Consequently, is an Arduino an embedded system?
Arduino is based on AVR microcontroller.However,by using arduino you can't access all theinternalperipherals. Scope of embedded systems is veryvast:software development, hardware development. Anembeddedengineer should know to work on bare board withoutanyapi.
Beside above, is Arduino based on C or C ++? Arduino doesn't run either C or C++.Itruns machine code compiled from either C, C++ or anyotherlanguage that has a compiler for the Arduinoinstructionset. If you don't already know C nor C++,you shouldprobably start with C, just to get used to thewhole"pointer" thing.
Also asked, what is the difference between embedded C and C?
Embedded C is generally an extension oftheC language, they are more or less similar. However,somedifferences do exist, such as: C is generallyusedfor desktop computers, while embedded C isformicrocontroller based applications. C can use theresourcesof a desktop PC like memory, OS, etc.
What is meant by embedded C?
C language is a software designed withdifferentkeywords, data types, variables, constants, etc.Embedded Cis a generic term given to a programming languagewritten inC, which is associated with a particularhardwarearchitecture. Embedded C is an extension to theClanguage with some additional header files.
