Embedded products play a central role in commercial and industrial applications in a large number of industries. From planes with in-flight entertainment systems to machinery in production plants, embedded products are everywhere. However, many people don’t understand what exactly embedded products are or how they are used. Here are the answers to some common questions about embedded products.

 

What exactly is an embedded product?

Embedded products refer to embedded systems. These systems are incorporated into larger operating systems. They perform specific tasks within the larger system. For example, the part of a washing machine that is responsible for opening and closing the valves is an embedded system. Airbags in cars or speed controls in planes are also embedded systems. These systems range from simple to extremely complex, but they all play essential roles within the larger system.

 

Although some embedded products are microprocessors, most are microcontrollers. Microprocessors contain a CPU, but do not contain any kind of memory. In systems that use microprocessor embedded products, the memory has to be added in another format. Microcontrollers, on the other hand, contain both a CPU and memory.

 

Are embedded products reliable?

Yes—embedded products have to be reliable, since they typically perform mission-critical functions. Without reliable embedded products, the larger systems would experience serious failures. In the case of applications used in healthcare, aerospace, and transportation, these failures could be dangerous.

 

Embedded systems also have to be reliable because they generally cannot be accessed, so they cannot be repaired. Typically, if there is a problem with an embedded system, it will need to be replaced completely, or the entire device in which it resides will need to be replaced.

 

What kind of embedded products are available?

There is a nearly endless list of embedded products, but for industrial applications, embedded storage systems are crucial. These include SATA SSDs, mSATAs, and SD cards. These embedded products can be designed with SLC flash storage, the most reliable form of flash available.
