The term ‘Embedded system’ is used for a computer or processor based system that has been developed for a specific purpose and objectives.
It is called ‘Embedded’ because the software is embedded into it for a special or particular application. Unlike a PC, the embedded system can’t run a variety of programs or tasks.
Devices where Embedded Systems are used:
- Industrial machines
- Medical equipment
- Household appliances
- Vending machines
- Cellular phones
Embedded systems are considered as a special segment of Electronics industry today.
The software for embedded systems is normally called as firmware. The single program for an embedded system is stored on a chip.
Embedded Systems Components:
Embedded System Hardware:
An embedded system has a hardware platform which is based on a microprocessor or microcontroller. It has other elements also like memory, input output (I/O) devices, and display.
Embedded System Software:
The software of embedded system is to perform a specific function. It is normally written in a high level format. The software can be written in a variety of ways like machine code, programming languages (C, C++ etc.,)
In order to make the Embedded Systems programming easier, embedded system design tools are available today.
EmbeddedJava and Windows XP Embedded are certain operating systems or language platforms which are developed for the embedded purpose.
Embedded Systems: Classifications
Small Scale Embedded Systems
Small scale embedded systems are developed with a single 8 or 16-bit microcontroller. It can even be operated with a battery.
Medium Scale Embedded Systems:
These are designed with a single or 16 or 32 bit microcontrollers, DSPs or RISCs. When developing embedded software for these types of systems, the following programming tools are available.
The programming tools like C, C++, Visual C++, Java, and RTOS, source code engineering tool, simulator, debugger and integrated development environment can be used to develop the medium scale embedded systems.
Sophisticated Embedded Systems
Sophisticated embedded systems have a very complex hardware and software. They require PLAs, IPs, ASIPs, and configurable processors.
Embedded Systems Applications:
- Smart cards
- Telecommunication equipment
- Satellites and missiles
- Consumer electronics
- Computer networking
- Motor control System
- Engine and body safety
- Robotics in assembly unit
- Mobile computing
- Wireless communications
- Security systems
- Image processing
- Network cards
- Monitors and displays
- High definition TVs
- Digital cameras
