Embedded Systems Design & Development:
An embedded system is a computer system with a dedicated function within a larger mechanical or electrical system, often with real-time computing constraints It is embedded as part of a complete device often including hardware and mechanical parts. Embedded systems control many devices in common use today.
The key characteristic, however, is being dedicated to handle a particular task. Since the embedded system is dedicated to specific tasks, design engineers can optimize it to reduce the size and cost of the product and increase the reliability and performance. Some embedded systems are mass-produced, benefiting from economies of scale.
