First of all, what is embedded.
The definition of embedded technology is very extensive. For example, the smallest 8-bit single-chip microcomputer system belongs to embedded system, which leads to many small household appliances, such as hair dryer, refrigerator, induction cooker, etc.
On the other hand, the powerful 32-bit single-chip microcomputer is also simple embedded. For example, the simple small appliances with touch screen are generally 32-bit single-chip microcomputer, and some UAVs and sweeping robots also have the figure of 32-bit single-chip microcomputer.
More advanced embedded point, such as RTOS real-time operating system, Linux operating system, these things can be counted as a small computer, such as the car’s central control panel, the factory’s advanced machines are applied to these systems.
From this we can see that embedded is everywhere, and we are surrounded by a variety of embedded devices.
In recent years, due to the rapid development of mobile devices and the Internet of things, things in our home have also been upgraded more rapidly, such as intelligent curtains, intelligent washing machines, fingerprint door locks, which are embedded in the applications, and thus give birth to more job opportunities and jobs.
Traditional embedded development may be less than 10 people, but now, to develop an advanced embedded system requires at least 200 people, such as Dajiang UAV and sweeping robot.
The reason why the embedded system has a bright future is that the current electronic products are undergoing a big reshuffle. The traditional electronic products have no way to live. They are all developing towards the direction of interconnection and intelligence. This requires many times more human resources than before, so the embedded system has a bright future!
