Embedded Systems Technologies and Markets

The discovery of the microprocessor started a new trend in information technology that eventually led to the adoption of technology into virtually all aspects of human life. Today, numerous embedded devices surround everybody, from the time they wake up to the time they sleep. Simple devices such as toasters and coffee machines are incorporating microcontrollers that provide powerful features.

The term embedded devices is loosely defined as systems that have some element of programmability. Embedded devices are dedicated to a single functionality, and are often driven by the need to perform a specific task. Design engineers optimize the embedded device for size and cost, or reliability and performance, based on the requirement.
