Arduino is an open source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for anyone making interactive projects. Arduino designs and manufactures computer open-source hardware, open-source software, and microcontroller-based kits for building digital devices and interactive objects that can sense and control physical devices. Arduino project provides an integrated development environment (IDE) based on a programming language named Processing, which also supports the languages C and C++. It provides a low cost, easy way for professionals to create devices that interact with their environment using sensors and actuators. Common examples of such devices include simple robots, thermostats, and motion detectors.
Bolt is an Internet of Things platform (Hardware+Software) that enables us to build IoT products and projects. Bolt's incredibly small yet highly functional prototyping board and intuitive product building experience makes your ideas to be rapidly prototyped within days with minimal cost and manhours. Simplified APIs let us setup and manage the devices with minimal effort and time.
Android is a mobile operating system (OS) currently developed by Google, based on the Linux kernel and designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. It has been the best-selling OS on tablets and on smartphones since 2013, and has the largest installed user base. Android's source code is released by Google under open source licenses, although most Android devices ultimately ship with both open source and proprietary software, including required proprietary components for Google's services. It is popular with technology companies that require an optimized, low-cost and customizable operating system for high-tech devices.
iOS is a mobile operating system created and developed by Apple Inc. and distributed exclusively for Apple hardware. It is the operating system that presently powers many of the company's mobile devices, including the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It is the second most popular mobile operating system in the world by sales, after Android.
Java is a general purpose computer programming language that is concurrent, class based, object oriented, and specifically designed to have as few implementation dependencies as possible. It is intended to let application developers "write once, run anywhere", meaning that compiled Java code can run on all platforms that support Java without the need for recompilation. Java applications are typically compiled to bytecode that can run on any Java virtual machine (JVM) regardless of computer architecture. As of 2016, Java is one of the most popular programming languages in use, particularly for client-server web applications. The latest version is Java 8, which is currently supported for free by Oracle, although earlier versions are supported both by Oracle and other companies on a commercial basis.
The .NET Framework is a comprehensive programming model for building mobile, desktop and web applications that run on Windows. .NET Framework is a software framework developed by Microsoft that runs primarily on Microsoft Windows. It includes a large class library known as Framework Class Library (FCL) and provides language interoperability across several programming languages.
Embedded Systems programming is different from developiong applications for desktop computers. Embedded C is a set of language extensions for the C Programming language by the C Standards committee to address commonality issues that exist between C extensions for different embedded systems. Historically, embedded C programming requires nonstandard extensions to the C language in order to support features such as fixed-point arithmetic, multiple distinct memory banks, and basic I/O operations. Even though C is not used as a mainstream language for general purpose applications, it still has a strong hold in embedded programming. Due to the wide acceptance of C in embedded systems, various kinds of support tools like compilers & cross compilers came up, and all this facilitated development of embedded systems using C. C is the most widely used programming language for embedded processors/controllers even today.
C++ is a general purpose programming language. It has imperative, object oriented and generic programming features, while providing facilities for low-level memory manipulation.
It was designed with a bias towards system programming for embedded, resource constrained and large systems, with performance, efficiency and flexibility of use as its design highlights. C++ has also been found useful in many other contexts, with key strengths being software infrastructure in resource-constrained applications, including desktop applications, servers, and performance critical applications.
