Dear friends,

Can anyone give a clear explanation about the role of firmware engineer in
embedded field.

Thanks and regards

You could start by asking what firmware is and what engineer is. Perhaps you already know half of the answer.

The firmware engineer is the one who is screwed. Vladimir Vassilevsky DSP and Mixed Signal Design Consultant http://www.abvolt.com

Sure. The firmware engineer designs the hardware and software of an embedded application. -- [mail]: Chuck F (cbfalconer at maineline dot net) [page]: <http://cbfalconer.home.att.net> Try the download section. ** Posted from http://www.teranews.com **

Isn't that an embedded engineer? I would say the firmware engineer designs the software of an embedded application. Then has to debug the hardware.

That is such a loosely defined question that I will give you one possible solution The engineer designs, tests and then hands over the manufacturing package for items that keep 'wares' 'firm', these are usually 'embedded'. In other other words he designs bras. -- Paul Carpenter | paul@pcserviceselectronics.co.uk <http://www.pcserviceselectronics.co.uk/> PC Services <http://www.pcserviceselectronics.co.uk/fonts/> Timing Diagram Font <http://www.gnuh8.org.uk/> GNU H8 - compiler & Renesas H8/H8S/H8 Tiny <http://www.badweb.org.uk/> For those web sites you hate

Hi, I would compare it with human body, imaging HW are its bones and muscle, and firmware is its brain. Firmware engineer it what makes its brain work properly and efficiently ^^.

Hence most embedded engineers requiring psychiatric help? :-) -- \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ \/\/\/\/\ Chris Hills Staffs England /\/\/\/\/ \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
