In most of the times we try to guess the meaning of terms from its name or title itself. For example diodes are electronic devices with two (di) electrodes connected together. Resistors are electronic components which resist flow of current.
Likewise I think, microcontrollers or embedded systems should also have meaning hidden within the term itself.
-why embedded systems are called as embedded systems? In oher words, What is required in the system to be termed as Embedded system?
