<p>The ways in which the environment of an embedded controller differs from that of a general-purpose CPU are described. A particular embedded controller application, the network interface is examined. The microprocessor used is the 32-bit VL86C010 Acorn RISC (reduced-instruction-set computer). The features of the network architecture, as they affect the choice of processor, are discussed. The impact of system latency on the choice of hardware is examined.</p>
