Embedded Systems And Embedded Boards
An object consisting of a special-purpose computing system is known as an embedded device. The computing system is enclosed within the mechanical or electrical system of the device and may or may not connect to the internet. Embedded devices have a lot of industrial applications. They are highly used in the commercial, healthcare, automotive and industrial sectors.
The embedded device consists of an embedded system which runs on an operating system that runs a single application. The application enables the device to do its intended job efficiently. The embedded device might or might not connect to the internet, which is known as internet of things. On the other hand, the embedded board Thailand are readymade computer boards suitable for low volume embedded and ruggedized systems.
Some of the examples of devices containing embedded systems are, washing machines, dishwashers, ATMs, vending machines, PoS terminals, routers and mobile phones. The embedded devices which can connect to the internet are classified as smart or intelligent devices and the ones that cannot be connected to the internet are classified as dumb devices.
Embedded systems are also used in complex industrial machinery for automation purposes. These devices are mostly headless and do not contain a User Interface. These devices are connected to an external computer using an In circuit emulator (ICE). The ICE helps in debugging of the devices and in software updating.
The power requirements of the embedded system depends on the type of devices they are used in. while the smaller devices used in limited spaces like the vending machines, ATMs and Kiosks require low power, the complex industrial devices require higher power.
Embedded computer boards are intended for small, low volume embedded systems. These embedded board Thailand are small when compared the standard PC but are very large in comparison to the eight and sixteen bit embedded systems. These computer boards use operating systems such as DOS, Linux and Net BSD.
The embedded board Thailand is a perfect option for devices which does not require small size and high power efficiency. The components used in these boards are compatible with the components of general use personal computers, this enables the production of low cost components that can be used with the same software development tools.
Systems using these types of embedded boards Thailand are also regarded as embedded systems as they can be integrated with large mechanical and electrical devices and fulfil the intended role. Devices with code specific applications like the gaming arcade machines and ATMs can use these types of boards.
