delabs Ideas and Notes-
When you see things like Smartphones and Tablets you know that embedded developers are more empowered today. This is due to the fact that component technologies have advanced rapidly, more zap for a given footprint.
More Memory, Less Power Consumption, Excellent Computing Power. Interactive Display (Touch Screen) have just made amazing things possible within a limited Gadget Real Estate.
When uC – uP pack more juice for a given battery life and configurable OS like Linux are used. The OS will not be a burden on the CPU.
Regulated Resource usage + Good CPU power = Fast Gadget Apps
