1. What is Embedded Systems? Where is it used?
Embedded systems are self-contained programs that are embedded within a piece of hardware. We can say it’s a specialized computer system that is part of a larger system or machine. Typically, an embedded system is housed on a single microprocessor board with the programs stored in ROM. Embedded systems microprocessors are programmed to automate certain tasks. Cell phones, computers, copiers, medical equipment, programmable logic controllers, and numerous other products rely on embedded systems.
2. What is the scope of Embedded Systems?
The demand is tremendous. BEL, ECIL, BPL, Videocon, and VXL are few of the Indian corporations that employ embedded systems. Motorola, Philips, Siemens, GE, Nokia, Samsung, Flextronics are present and increasing their stake in India. Of course the global demand is huge too.
Traditionally acknowledged for its software development capabilities, India is now exhibiting its competency in the chip design sector. Its booming semiconductor industry promises 3.5 million jobs by 2019.
3. Difference between Embedded Systems and VLSI design, Placement opportunities?
VLSI deals with design aspects of chip covering digital front-end/ back-end. Whereas, embedded system deals with utilizing the custom chips, designing supporting circuits, interfacing with peripherals, writing driver software, other required communication & GUI applications to design a complete end user useable product/ device.
The requirements in VLSI are relatively lower as it’s a design field and the criteria are stringent in terms of knowledge, over all academic performance of the candidate.
The ratio of number of companies visiting for campus in VLSI: Embedded is 1:10.
