What is the difference between embedded systems and wireless embedded systems? Why should we choose embedded systems?
An embedded system is a combination of a microchip and software to perform a specific task, embedded into a manufactured product. In the past, if a device needed to communicate to other devices or to a network, a wired connection was the only feasible approach. As an example, a modern thermostat usually contains a dedicated microcontroller to manage the display and user interactions, and communicates with your furnace via a wired link.
