Embedded systems are informally defined as a collection of programmable parts surrounded by ASICs and other standard components, that interact continuously with an environment through sensors and actuators. The programmable parts include micro-controllers and Digital Signal Processors (DSPs). Hardware-Software Co-Design of Embedded Systems: The POLIS Approach is intended to give a complete overview of the POLIS system including its formal and algorithmic aspects, and will be of interest to embedded system designers (automotive electronics, consumer electronics and telecommunications), micro-controller designers, CAD developers and students.todaya#39;s cars is another example of added electronic dimension and of unconventional user interface. ... an optimal engine control strategy that minimizes emissions and fuel consumption while delivering the appropriate acceleration to the vehicle. ... Today, embedded systems are designed with an ad hoc approach that is heavily based on earlier experience with similar products and on manual design.
