  • What does "end-to-end" mean?
    1 project | /r/embedded | 17 Dec 2022
    I sometimes see the term "end-to-end", and it always passes right by my ears as marketing jargon. For example, there was a recent post today that linked to this page:, and you'll find the statement "... end-to-end platform for adding voice to anything on your terms". I did a quick Google search and it seems like the term is used in many different contexts (e.g., encryption, enterprise software for product development, etc.), but to be honest, I'm just not getting it. Maybe someone can explain here within the realm of embedded software? Could you provide some examples as well?
