Wikipedia defi nes "embedded system" as a computer system designed to do one or a few dedicated and/or specifi c functions often with real-time computing constraints.
To do a special issue on embedded was very challenging, more so for big range projects to include, as embedded electronics is part of every industry today.
The major growth factor coming from Telecom and Consumer Electronic sectors.
To achieve optimum results in domestic semiconductor market it is important to complete full cycle, from product design to end of life, within India. Recent announcement by the government to set up two plants to manufacture semiconductor wafers, with a total investment of Rs 5,000 crore are steps in right direction.
At Elektor India, we contribute our bit by promoting electronics across the country. The response on our website ( www.elektor.in ) has been equally overwhelming across cities and small towns.
So happy embedding to all !
