An embedded system is a computer system with a dedicated function within a larger mechanical or electrical system, often with real-time computing constraints. Embedded systems control many devices in common use today. Embedded system deliver cutting edge technologies and high-end products to a variety of diverse domains including consumer electronics, telecommunications, automobile, retail and banking applications. Telecommunications systems employ numerous embedded systems from telephone switches for the network to cell phones at the end-user. Consumer electronics include personal digital assistants (PDAs), mp3 players, mobile phones, videogame consoles, digital cameras, DVD players, GPS receivers, and printers.
