In this paper, we introduce an architecture based approach for the development of large scale embedded software systems. Three essential components which fundamentally describe this architecture based approach are: (1) the structure of the software system, (2) the definition of the architectural components, and (3) the connections between the components. A well designed structure features software reusability, facilitates rapid prototyping, and enhances the software system's life cycle. The architecture based design approach is suitable and applicable to structure software system development criteria such as portability (unified approach), interconnectivity, and/or flexibility (modularly-designed environment).
