What is an embedded system? Embedded systems are either fixed or programmable combinations of hardware and software designed to perform a specific, pre-defined task within a larger mechanical or electrical system. Unlike general computing systems, embedded systems often require low power consumption, must function within rugged operating ranges, are small in size and must achieve a lower cost per unit.  These performance constraints often result in limited processing resources and create additional design and programming challenges for embedded systems engineers.  Barr Group can help.
