Embedded Project Ideas

Embedded system:

An embedded system is designed to perform one function with real-time applications. Embedded systems are found in simple devices like calculators, microwave & television remote controls and also in more complicated devices such as a home security and neighborhood traffic control systems. Many Talented people can take the advantages of simple embedded systems and turn them into a more integrated system for controlling other devices.

So, Now-a-days many engineering students are showing lot of interest to improve their practical knowledge in embedded systems in early stage by doing the embedded systems projects in their final year. Generally we use 8051 Microcontroller or PIC Microcontroller based projects as they serve as good reference for final year electronics engineering projects.

8051 Microcontroller Projects:

A micro controller is an integrated circuit or a chip with a processor and other support devices like program memory, data memory, I/O ports, serial communication interface etc integrated together. 8051 is the most popular and widely use microcontroller. So, many engineering students show lot of interest in doing the 8051 Microcontroller projects.
