Embedded systems

Posted on October 12, 2017

An embedded system is a computer system with a dedicated function, placed within a larger mechanical or electrical system as part of a complete device. They are found in consumer, industrial sensing, automotive, rapid pathogen detection, biomedical diagnostic instrumentation, fibre optic communication, commercial, and military applications.

Embedded systems have significant advantages:

  • Smaller size.
  • Low power consumption.
  • Rugged operating ranges.
  • Low per-unit cost.
  • Less onerous requirements for their operating system.
  • Rarely need major hardware changes.

Embedded systems can be found in:

  • Autonomous vehicle systems.
  • Consumer and household electronics.
  • GPS receivers.
  • Dedicated routers and network bridges in computers.
  • Transportation control systems.
  • Industrial controllers.
  • Hybrid vehicles.
  • Medical diagnostic equipment.
  • Avionics.
