Modern C++ in Embedded Development: Expressive Compile-Time Computation
Amar Mahmutbegovic

C++11 made a significant impact on C++, bringing in features such as auto, lambdas, and constexpr. These features modernized language, making it more expressive.

This talk guides embedded developers who dominantly use C for their daily tasks through compile-time evaluation of functions and expressions in C++. It demonstrates language capabilities to generate lookup tables and mathematical signals in compile time while providing expressive abstractions similar to Matlab.

The talk will help embedded developers to better understand modern C++ capabilities, and it will cover the following topics:

  • Constexpr variables, 
  • Constexpr functions, 
  • Operator overloading, 
  • Lambdas, 
  • Templates, 
  • Abbreviated function template. 

The talk aims to demonstrate C++’s compile-time computation capability through a practical example while gradually guiding the audience through the language features needed to build the example.

When would someone use constexpr verse consteval?

You would use consteval to enforce compile-time evaluation. Calling consteval function with run-time arguments would result in compile error.
Constexpr functions can be used both with const expressions and run-time arguments.
