Rust is a powerful and secure programming language that is well suited for systems programming, network programming, and other applications where speed and reliability are important. Combined with C and C++, this makes Rust particularly well-suited for embedded systems programming.
For example, through a combination of compile-time checks and run-time safety features, Rust explicitly focuses on preventing buffer overflows and null pointer dereferences that can cause security vulnerabilities or crashes.
Our embedded engineers appreciate that Rust is expressive and flexible, with powerful features such as pattern matching, closures and iteration, and clean and concise syntax. They are comfortable with a programming language designed to be fast, efficient, and secure.
