By providing real-time system limitations, it firmly controls the system's physical operation. Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA), gate arrays, GPU technology, application-specific integrated circuits (ASIC), and microcontrollers or digital signal processors (DSP) are used to control embedded devices. These processing systems also include components for dealing with electrical and/or mechanical interfaces.

Embedded systems' primary characteristic is that they are task-specific. Within a bigger system, they finish a single duty. For instance, a cell phone is not an embedded system because it combines several embedded systems to execute a variety of general-purpose functions. Hardware for embedded systems is often based on microprocessors or microcontrollers.

In comparison to the typical enterprise desktop computer, an industrial microcontroller is less sophisticated and typically relies on a less complex, memory-intensive programming environment. The system is highly appropriate for a wide range of applications, including those involving electrical gadgets, home appliances, wearable technology, medical monitoring equipment, and others.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Due to a major impact on key companies in the supply chain, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a considerable negative influence on the growth of the worldwide embedded systems market.
