Embedded Hardware & Systems Trends for 2012 and Beyond

November 16th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

VDC Research currently has a research program called “STRATEGIC INSIGHTS 2012: EMBEDDED HARDWARE & SYSTEMS” where they analyze potential opportunities and give forecasts for embedded systems market through 2016.

Some recent insights from their ongoing coverage of the Embedded Hardware & Systems market include:

  • The Communications / Networking market is engaged in a period of dynamic change that is redefining the sector’s processing requirements.
  • FPGAs & Linux are redefining embedded market growth requirements.
  • The smart grid is creating new opportunities for embedded processors.
  • Single board computers are enabling next-generation computing for military / aerospace applications.
  • The Institute for Supply Management’s PMI index continues to demonstrate isolated pockets of regional growth, suggesting that new project starts and sustained unit shipments will maintain embedded market growth in 2012.

The final reports should be available in 2012 as follows:

I understand that each report would cost 2500 USD, but complimentary executive summary would also be made available.

You can also visit Embedded Software and Hardware Trends for 2011 blog entry published last December for reference as well as access the free executive summaries.
