Embedded, Networked, and Wireless Systems

Embedded systems are computers within devices not generally considered to be computers, e.g., vehicles, medical devices, smartphones, sensor networks, etc. The embedded systems market is growing 50% faster than that for general-purpose computing. Embedded system designers frequently face the problem of designing compact, complex, high-performance, inexpensive, low-power, real-time, reliable, secure, and wireless devices within a relatively very short time to market. ACAL research in this area covers the entire “stack,” from transistors and circuits to operating system and application software.
