A power supply is a device that converts power from the source into the right format and voltage for the connected device or system. In addition to increasing or decreasing the voltage and converting the format from alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC), it can also regulate the power to minimize fluctuations to flow.
Embedded computers consist of hardware and software that work together to perform a specific task within a system. The exact tasks they perform vary depending on the system in which they are installed.
Some examples of typical applications include network bridges and routers, cellphones, imaging and monitoring instruments.
