Embedded OS can be installed in a hard drive, on-board flash memory, compact flash card, SD card, Disk-On-Chip or Disk-On-Module - depending on the configuration of your embedded system.What embedded system are you using? What embedded OS do you have?
embedded software just simply means that it's just that... you can install only what you only need. parang windows xp embedded. it is the same windows xp but you'll be able to select ONLY what you'll need to run your software. it simply means that the operating system could also run in REAL TIME. windows xp/CE could do that. i wiki mo yung windows xp embedded makakatulong yan sa usb to printer mo. ganito yung set up ko sa isang kiosk ko. sa event.intel ATOM 1.6 ghz cost is 4400 petot may 1gb ram nacompact flash reader (high speed) 1,200 petotinstalled with windows xp embedded.
it can be done using Microcontrollers with large memories kung kailangan na mas mura, kailangan lang ng FAT reader at gagawa ng program pambasa ng .doc.mas madali lang sa may Embedded OS lalo na kung sanay sa OS na 'yun.
I used nlite to strip down winxp so that puede syang mag run kahit sa old computers runing at 233 MHz
back long time ago. kahit naka win98 ako eh sanay pa din ako sa command line. kaya nung nag nageedit and print ako nang pictures naka batch and commandline driven. much faster kasi that way. pseudo flowchart0. wait for usb functions..1. when usb is inserted go SEARCH *.doc2. show all files in a list. 3. select file from list. 4. select printer/paper size. 5. print. goto 0
