Design Languages for Embedded Systems

Edwards, Stephen A.

Embedded systems are application-specific computers that interact with the physical world. Each has a diverse set of tasks to perform, and although a very flexible language might be able to handle all of them, instead a variety of problem-domain-specific languages have evolved that are easier to write, analyze, and compile. This paper surveys some of the more important languages, introducing their central ideas quickly without going into detail. A small example of each is included.
