ARM (Page 3)

Powerful Devices in small sizes are possible with ARM based devices. Handhelds, Netbooks, Robots and Small Machinery can integrate an ARM based SBC with Touchscreen at moderate cost and low energy burden.

If you want to scale higher in some dedicated embedded solution for a specific need, you also need the full power of a PC, Then an ARM based system with Linux OS, can be Tailored to a perfect fit.
