An embedded systems is similiar to a computer system which is designed to perform dedicated functions.Embedded itself means it is a part of a complete device with both hardware as well as software parts.It is controlled by microcontrollers or digital signal processors(DSP).An embedded systems companies benefits a lot from embedded systems since it is dedicated to a specific task.It can be designed to reduced size and cost with increased reliability and perfomance
An embedded systems range from portable devices such as digital watches and MP3 players, to large stationary installations like traffic lights, factory.
An embedded systems design characteristics includes
• Application specific
• Digital signal processing in ECS
• Reactive
• Real-time
• Distributed
The field in which embedded systems works includes consumer electronics(eg:cameras),consumer products(eg:microwave oven),automobiles(eg:engine control),computer applications(eg: printers),emerging multimedia applications and consumer electronics(eg: cellular phones,TV set-top boxes)etc.
