Hey there, (I apologize if this is in the wrong section - please move it if it is) I'm an EE undergrad, and I'm wondering how much embedded software/programming is involved in fields like control and signal processing. To be a bit more specific, by "embedded software," I'm referring to things such as programming microcontrollers/FPGAs, dealing with embedded/real-time OS, and writing device drivers. I realize that embedded systems are so prevalent that it may be impossible to go into any area of EE without encountering them in some fashion, but I'd like to avoid dealing with them too frequently if at all possible. I can't really decide which among control, signal processing and analog electronics I find more interesting, while embedded systems has always scared me. Anyway, that's just an aside. Thanks!
