A Clear-Cut Explanation To Embedded Systems!

Embedded systems come in a wide variety of sizes and complexities and are hence a bit hard to define. Let’s try and get a basic understanding of what an embedded system really is and how to classify them. What is an embedded system? A simple definition would be, an embedded system is a “special purpose computer” purpose-built to serve a specific purpose. For example, a calculator is a special-purpose computer as compared to a PC. To understand what this really means, let’s take a closer look at the definition by looking at the individual words. Let’s first have a look...
