Creating embedded software can be a challenging endeavor. The experience can range from a well-defined and controlled process to shoot-from-the-hip Wild West-style development. No matter where ones development cycle falls in this range, there are elements of the design cycle that are or should be common to them all. These include gathering requirements, creating a design, constructing the software, testing it and then finally maintaining it. The amount of time spent performing any of these activities will vary depending on the design cycle process used but by mastering these areas of the design cycle will ensure that products are developed consistently, on-time and within the allotted budget.
