As its name suggests, Embedded means something that is attached to another thing. An embedded system can be thought of as a computer hardware system having software embedded in it. An embedded system can be an independent system or it can be a part of a large system. An embedded system is a micro controller or microprocessor based system which is designed to perform a specific task. For example, a fire alarm is an embedded system; it will sense only smoke.
Unique Service Point(USP)
Embedded Systems Division (ESD) designs, develops and delivers Embedded Solutions and Services to customers in Telecom, Law & Defense, Automotive, and Consumer Electronics sectors. We provide innovative product design services including complete system design, software and hardware implementation, verification and testing.
An embedded system is a computer system that is part of a larger system or machine. It is a system with a dedicated function within a larger electrical or mechanical system.
Essential components of embedded system includes:
5. I/O circuits
6. System application specific circuits
8. It ensures the availability of System Memory
9. It checks the Processor Speed availability
10. The need to limit power lost when running the system continuously
11. Real Time Operating System
12. It runs a process as per scheduling and do the switching from one process to another
With embedded system, it is possible to replace dozens or even more of hardware logic gates, input buffers, timing circuits, output drivers, etc. with a relatively cheap microprocessor.
Course Duration of Embedded System is 14 Weeks.
10+2 or Equilant.
