With the increasing complexity of embedded software and hardware designs, the 2009 end-user data books provide insight into the behavior, opinions, and demographics of embedded engineers, the degree to which embedded system engineering tasks are converging, and key system engineering trends likely to impact embedded systems manufacturers and solution providers over the short and long term.
This end-user data is based on detailed Web survey responses collected in the late May 2009 to mid September 2009 time-frame from over 780 embedded systems engineers worldwide and offer an understanding about the dynamics of the embedded market as they relate to current and future product development trends. This detailed end-user data provides access to VDC’s extensive knowledge of the embedded developer community and is intended to provide insight into specific embedded developer communities’ current development and future project trends based on the individual report topics.
The Embedded System Engineering Survey Data is available in reports offering segmentations by:
- Operating Systems
- Development Tools
- Vertical Market
- Processor Architecture
- Engineer Type
What’s new? different? the same?
- Although these reports are organized into six volumes similarly to previous offerings, this year’s reports also include PowerPoint presentations, highlight key findings and offering some analysis around the results and broader market trends.
- We continue to ask many of the same questions as previous years for year-over-year comparison.

Who should be interested?
Software (ESW, ESL, and EDA) and hardware (silicon and board) solution providers (whether currently engaged in the embedded market or not) should find this information of interest, as these reports provide valuable insight into the types of current and future requirements and methodologies that companies are using to engineer embedded systems.
This information can be used to assist companies in differentiating solutions, developing competitive strategies, and engineering products that better meet current and future customer requirements. In addition, the data can also be used to support key marketing and sales efforts.
Systems manufacturers and semiconductor suppliers will also find value in this data in developing an understanding of key system engineering trends that will impact their business in the short and long term, gaining a perspective on the embedded software and hardware market, and an understanding of the vendor options available to them.
What information are we collecting in 2010?
VDC will be launching an update to this Survey in the Q1/Q2 time-frame of 2010 as part of our 2010 Embedded Software Market Intelligence Service.
With the 2010 Service currently under founding sponsorship, early subscribers can provide input into what additional questions are asked of the embedded engineering community.
We are also interested in your general feedback and suggestions, so please reply with comments!
