Embedded Systems - Inside a TV.Posted: 4th October 2019
Today, Year 10 Computer Science pupils had the opportunity to investigate embedded systems within a smart television by taking apart an old Panasonic Television. By completing this hands-on practical activity, pupils were able to answer the following questions...
In what ways is the Panasonic television an “embedded system”?
Which components of the television would we find in an “average” computer?
How do the different components link together to work like a computer?
Where are the examples of RAM and ROM in this system?
Pupils found this experience greatly fascinating and had a great time working together to take apart and identify different parts of the smart television.
