Embedded Computers
  • Computer hardware and software that are an integral part of a product, where the principal function of the product is not the automatic acquisition, storage, manipulation, management, movement, control, display, switching, interchange, transmission, or reception of data or information. An embedded computer would require major modification to be used for general purpose computing and is managed as a component of the system in which it is embedded. (Federal Information Resources Management Regulation [FIRMR]).
