"Diverse" is certainly as word that applies to embedded systems. In fact, it's difficult to really define embedded systems because they can be a windshield wiper controller, a
home theater remote control or an Internet backbone switch that handles
gigabytes of data per second. VxWorks has been used in all of these
types of systems and can do this because it offers flexible solutions
for our customers.
As systems become larger and more complex customers
are usually seeking more options such as middleware for networking or
graphics. As systems get smaller, however, customers are usually
seeking less options and the ability to configure systems exactly the
way they want.
