Electronic Design Customized As Per Client's SpecificationsAlmost all the electronic items that are used on a day to day basis by the people use embedded micro controllers in them. Electronic items like refrigerators, television sets, washing machines, microwave ovens, automobiles and many others use embedded micro controllers. There are companies which provide high quality services in electronic product design, software development, prototyping and manufacturing. All this is customized as per the specifications of the customer. Micro controller of 8, 16 or 32-bit along with FPGA is used by the companies to provide embedded systems design. The microprocessor or a processor is embedded into the electronics design in case of an embedded system. Microprocessors are also called micro controllers.
The software system that controls the functions of the embedded system gives a lot of flexibility to change easily. There is no need to work on re-designing the hardware. Despite its wide presence in most of the electronic systems and its use in most of the designs, embedded systems design is treated as a completely separate service because of the fact that there are customers who approach the designers exclusively for this service.
The normal process of creating an electronic design as per the requirements of the customer is to first make a note of all the specifications that are taken from the customer. Once the specifications for the design are taken, the first step is to design the prototype or electronic hardware. Most of the customers may not be able to understand the technical jargon involved with the electronics field. In such cases, the company generally takes down the specifications in simple English and converts it into the electronic language to proceed with the designing part.
There are various stages involved in the process of electronic design. A road map is laid down for each and every stage and a feasibility study is conducted to assess the various kinds of risk that could potentially create a problem in the future. There is also a cost estimation involved to identify unnecessary expenditures and reduce the cost. After doing a final review to ensure that all the final and modified specifications are in place, the finalized process is then split into various modules. After the development of the design is completed, testing is conducted to ensure everything is in place. The entire process can be manipulated to suit the requirements of the customers. This is done to ensure that the design assists with the overall work flow rather than becoming a hurdle to the process.
