Topic in Depth - Embedded Systems (5)

Embedded systems are dedicated computers designed to perform a specific task. They are usually fairly simple devices that are used in areas where powerful, customizable computers are unnecessary; however, they can also be quite complex on occasion.

Embedded systems can be found almost anywhere, including automobiles and cellular phones, and their importance is reflected in their near omnipresence.

Controlling The Real World With Computers: Control And Embedded Systems
For a detailed explanation of how devices are used to control various appliances, motors, and other real world products, this site is worth a visit. Sixteen sections comprise the site, and each includes background information and an example experiment. Although certain equipment is required for the experiments, much...

Private Circuits: Securing Hardware against Probing AttacksPDF
A paper presented at the 2003 International Cryptology Conference considers the vulnerability of embedded cryptosystems to side channel attacks, which are different from normal security violations because they involve monitoring parts of the hardware system instead of the software. The authors propose the design of...

Embedding Robots Into the InternetPDF
The Center for Robotics and Embedded Systems at the University of Southern California is the source of this paper about networked robots. The paper provides some valuable insights into how robots can be used in human environments and how they can be controlled and coordinated with wireless communications. There is...

Wind River and NASA: Embedded Development for the Extreme Demands of Space Exploration Demands of Space ExplorationPDF
An article from Dedicated Systems Magazine highlights the role of embedded systems in NASA's Mars Exploration Rovers, which were launched in June and July 2003. The technologies that enabled the rovers to have powerful, reliable operation are described.

Embedded Systems
The April 2003 issue of ACM Queue, the online magazine of the Association for Computing Machinery, is dedicated to embedded systems. Seven articles are included in the issue, dealing with the design and construction process of embedded devices, programming, and the hardware/software interface.
