An embedded system consist of several components.

  • Core System: SoC (cpu , architecture specific)
  • Peripherals connected via: PCI, PCIe, I2C, SPI, GPIO, USB, Vendor specific
  • Hardware developers often use interfaces that can directly write to chip registers or flash: JTAG, debug ports/pins
  • Wireless

Embedded systems are designed and often have drawbacks for their advantages. Low power consumption and low performance (benchmark: performance/watt comparisons) In contrast to the early age of computers many vendors do not publish data sheets or programming handbooks for their SoC, wireless chips, boards, etc…
