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. Ninety-eight percent of all microprocessors are manufactured as components of embedded systems.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.
Embedded systems are commonly found in consumer, cooking, industrial, automotive, medical, commercial and military applications.Telecommunications systems employ numerous embedded systems from telephone switches for the network to cell phones at the end user. Computer networking uses dedicated routers and network bridges to route data. Embedded systems range from portable devices such as digital watches and MP3 players, to large stationary installations like traffic lights, factory controllers, and largely complex systems like hybrid vehicles, MRI, and avionics. Complexity varies from low, with a single microcontroller chip, to very high with multiple units, peripherals and networks mounted inside a large chassis or enclosure.
Embedded systems are computers (or microprocessors) that are enclosed ("embedded") in customized hardware. These computers have dedicated functions within a larger mechanical or electrical system and are embedded as part of a complete device often including hardware and mechanical parts. Embedded systems control many devices in common use today. Ninety-eight percent of all microprocessors are manufactured as components of embedded systems.
Embedded systems are based on different types of architectures such as: simple control loop, interrupt-controlled system, cooperative multitasking, preemptive multitasking, microkernels, and monolithic kernels.
The course focuses on the hardware as well as the software knowledge of the embedded system, and helps them build the skills required to develop 8bit/32 bit microcontrollers based on embedded system. It equips students to develop designing ability at system level development of the embedded system, and developing the approaches to master specific method or task through integrated projects.
