    "An embedded system is a special-purpose computer system, which is completely encapsulated by the device it controls. An embedded system has specific requirements and performs pre-defined tasks, unlike a general-purpose personal computer."

      The are usually complete systems on a single chip. Try "embedded processor" in Google.

      A good example is the BASIC Stamp by www.Parallax.com.

        I bet you did not know that google does defintions too? Yep. Keywork "define:" and if you have more than one word, then use of "" can contain them together in the definition search.

        Mr. Google, please [ define:"embedded system" ] (Without the "[]" in the google query of course.)

          Firefox also does this. dict xxxx gives you the definition from dictionary.com.

            We should drag Johnny into the forums, he would have a field day here. Maybe someone can make a google search 101 sticky in the "Got Questions" channel
