The convergence of Computing, Communication and Entertainment has created a new opportunity for Software and Solutions firms. At the heart of majority of electronics driving these markets is System –On-Chip (SoC). The product engineering (hardware & software), validation and field deployment of gadgets and systems powered by the  SoCs face a lot of challenges  in terms of:

  • Hardware-Software Integration
  • Optimal utilization of the hardware
  • Re-targeting and upgrading the system level software  for product upgrade

One can summarize the challenges as:

  • Multi disciplinary skills (application software, Middleware frame-works, embedded software) under one roof
  • Shorter time for product release
