Essential Deployment Technologies
As far as the total costs of embedded system design when developing an embedded device, one of the first key engineering milestones is deciding which technology to implement as the system’s primary controller. In addition to considering processor architectures, operating system capabilities, and other components, you must decide which portion of the system to design and which portion to buy off the shelf. By designing and building a custom controller, you can completely customize the end solution and optimize costs, but any design specification changes or oversights can cause lengthy and expensive delays. Alternatively, using an off-the-shelf platform increases the cost of goods sold (COGS), and you may pay for features that are not necessary for your design. Nevertheless, off-the-shelf systems typically offer a faster validation cycle and, therefore, shorter time to market. This webcast outlines two options for developing a new controller – build or buy – and discusses the technical and financial risks associated with both.
