Frequently asked questions
An embedded system is an electronic computer circuit that includes a central processing unit with computer code that handles a specific task within a larger, functional system. Embedded systems typically run on microprocessors and microcontrollers. They can take input from peripheral devices that sense or detect changes in external situations that influence their function. For example, an embedded system can regulate temperature for a central heating system. Unlike a standard computer, which has many general uses, embedded systems are specialized, making them more effective and efficient for their designed task.
