ABSTRACT
<p>When you design an embedded system, you aren?t worried about whether AMD beats Intel at 2 gigahertz. Embedded processors are fundamentally different from desktop processors-costs are too tight for fancy chipsets and expensive packaging. Instead of "faster is better," the purchasing philosophy for embedded processors is "fast enough is good enough." Instead of "64 bits or bust," it?s "8 or 16 bits will do just fine."</p>
