A specialized system located, typically, in a single system board with the operating system and programs accessed from ROM. While most consumers aren't aware that they exist, they are extremely common, ranging from industrial systems to VCRs and many Net devices.

An application program built for a microprocessor running in real-time. An embedded system usually is part of a larger, non-computer system, hence the term "embedded." The TASKING product line is designed for embedded systems programming.
Computer system that is an integral part of a larger system or subsystem that performs or controls a function, either in whole or in part.
This refers to a system that is located entirely on a processor. All logic is contained in a single chip. New cars have many embedded systems working to keep emissions low and performance high.
An "embedded system" is any computer system or computing device that performs a dedicated function or is designed for use with a specific embedded software application. Embedded systems may use a ROM-based operating system or they may use a disk-based system, like a PC. But an embedded system is not usable as a commercially viable substitute for general purpose computers or devices. This limits the use of office automation/personal computing functions (e-mail, word processing, spreadsheets, database, network browsing, scheduling, and personal finance) permitted with the particular embedded licensed product.
This refers to a system that is located entirely on a processor. All logic is contained in a single (or only a few) chip(s). They can be found in cars for the use of accurate motor-management.
A specialized computer, often hidden from the end user, used to control devices such as automobiles, home and office appliances, and hand-held units of all kinds, as well as machines as sophisticated as space vehicles. Operating systems and application functions are often combined into the same program. An embedded system implies a fixed set of functions that is programmed into a non-volatile memory (ROM, flash memory, etc.), in contrast to a general-purpose computing machine. It can be thought of as a self-contained system: for example, a computer in a car that controls the ignition system. Because systems often operate critically important applications, reliable real-time reactions are vital.
A specialized computer system which is dedicated to a specific task. Embedded systems range in size from a single processing board to systems with operating systems (ex, Linux, Windows® NT Embedded). Examples of embedded systems are medical equipment and manufacturing equipment.
A specialized computer system that is part of a larger system or machine. Typically, an embedded system is an application specific single-board computer containing the microprocessor, memory, and all interface circuitry with the programs stored on-board as well. The embedded system can also be a single integrated circuit, called an SOC or System on chip.
A combination of computer hardware and software, and perhaps additional mechanical or other parts, designed to perform a dedicated function. In some cases, embedded systems are part of a larger system or product, as is the case of an anti-lock braking system in a car. Contrast with general-purpose computer. Defined by Michael Barr, President, Netrino Consultants Network.
A phrase that refers to a device that contains computer logic on a chip inside it. Such equipment is electrical or battery powered. The chip controls one or more functions of the equipment, such as remembering how long it has been since the device last received maintenance.
A device, usually with a singular function such as controlling a piece of machinery on an assembly line, that contains a microprocessor. Inability to handle information such as four-digit dates or leap days can cause these systems that depend on them to shut down in the year 2000.
typically an IC or pc board, it is a specialized computer system that is part of a larger system or machine.
Hardware and software which forms a component of some larger system and which is expected to function without human intervention.
A combination of computer hardware and software, and perhaps additional mechanical or other parts, designed to perform a dedicated function. In some cases, embedded systems are part of a larger system or product, as in the case of an antilock braking system in a car. Contrast with general-purpose computer. EXAMPLE: Microwave ovens, cell phones, calculators, digital watches, VCRs, cruise missiles, GPS receivers, heart monitors, laser printers, radar guns, engine controllers, digital cameras, traffic lights, remote controls, bread machines, fax machines, pagers, cash registers, treadmills, gas pumps, credit/debit card readers, thermostats, pacemakers, blood gas monitors, grain analyzers, and a gazillion others.
An embedded system is a special-purpose system in which the computer is completely encapsulated by the device it controls. Unlike a general-purpose computer, such as a personal computer, an embedded system performs one or a few pre-defined tasks, usually with very specific requirements. Since the system is dedicated to specific tasks, design engineers can optimize it, reducing the size and cost of the product.
