Developed in 1960, the Apollo Guidance Computer was the first contemporary real-time embedded computing system. Designed for the Lunar and Apollo Command Module missions, Intel produced the first commercial microprocessor unit in 1971.

In 1978, the National Engineering Manufacturers Association established a standard improving the embedded system design for programmable microcontrollers. By 1980, system components were amalgamated with input, memory and output onto the same chip as the processor. These systems are now incorporated into consumers' everyday lives, from mobile phones to traffic lights.

Further development into Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality has increased demand for embedded software jobs. A Qyresearch 2018 report states the embedded systems industry's estimated value was $68.9 billion, with an expected increase to $105.7 billion by 2025.
