C++ for Embedded Systems Training Course

Course Code



21 hours (usually 3 days including breaks)


  • An general understanding of C++


Is C++ suitable for embedded systems such as microcontrollers and real-time-operating-systems?

Should object-oriented-programming be used in microcontrollers?

Is C++ too far removed from the hardware to be efficient?

This instructor-led, live training addresses these questions and demonstrates through discussion and practice how C++ can be used to develop embedded systems with code that is accurate, readable, and efficient. Participants put theory into practice through the creation of a sample embedded application in C++.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the principles of object-oriented modelling, embedded software programming and real-time programming
  • Produce code for embedded systems that is small, fast and safe
  • Avoid code bloat from templates, exceptions, and other language features
  • Understand the issues related to using C++ in safety-critical and real-time systems
  • Debug a C++ program on a target device


  • Developers
  • Designers

Format of the course

  • Part lecture, part discussion, exercises and heavy hands-on practice
