    Learning embedded


    Hi,
    I want to know what are the relevant fields in embedded as per job requirements.
    I think that we have

    1) Device driver jobs.
    2) Posix threads etc jobs.
    3) Board bring up.

    Please let me know if am missing something here.

    I want this thread to be used by beginners to choose a field in embedded.

    Every single application domain you can apply embedded solutions to. The current leader is cell phones. That implies a long list of protocols and technologies. Second would probably be ASIC coding, followed by game consoles and then robotics. The thing is that all those "domains" have a lot of subdomains.

    Knowledge of electronics and physics are commonly required.

    Beginners don't usually get to chose. Deep domain knowledge generally comes from experience and there's a whole list of factors that will determine the early experiences of a beginner.
    I no longer wish to be associated with this site.
