Embedded Systems Software Engineering deals with the software that is embedded into hardware through programmable memory. This kind of software works very close to the hardware and makes direct impact on the underlying hardware. Computer software, written to control machines or devices that are not typically thought of as computers. It is typically specialized for the particular hardware that it runs on and has time and memory constraints. This term is sometimes used interchangeably with firmware, although firmware can also be applied to ROM-based code on a computer, on top of which the OS runs, whereas embedded software is typically the only software on the device in question.

A precise and stable characteristic feature is that no or not all functions of embedded software are initiated/controlled via a human interface, but through machine-interfaces instead.

Embedded software are used in the electronics in cars, telephones, modems, robots, appliances, toys, security systems, pacemakers, televisions,  set-top boxes and digital watches etc. This software can be very simple, such as lighting controls running on an 8-bit microprocessor and a few kilobytes of memory, or can become very sophisticated in applications such as airplanesmissiles, and process control systems.

Embedded software is a type of software that is built into hardware systems. This software is typically designed to perform one specific function, although a single piece of hardware may contain multiple pieces of software embedded in it. Any piece of technology that has circuit boards and computer chips will likely have embedded software within it, from digital clocks to cell phones to calculators. These systems allow many of the advanced functions that are common in modern devices.

Prospects:

A career in embedded systems software is one of the promising career options available for engineers today. For fresh engines who are done with courses in embedded systems software engineering and are worthy enough of being hired, the future cannot be more exciting or promising. As embedded systems software engineer, they will get to work on technology that touches the life of the common man. They will be required to write software that determines the controls of electronic and smart equiipments/devices etc. Embedded systems software engineers engineers will also get to work on high-end systems ranging from robots to factory assembly lines and industrial automation. Embedded systems engineers are most likely to get placed in companies dealing with the engineering requirements and products development. Companies that specialize in building embedded systems for controlling railway signals, mills, petrochemical plants, pharmaceutical factories, bottling plants, defence, aerospace etc. will be more than willing to hire embedded systems software engineers. Embedded systems are also used in monitors, scanners, machines used for chemotherapy, diagnostic equipment  pacemakers, ventilators, etc. So, this makes for just another career option for experts in embedded systems engineering.

Embedded Systems developement in India is expected to triple in next 3 years. The markets reached approximately $15 billion by 2009 and now hah grown exponentially.

Current Trends
 
According to recently released NASSCOM report, the total addressable embedded system R&D global opportunity is expected to reach approx. $89  billion by 2015 where India alone could contribute approx. $15 billion in size. This means that Indian technology firms and engineering designers will have to drive actual product innovation and move towards product ownership.
 
Presently many Indian companies provide high level software designs and board level designs in a few cases. Not much work is carried out in terms of application design engineering, hardware design and innovation towards customized product development. This lack of domain expertise in industry is basic impediment for future growth.
 
Leveraging and growing in these areas can help Indian industry to have significant improvement in embedded systems space and a few companies already have started working towards this goal.
