First of all, a huge bunch of thanks to the Emertxe Information Technology.I'm from Davangere, Karnataka and I did my Engineering at UBDT College of Engineering, Davangere, in the year 2021.I wanted to pursue my career in the Embedded field, and so I came to know about this institute.I contacted them via phone calls, and just after my 8th sem results are out, I joined the online batch in August 2021.The teaching of the concepts was very good and all the trainers, lab mentors were very helpful throughout the period.The placement is also very supportive and they'll give us a lot of opportunities, as a result, now within 5 months from joining, I got placed at Cientra Tech Solutions.Here I'm writing this feedback with my whole heart & again thanks to all the administrative & teaching departments of Emertxe. 🙂

I have attended the one month online internship of embedded system which was organized by Emertxe Information Technology, Bangalore. I really had a great exposure about Embedded system during this internship, live interaction and hands on training was organized so that every doubts was clarified . The teachers and their teachings provided here was so clear so that anyone from non technical background as well can understand every concepts clearly. Explained each and every line of the code and the test that was conducted every week was very helpful and at the end the project they had given was also very helpful to show our understanding and knowledge.Thank you so much for this opportunity given by emertxe technology.

Short term Courses in Embedded Systems Programming

Co-created with top notch companies

Emertxe training programs are co-created with companies who are building real-time solutions. Our tightly integrated model with companies ensure we teach what companies actually want. Have a look into what some of them have to say.

Emertxe student performance was Excellent

Our interview rounds were extremely rigorous. Emertxe students performance was excellent during all 3 rounds of F2F interviews. Though they have 6 months training background, interviewers mentioned that their performance was equivalent to 30 months experienced engineers. This immensely saved ramp up time of the team. Emertxe approach of focusing on the core knowledge along with the attitude-transformation is commendable. Looking forward for long term association with Emertxe.

Have Good grasp over the subjects

Our company SHARP Software Development India Pvt Ltd. is a division of SHARP Corporation, Japan and a CMMI Level 5 organization. We are front-runners in the printer products and hence strongly rely on embedded programming. We had some fresher openings in Embedded Systems. Thus, during research we came across Emertxe institute and it proved to be very fruitful as we hired candidates from here. These candidates had a good grasp over the subject expertise they underwent during their course under Emertxe and are proving to be a valuable asset till date. We wish this institute to keep evolving and adapting to the future technological trend and be producing good candidates like always, every year. This immensely saved ramp up time of the team. Emertxe approach of focusing on the core knowledge along with the attitude-transformation is commendable. Looking forward for long term association with Emertxe.

Knowledge to Skill Transformation by Emertxe

Skilled workforce is the desire of any company. Our system of education system has not aligned itself to cater to this requirement. The industry needs more players like Emertxe who not only understand technology, but also understand how to convert that knowledge quotient into skilled resources. Best wishes to team Emertxe.

Substantial Contributions by Emertxe Students

Thanks team Emertxe for providing us with good quality candidates to fill important positions at NXP over the last couple of years. The engineers who joined different teams ramped up quickly and are making substantial contributions in Dev, Test and Tools teams. This was possible only because of high quality training (with emphasis on fundamentals) that was imparted to engineers during their stint, while undergoing embedded systems course at Emertxe.

Project driven Learning – Embedded Linux

Emertxe weekend workshops ensure you build on a real-time projects based on your course. This working output ensures you are able to apply your learnings from the workshop. Such approach makes us the best Institute to learn courses in Embedded linux porting and programming.

Kernel Optimization – Footprint and boot-time reduction on ARM

Kernel Optimization – Footprint and boot-time reduction on ARM

Project brief

In multi-tasking Embedded systems, having an optimized Kernel is one of the key requirements. With clear understanding of source code organization and various turning methodologies Linux Kernel size can be optimized. In the similar way understanding U-Boot, optimization of boot time can also achieved.

The goal of this project is to gain exposure in terms of Kernel optimization by creating a customized Kernel for an ARM based target.

Technologies used
  • Kernel source code organization & configuration options
  • U-Boot, Linux Kernel and Init system understanding
  • ARM target schematics

WiFi interface bring-up & Application porting

WiFi interface bring-up & Application porting

Project brief

In custom Embedded systems not all the interfaces would be working by default. This requires bringing-up specific interfaces either by writing a device driver from the scratch or compiling pre-existing drive module gets compiled into the custom Kernel, after which applications can be successfully ported.

The goal of this project is to compile a WiFi driver into the custom Kernel and port any standard TCP/IP based network applications on to the ARM target. Post porting target should be able to successfully do data exchange with host.

Technologies used
  • Linux device driver – Basic level understanding
  • Kernel customization
  • Application porting
