What is Embedded System?

Embedded systems are a combination of hardware and software where software is usually known as firmware that is embedded into the hardware.

Applications of Embedded System

  • Automobiles – Engine control, ABS, EBD, Infotainment System etc (Almost 80% of automobile controls are shifted from manual to Automatic)
  • Telecommunications – Wireless communication, Mobile computing.
  • Smartcards – ATM, Security system.
  • Navigation & Defense – Satellites, Missiles
  • Networking – Printers, Monitors, Network Cards
    Digital Consumer Electronics – TV, Music System, Set-top Boxes, Digital Camera.

Skills required to be an Embedded Engineer

  • Hardware – microcontrollers, 8 bit, 16 bit, 32 bit, clocking,  communication protocols
  • Software –  C programming language (Function, Pointers, Arrays, Structures, Bit-wise operations), Linux Programming, Embedded Linux and porting
  • Design – Anyone PCB layout design software

VLSI?

VLSI stands for Very Large Scale Integration. It is the process of creating an integrated circuit (IC) by combining thousands of transistors into a single chip.

Development of VLSI

  • SSI – Small Scale Integration (1-10 Transistors & 1-12 Logic Gates)
  • MSI – Medium Scale Integration (10-500 Transistors & 13-19 Logic Gates)
  • LSI – Large-scale Integration (500-20,000 Transistors & 100-9,999 Logic Gates)
  • VLSI – Very Large scale Integration (20,000-100,000 Transistors & 10,000-99,999 Logic Gates)
  • UVLSI – Small Scale Integration (1,000,000 and more & more than 100,000 Logic Gates)

Skills required to be a VLSI Engineer

  • Strong Fundamentals of Analog and Digital Electronics
  • Programming languages like C or C++.
  • Scripting languages like PERL, shell, Python, Tcl
  • quora: VLSI Basics

Top VLSI Companies in India

    • Intel, Texas Instruments, Nvidia, Broadcom, MediaTek, WaferSpace, Mindtree, Bharat Electronics Ltd, ISRO, HAL etc…

PLC?

The PLC is a dedicated controller designed for industrial usage. It contains the various types of I/Os that are very suitably matching with the industrial instrumentation and plant control interfaces. 

Advantages of Choosing PLC programmer as career

  • Reasonable salary.
  • Easy to work with PLCs.
  • Easy to learn PLC programming (Ladder diagrams).

Applications of PLCs

  • PLCs have a wide range of industrial applications, some of them are mentioned below:
    • Process Industry. (Food, Pharma, Leather etc)
    • Automotive Industry.
    • Energy Monitoring and Load shedding.
    • Oil & Gas Industry.
    • Petro – Chemical Industry.
    • Water Treatment Plant Etc.

What is Industrial Automation?

Industrial automation can be defined as the use of technologies and automatic control devices that result in automatic operation and control of industrial processes without significant human intervention and achieving superior performance than manual control. These automation devices include PLCs, PCs, PACs, etc.

Types of Industrial Automation Systems

  • Fixed or Hard Automation – Repeated task
  • Programmable Automation – Modification of programme based on task
  • Flexible or Soft Automation – To produce multiple products with different ranges

Hierarchy of an Industrial Automation System

  • Field Level – uses sensors and actuators
  • Control Level – uses Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs)
  • Supervising and Production Control Level – supervising various parameters, setting production targets, historical archiving, setting machine start and shutdown, etc.  Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA)
  • Information or Enterprise Level – the top level of the industrial automation which manages the whole automation system.

Industries adopted automation

  • Automobile
  • Food processing
  • Textile
  • Leather
  • Chemical
  • Oil & Gas
  • Power plant
  • Steel industry
