I am still having trouble over the definition of embedded. :-)

It seems backwards to me that I read documents coded in acronyms and write code documented with LongVariableNames.

@betajet: How much is the term ASSP = Application-Specific Standard Part actually used?

I think it depends on one's audience. I'm reasonably confidant that my mother and her friends don't use it at all. By comparrison, I would say that a large number of the people with whom I rub shoulders on a daily basis use it very commonly indeed.

I'd be interested to hear what others have to say about this.

How much is the term ASSP = Application-Specific Standard Part actually used?  Until today, I though it stood for Application-Specific Signal Processor :-)  I've looked at any number of data sheets for complex chips like the SMSC LAN9512 USB hub with Ethernet, and they don't seem to need the term.  I would think that any non-customized chip you can buy from a vendor is by default one of their standard parts, so you only need an additional term like ASIC if it's customer-specific.

IoT Network Shoot Out
July 16, 1pm EDT Thursday

Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion. Join in and ask his guests questions.
