The Futures of Real Time Embedded Systems in High Volume Printing

Embedded system developers face many and sometimes conflicting challenges. To increase efficiency and drive down hardware cost, they must aim for ever higher levels of system integration. But to keep applications manageable and scaleable, they need solutions that are as general and modular as possible. At the same time, embedded system complexity rises, quality standards go up and development time needs to decrease.

With such opposing forces, how can the development of embedded systems still remain successful, maintainable and reliable?

This white paper gives an overview of how embedded system engineers can cope with these issues, now and in the future. It does so by showing what successful strategies we have developed in the past few years. Taking the development of the fastest duplex cut sheet printer in the world as a case example, we outline four elements of successful embedded software design:

  • Model driven development as the leading method for designing and building real-time systems.
  • A standard real-time embedded software architecture.
  • Reuse of software as a “company philosophy”.
  • Systematic approach to quality control.
