1999 Embedded Market Survey

For the history buffs: here is a PDF of the 1999 Embedded Market Survey, produced by Embedded Systems Programming magazine, the Embedded Systems Conference, and Embedded.com. Click here to see the PDF. If you have not registered on the site yet, you'll need to register and log in to access the PDF. Registration is free and will help keep Embedded.com in business. Also, registering on Embedded.com means we'll send you the email invitation to the annual Embedded Market Survey so you, too, may participate in the study, if you are an embedded systems designer/developer/engineer.
