We survey the synchronous approach to embedded hardware and software systems, its scientific content, and its use in industry. We discuss the concurrency and determinism constraints of embedded applications, and the way in which they are reconciled by the synchronous concurrency model. We present the main synchronous languages, their semantics, and the industrial tools and flows that support them.
