With the technological developments in the advent of microprocessors, the embedded systems have become an everyday reality that allowed single chip processors to control and monitor the industrial process independently. The embedded systems are more flexible, economical, and easier to design and upgrade. This paper describes general aspects of embedded systems, analyzes their status and future market trends. This also explains the present design trends with difference between embedded processor and desktop processor. Finally, the application of embedded processor in the industrial process control has been demonstrated in the paper.

Abstract


With the technological developments in the advent of microprocessors, the embedded systems have become an everyday reality that allowed single chip processors to control and monitor the industrial process independently. The embedded systems are more flexible, economical, and easier to design and upgrade. This paper describes general aspects of embedded systems, analyzes their status and future market trends. This also explains the present design trends with difference between embedded processor and desktop processor. Finally, the application of embedded processor in the industrial process control has been demonstrated in the paper.
