The article discusses the impact of hardware and software design on the development of smart wireless communication devices. The use of high-level programming languages increase the processing power and memory size requirements for the products. Emerging tools and methods enable device designers to respond to the changes in industry trends. The tools must be selected based on the specific requirements and objectives of the project. Furthermore, pre-test hardware led to the production of cost-effective devices that satisfy market demands with "must have" technology.
