An embedded system can be defined as a special-purpose computing system (meant for information processing), which is closely integrated into the environment. An embedded system is generally dedicated to a particular application domain. Therefore, the embedding into a technical environment and the constraints that are a consequence of their application domain mostly result in implementations that are both heterogeneous and distributed. In such cases, the systems comprise hardware components that communicate by means of an interconnection network.
