Designing for Embedded Systems
The modern devices have advanced and multi-functional capabilities and o embedded system is the one of the most important component of these devices. 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. These are primarily found in consumer, automotive, industrial, medical, and military applications.
Importance of the Embedded Systems
The importance of embedded systems is growing continuously. The growth rate in embedded systems is more than 10% per annum and it is forecasted there will be over 40 billion devices worldwide by 2020. Today 20% of the value of each car is attributed to embedded electronics and this will increase to an average of 35–50% by 2020. Moreover, the value added to the final product by embedded software is often orders of magnitude higher than the cost of the embedded devices themselves.
Characteristics of the Embedded Systems
The characteristics of the embedded systems are as follows:
- Efficient in energy, cost, weight, run-time, code-size
Embedded Systems in the Electronic Product Development
The embedded system is essential for the electronic product development. Let’s summarize the reasons for the connection:
1. The embedded system is easy to debug, hence easier to operate
2. Precision system integration gives exact memory resources and set of peripherals
3. It is pocket-friendly
4. The complexity and the size of the electronic board has been reduced to a great extent
5. Power consumption has been reduced
6. Improvisation of the power management
7. The design cycle time has been reduced, which has led to fewer repetitions
Various IT companies have come up with the unlimited opportunities in the network of embedded device infrastructure. Evolution of the embedded systems has a remarkable place in the life-changing electronic devices in the modern world.
