Understanding Industrial Embedded Systems

Car Infotainment Application

 

Industrial embedded systems are used in a variety of critical devices and applications. They can be used for booting, machine control, and memory. Because these embedded systems are industrial grade, they are designed to tolerate the extreme operating conditions of industrial environments. You can find them in everything from machines in manufacturing settings to airplanes and medical devices. The following information will help you gain a better understanding of embedded systems.

 

What exactly is an industrial embedded system?

Embedded systems feature a combination of hardware and software. They are installed inside a larger system for a specific use. Embedded systems are used for memory, as boot drives, and for a wide range of other functions. They may have a graphical user interface or no user interface at all. Anyone who has used a mobile device or laptop has used a device with an embedded system.

 

What makes industrial embedded systems different than standard embedded systems is that they can operate in conditions that exceed normal usage. This may mean conditions in which there are extreme temperatures or significant temperature fluctuations, or in which shock and vibration levels are high.

 

How are industrial embedded systems used for memory?

Industrial embedded systems that are used for memory and storage are designed with flash technology. Flash memory uses a system of voltages to save data on cells within an embedded memory card. Industrial grade systems feature SLC flash memory, in which one bit of data is stored per cell. This grade of flash is considered to be the most reliable, so it is used when data storage is critical, such as within medical devices.

 

SLC flash also offers the fastest operating speeds and the longest lifespan of all flash memory products. Flash memory systems are more reliable than hard disk drive memory because they don’t have any moving parts, making them a perfect fit for industrial users.

 

Where are industrial embedded systems used?

Industrial embedded systems have widespread usability and are found in many different industries. You can expect to find them in applications in the healthcare, transportation, automation, gaming, and energy industries. They are also used in military devices. Many consumer devices, like laptops and smartphones, also feature embedded systems.
