What is embedded software design?
An embedded system is a special-purpose computer system that performs one or more dedicated functions. This part of the system is usually embedded into a complete device with the purpose of controlling the device in one or more ways. The "control" often comes from software instructionsembedded software design generally involves planning and writing that instruction set.
