What peripherals are the most required in Embedded systems?

We are designing a new board and I was not sure what peripherals we should bring out. You helped me to answer some important questions in our survey. In return, I am going to share the results with you. Some are quite interesting. Thank you!

Until today, we have received 37 responses. In the graphs, the column with BOLD text shows how many people voted for that answer.

The most used peripherals

USB and SD card are the winners of the most used peripherals.

The most surprising

Are Wifi and Bluetooth going to be a standard of all the future boards?

The interesting ones

RS232 is not as required as it used to be.

UART is still very popular.

Surprisingly, audio is needed quite a lot.

To have an Ethernet is an advantage.

Display outputs

HDMI is getting to be used more and more.

Video inputs

CSI and MPI Camera inputs are wanted.

HDMI and Analog video inputs are used in some applications.

Power

Looks like most of the boards runs from a single 5V power input.

Price

It’s important to keep board price is bellow $50 USD.
