Embedded solutions are everywhere, but often go unnoticed. These single board computers can be found in cell phones, digital cameras, calculators, microwave ovens, and many other devices/ gadgets. Basically, almost any device running on electric power either already has an embedded solution or will soon have one embedded in it.
An embedded solution is a system that has software embedded into hardware, which makes a system dedicated for a process as part of a larger system. It processes a fixed set of pre-programmed instructions to control equipment. For example, consider how an ATM or printer works. The embedded solutions inside may contain a simple motherboard CPU combo to perform a small range of tasks, but these machines are part of a larger system with a wider range of tasks.
A general definition of embedded solutions is that they are devices used to control, monitor, or assist the operation of equipment, machinery, or plant. “Embedded” means that these systems are an integral part of a larger system. In many cases, these solutions may be so embedded that most users won’t recognize that an embedded solution exists.
How does one recognize an embedded solution when compared to a complete solution, like a computer desktop? The following are characteristics to look for:
With the growth in availability of embedded solution parts on the Internet, hobbyists and serious builders have taken to constructing their own embedded systems, ranging from mechanized bird feeders to a fishbowl on wheels that fish can actually drive. Popular embedded solution platforms include Intel Edison, NVIDIA Jetson, SolidRun HummingBoard, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi.
