ABSTRACT
<p>The embedded-software market has grown swiftly in the last decade and will continue to do so in coming years. Embedded software?s specific properties, such as hardware dependencies, make its development different from nonembedded software. So, you might expect that this domain would employ specific software development technologies. An inventory conducted at several European embedded-software-development companies shows that, remarkably, this isn?t true. However, the inventory results concerning requirements engineering and architecture design at these companies suggest that more specifically aimed development technologies are necessary. Analysis of the results has identified possibilities for future research in customizing existing technologies and developing new technologies for embedded software development.</p>
