Embedded Systems - Not a Big Deal?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Was there much of a response to the opinion change of Dave Hall (as cited in this newspaper article)? Moreover, was his reputation as an "embeddeds expert" widely accepted in the Y2k community?


Does anyone have any other experts on this subject and links to their best guesstimate with regards to the potential problem?

Go to Gary North's site, he has well over 100 articles written on embedded chips. He has an excellent resource site.

In the archives under "Miscellaenous," there's a thread called "Tested Over 1,000 Chips - All Were Compliant."

It's old news that the embedded chip/embedded system problem isn't as big as originally estimated. I've been hearing that since at least the end of last year. The problem was and still is that in a complex system, even just one failure could have major consequences.

A recent thread that's loaded with comments and links about embeddeds can be found at:
