A brief description about "Advanced Embedded Systems Using Linux and ARM".

This program is designed to prepare the engineering graduates with requisite technical skills so as to incorporate intelligence into the Embedded and electro-mechanical devices. The engineers should be able to do the automation for the complete process.

During this program we would concentrate on C, Shell Scripting, Linux Internals, Embedded Linuc, ARM.

Embedded Linux is the use of Linux in embedded computer systems such as mobile phones, personal digital assistants, media players, set-top boxes, and other consumer electronics devices, networking equipment, machine control, industrial automation, navigation equipment and medical instruments. According to survey conducted by Venture Development Corporation, Linux was used by 38% of embedded engineers.

Linux is the version of Linux running on processors with a Memory Management Unit (MMU). Processors without MMU can run a modified version of Linux called uClinux. The uClinux tab provides pre-built uClinux images for specific ARM processors

Key benefits of Linux on ARM

  • Complete scalable operating system providing a reliable multi-tasking environment
  • Based on an open source model (GPL)
  • Leverage a wide range of UNIX and open source applications
  • Early availability on ARM processor-based platforms
  • Used in many ARM technology-based designs including networking and wireless space
  • Broad support through open discussion forums

The power, stability, reliability, flexibility, and scalability of Linux, combined with its support for a multitude of microprocessor architectures, hardware devices, graphics support, and communications protocols have established Linux as an increasingly popular software platform for a vast array of projects, devices  and products. Use of Linux spans the full spectrum of computing applications that are vastly scalable, from tiny Linux wrist watch, to hand-held devices like PDAs,  cell phones and consumer entertainment systems, to Internet appliances, thin clients, firewalls, robotics, telephony infrastructure equipment, and even to cluster-based supercomputers.

Despite the origins of Linux as a PC architecture operating system, It is now ported to numerous non-x86 CPUs, with and without memory management units, including PowerPC, ARM, MIPS, 68K, and even microcontrollers. And there's more coming, all the time!

Future Prospects:

The number of devices with embedded intelligence is growing exponentially, and with them the demand for an integrated operating system. Embedded Linux is a Linux-based operating system that is encapsulated by or dedicated to a device or system. It is included in commercially available products or hardware—such as cell phones, media players, firewalls, industrial control systems and other devices. Its functionality is limited to the  equirements of the device.

The embedded software market is growing steadily due to growth in consumer electronics, especially in mobile and wireless products. IDC expects that the embedded operating system market has grown from US$461 million in 2006 to US$3532 million in 2014. As a result, embedded operating systems could achieve a 30 percent share of the overall operating system market. Due to its scalability, configurability and affordability,  embedded Linux has become a highly desirable operating system for embedded design.
Linus Torvalds wanted Linux to be a desktop operating system but that he saw the embedded space as the big growth area. Usage of Linux in embedded development projects crossed a threshold in the year 2008, with more than 50% of the professionals saying that they are currently using it. Usage of Linux has been growing year over year, but didn't cross the halfway mark until 2008. More than 61% believed their company would be using Linux within the next two years.

The ARM family of processors has continued its growth with 30% of the readers using it, while 25% are using x86 variants. ARM overtook x86 three years ago; that trend looks to be continuing with respondents seeing 31% ARM versus 23% x86 over the next two years. Kingman said that he thinks Intel is trying to reverse that trend because spending on consumer devices is predicted to "outstrip IT spending".
