Designing and Developing Embedded Systems


An embedded system is a dedicated machine that achieves specific functions as opposed to a general-purpose machine that can function many tasks. The reason it's called an embedded system is that the processing unit is embedded or hidden within the product. For example, a washing machine functions to clean clothes, but embedded within is a network of controllers and processing units to ensure proper washing cycles.
