Embedded Systems



The material provided through EdX course is provided in a pre-edited form in the above website by authors for wider reading.

An embedded system combines mechanical, electrical, and chemical components along with a computer, hidden inside, to perform a single dedicated purpose.

The capabilities of the microcontrollers embedded into devices has increased over period of time.

 The ARM® Cortex™-M family represents a new class of microcontrollers much more powerful than the devices available ten years ago.

A digital multimeter is a typical embedded system.

There are two ways to develop embedded systems. The first technique uses a microcontroller, like the ARM Cortex M-series. In general, there is no operating system, so the entire software system is developed. These devices are suitable for low-cost, low-performance systems. On the other hand, one can develop a high-performance embedded system around a more powerful microcontroller such as the ARM Cortex A-series. These systems typically employ an operating system and are first designed on a development platform, and then the software and hardware are migrated to a stand-alone embedded platform.
