what is an embedded system
What is an Embedded System?
  • Electronic devices that incorporate a microprocessor or microcontroller within their implementation.
  • Microprocessor of embedded system is hidden from user.
  • No Mouse, Kbd, monitor, etc.
embedded market
Embedded Market
  • Embedded:desktop = 100:1
  • Average #embedded processors in the resident home estimated about 50
embedded system8
Embedded System
  • CPU and Software
  • Memory Storage: ROM, RAM, PROM, EPROM
  • Input: knobs, buttons, probes, sensors, A/D communications signals, panels
  • Output: LCD display, microwave radiation, A/D communication signals
  • Outputs = functions (inputs, elapsed time, …)
common design criterion
Common Design Criterion
  • Production cost constraints
  • Processing power(limited)
  • Memory constraints(limited)
  • Development cost(low)
  • Number of units
  • Expected life time( may not be long)
  • Reliability
c for embedded software
C for embedded software
  • The most popular language for embedded systems ( over 80%)
  • A high level language
  • Compact, efficient code for almost all processors
  • Both high-level and low-level features
  • Direct hardware control, without losing the benefits of a high-level language
  • Appropriate for 8-bit to 64-bit processors
  • For systems with bytes, KB, MB of memory
typical hardware
Typical Hardware
  • Microprocessor: execute code
  • Memory: ROM, RAM, PROM, EPROM, Flash
  • Embedded systems do not have the following

- a keyboard

- a screen

- a disk drive

- CD, speakers, microphones, diskettes, modems

  • Embedded systems have: serial port, network interface, sensors, AD/DA
design goal of embedded system
Design Goal of Embedded System
  • Mission critical and life-threatening
  • 24/7/365 and can’t reboot at all
  • No human intervention
  • Multitasking and scheduling
  • Optimized I/O by Assembly Language
  • Limits, Inaccuracies of Fixed Precision
  • Consumer market: Minimize Manufacturing Cost
  • Fast time to market required
  • No chance for future modification
design goal of embedded system15
Design Goal of Embedded System
  • Handle a lot of volume of data in a short period of time
  • React to external events quickly
  • Setting up equipment to test embedded software
  • Without a screen or keyboard, finding out what the software is doing wrong
  • Must be able to handle any situation without human intervention
  • Memory is limited on embedded systems, and you must make the software and the data fit into whatever memory allows
design goal of embedded system16
Design Goal of Embedded System
  • You will need special tools to get your software into embedded systems (burner)
  • Portable systems must run on battery power, and the software in these systems must conserve power
  • Embedded systems have a microprocessor and a memory. Some have a serial port or a network connection. They usually do not have keyboards, screens, or disk drives.
