The trend is nothing. The Invention is all. It's a very big difference between TRENDS (or megaTRENDS) and what can be after an invention. What you see now and what will be are different. The future will be else. I have a fundamental invention in the software model. I would like you see my web site: www.geocities.com/gmatei2000, or http://gheorghematei.blogspot.com. The current software model is over. In the software and business model comes a great invention, a new kind of thinking.

Gentlemen, You should keep in mind that model driven development will only be accepted if it can be shown to dramatically reduce both time and cost. As well we don't yet know what the drawbacks are to it's use, or how flexible this new paradigm is or promises to be. As well what is the overhead and can it be shown to generate code as tight as assembler or C. We've all been burned before by the "Halleluja Chorus" of academics and tools vendors promising software salvation if only we repent the sin of old tools and methodologies.

The vast majority of the embedded designers I know typically create MCU-based systems -- they rarely even consider using a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA).

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
