An embedded system is more than the electronics as most people perceive it. Its important characteristics are low-power, real-time responsiveness, low thermal dissipation, small physical form factor/footprint, low radiation/emission, ruggedness in design and impervious to external radiations etc Embedded systems are more than part of human life. For instance, one cannot imagine life without mobile phones for personal communication. Its presence is virtually unavoidable in almost all facets of human endeavor. The main objective of this workshop is to impart a thorough theoretical introduction in certain key areas of embedded systems along with various programming tools.
