Frequently Asked Questions

Hardware is a physical system consisting of electronic devices that are designed to work together as a single unit. The software comes in the form of set up files and can be easily changed by the end-user. It acts as a bridge between a user and hardware. Whereas, firmware is a special kind of software that serves a very narrow purpose for a piece of hardware.

Key characteristics of a middleware platform include the following:

  • Cloud Compatibility
  • On-premise Support
  • Ease of Development
  • Interoperability
  • Adaptable

C and C++ languages have been most common when it comes to firmware development. However, we’ve also witnessed an increase in usage of languages such as Java, Python, Lua, Rust, Ada, JavaScript, Go, etc.

Firmware is a piece of programming code embedded in a particular hardware for a very narrow purpose. Whereas an operating system is a base software that lays down the foundation layer on a computer or device.

Embedded systems are devices or machines that can operate with zero or minimum human supervision. They’re a combination of hardware and software. IoT, on the other hand, is a technology that allows these devices to connect and communicate with each other to create a network of embedded systems. Thus, IoT can be termed as a subset of embedded systems.
