Logic Analyzer would help.

Step 4. Choose a Microcontroller and Toolchain

To make your program run, you’ll need a microcontroller to actually run it, a compiler that compiles the code for the microcontroller and other tools to load the program onto your hardware. An example of the combination of microcontrollers with a toolchain is the STM32 microcontrollers that are supported by the arm-gcc along with openOCDtoolchain.  

Step 5. Understand the Datasheets

Before actually sitting down to write the first line of your code, you need to understand the (end user) specifications.

Step 6: Examine the Components

Analyze and pick up the components (software and hardware) required to make the product.

Step 7: Design a Product

Designing is always the most critical phase of any development cycle. The peculiarity of embedded programming is that you have to develop the hardware and software parts individually and then integrate them.

Step 8: Develop a Prototype

A prototype is a sample version created to test the concept that’s developed according to the specifications using the selected hardware and software tool.

Step 9: Test the Application

Now that you have a prototype, it’s possible to run test cases to tease out the potential of the application.

Step 10: Deploy the Application

After testing the application, the result is checked in a real environment to realize the Proof Of Concept – a technique used to validate an idea.

Step 11: Support and Upgrade

If needed, you should be ready to provide support and upgrade the application with new features.

And now you’re ready to start changing the world!

  28. Heya i’m for the first time here. I found this board and I find It
    truly useful & it helped me out a lot. I hope to give something back and help others like you aided me.

  29. How to Use Google Chrome Like a Pro
    Are you still using Internet Explorer? Wow I sure hope not.
    But if you happen to be, devote some time right now to get more
    web browsing experience and skills by installing Google Chrome.
    Chrome is the fastest and greatest internet browser on the planet (within my humble opinion).

    There are just steps you can take with Chrome that you simply no longer can do with another browser.

    In this article I will concentrate on utilizing Google Chrome by leveraging Chrome shortcuts
    along with the Google Chrome Webstore.
    Leveraging keyboard shortcuts is among the most number 1 activity that
    you can do to save lots of time using the Internet.
    Most people rarely use Chrome shortcuts. Think about this, every time you take
    the mouse you lose a short time. Over time if you add those
    seconds up over a long period that turns out to be lots of time.
    I not acquiring in the fine information on specific shortcuts.
    Just Google “Chrome shortcuts” and learn them. Print from the Chrome shortcuts cheat sheet and it over
    your desk. Learn to love Google Chrome keyboard
    shortcuts and I promise you will boost your productivity.

    Have you been aware of the Google Chrome Webstore?
    The Chrome Webstore is simply an app store to your internet browser!

    What is awesome about Chrome is that you just can add apps into it to enhance and customize your web browser.
    Sometimes these Chrome apps can also be known as extensions.
    For example you can include basic apps like Facebook and YouTube when you open a brand new tab
    (using keyboard shortcuts needless to say) there exists a Windows-like web browsing interface.
    Think of them like huge bookmarks that you simply can access instantly each and every
    time you throw open a whole new tab.
    More advanced Google Chrome Webstore extensions can be hugely valuable also.
    I love SEO for Chrome by . This extension allows me to discover site traffic, amount of Facebook likes, and amount of links for
    ANY of my competitors or potential partners. Another great extension may be the
    Google Mail Checker. This extension allows me to incorporate a small icon to my browser that alerts me whenever I get an email.
    With one simple click I can immediately head to my Gmail.

    AddThis is a terrific marketing app around the Chrome Webstore.
    It permits you to share any link through literally any network instantly.
    You can change the extension to ensure with a single click you are able to share interesting sites or content.
    You can share links on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn for starters.

    The list of options and networks that AddThis supports is very large so check out and personalize it on your own.
    The variety of hours an average joe spends online is growing with an exponential rate.
    Everyone regardless of their profession needs to enhance their web browsing skills and knowledge.
    The great thing about shortcuts and also the webstore is the fact
    that everyone can immediately improve their skills and experience by learning them.
    I feel the best way to learn is by video and has a great course on Google Chrome it is possible to check out in the
    event you want step-by-step training and instruction. Take
    some time from the busy day and dedicate yourself to learning
    the shortcuts and leveraging the apps Google Chrome is offering.

