In everyday life, people get used to the electronics industry originated archieve-ments, which have already been interlocked with most of the possible activities. The analog technology of the last century was not capable of producing such devices, that were meant to serve comfort, mainly due to higher physical volume demands. But as Moore’s law predicted, the minimization era reduced the minimum feature size of the on-chip integrated transistors below 20nm, and made it possible to manufacture pocket-sized smart phones, or smart watches. Developers push to conqueer all aspects of life by designing embedded systems, however this mission turns out to be complicated. Be-sides, meeting the customer requirements, they have to go through all the steps of pro-duct development. This document also leads the reader through the mentioned phases, introducing an individual device implementation. Selecting the proper parts overtakes the drawing of the schematic design, or the printed circuit board. Right after production, bring-up process follows to check if power supply and oscillator circuitry worked as they have to. Writing firmware for the microcontroller can happen in paralell with the former steps, ended up by being burned into the flash memory. In addition, my thesis work sets an aim to improve an earlier-made gadget on a completely new platform. Compared to the pre-version, almost every features/parameters have been further developed, which were mainly carried out by exchanging the components. In contrast to the intelligent clock, the newly created media center (TFT Screen, SD Card, Music Playing Facility) is emphasized now.

Studying the chapters, reader can aquire some knowledge of implementing em-bedded designs, furthermore, instanced solutions may inspire the one regarding his/her own project to construct.
