An embedded system consist of several components.

Core System: SoC (cpu , architecture specific)

Peripherals connected via PCI,PCIe,I2C,SPI,GPIO,USB, Vendor specific

Special Hardware: cryptographic.hardware.accelerators

Hardware developers often use interfaces that can directly write to chip registers or flash: JTAG, debug ports/pins


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and low performance (Benchmark: performance/watt comparisons) In contrast to the early age of computers many vendors do not publish data sheets or programming handbooks for their SoC, Wireless Chips, Boards.