  30. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article
    writer for your site. You have some really good posts and I believe I would be a good asset.
    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to
    write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to
    mine. Please blast me an email if interested. Thank you!

  31. Hi I am so excited I found your webpage, I really found you by
    mistake, while I was searching on Aol for something else, Anyways I am here now
    and would just like to say thanks a lot for a marvelous
    post and a all round entertaining blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to go through it all
    at the minute but I have saved it and also included your
    RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a lot
    more, Please do keep up the superb b.

  32. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout
    of your website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it
    much more pleasant for me to come here and visit
    more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
    Fantastic work!

  33. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your website.
    It appears like some of the written text in your posts are
    running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if
    this is happening to them too? This might be a issue
    with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Cheers

  34. Hi there everybody, here every one is sharing such
    experience, so it’s nice to read this web site, and
    I used to pay a visit this web site every day.

  35. I’m really loving the theme/design of your blog.
    Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility
    issues? A few of my blog visitors have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.

    Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

  36. Wonderful website you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the
    same topics talked about in this article? I’d really like to be a part of
    group where I can get advice from other experienced people that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Cheers!

  37. Nice blog here! Also your web site loads up fast!
    What host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host?
    I wish my site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

  38. Oh my goodness! Awesome article dude! Thank you, However I am going through
    problems with your RSS. I don’t know the reason why I cannot
    join it. Is there anybody else getting identical RSS issues?
    Anyone that knows the solution will you
    kindly respond? Thanx!!

  39. Appreciating the dedication you put into your blog and in depth information you present.
    It’s good to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t
    the same out of date rehashed information. Fantastic read!

    I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  40. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but
    I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style
    seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  41. Hello would you mind letting me know which web host you’re utilizing?

    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.

    Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a fair price?

  43. Hi! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or
    vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you might be interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!

  44. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be
    greatly appreciated. Many thanks

  45. Hi there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so
    I came to give it a look. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m

    The account helped me a appropriate deal. I have been tiny bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered shiny clear idea

  51. Good ? I should definitely pronounce, impressed with your site.
    I had no trouble navigating through all tabs and
    related info ended up being truly easy to do to access.
    I recently found what I hoped for before you know it
    at all. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it
    for those who add forums or anything, web site theme .
    a tones way for your customer to communicate. Nice task.

  52. I think that what you posted was actually very reasonable.
    However, what about this? what if you were to create a awesome title?
    I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid., but suppose you added something that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Embedded Programming for
    the Internet of Things – WEBSITE OF SCIENCE RESEARCH
    is kinda vanilla. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and
    watch how they create article titles to grab people interested.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to get people interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it
    might make your blog a little bit more interesting.

  53. Hi there, There’s no doubt that your website might be having
    internet browser compatibility problems. Whenever I look at your site in Safari,
    it looks fine however, if opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart from that,
    great website!

  54. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after reading through some of the
    post I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely
    glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!

  55. I blog often and I genuinely thank you for your content.
    This great article has really peaked my interest.
    I’m going to take a note of your website and keep checking for new details
    about once a week. I subscribed to your Feed too.

  56. Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding
    one? Thanks a lot!

  57. I absolutely love your site.. Great colors & theme.
    Did you develop this web site yourself? Please reply
    back as I’m trying to create my own blog and want to find out where you got this from or what the theme is called.
    Many thanks!

  58. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  59. Hello, Neat post. There is an issue along with your
    web site in internet explorer, may check this? IE still is the
    marketplace chief and a huge element of folks will
    pass over your magnificent writing because of this problem.

  60. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or
    something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive
    the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is
    magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

  61. This post was amazing i actually read your blog very often, and
    you’re constantly coming out with a lot of great
    stuff. I contributed this on my fb, and my followers adored
    it. Keep up the very good work 🙂

  62. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
