Embedded systems

  1. 1. Embedded SystemsMy name is David and I work with Dell. This presentation is about embedded systems.What are they, and how do they work? Formore information about embedded systems click here or visit Dell.com
  2. 2. What is an embedded system?An embedded system is a microprocessor usedas a component in another piece of technologyIt is used in things like:• cell phone• digital camera• appliances• car antilock brake system
  3. 3. What an embedded system is not• An embedded system is not a microprocessorused in a “traditional” computing application– desktop– laptop– workstation
  4. 4. 4 Major types of embedded systems1. General– similar to traditional computer systems, in a smaller package– PDA’s– portable games2. Communications– cell phones3. Signal Processing– video and audio4. Control– real time feedback control– automotive– aerospace– appliances
  5. 5. Benefits of embedded systemsEmbedded system applications have benefits overtraditional applications. These include:• cost• reliability• safety• real time critical• interface to environment through sensors andactuators• “hybrid” behavior – interaction of continuousdynamics with logic and finite state machines
