SHeesh: So the model of the dev board is not as important - I have a project with chip on glass display, differnt hardware to talk to our propritary hardware hardware. THe interface I see is the Kiel debug panel.
The front panel is our shipping hardware and we look at the CPU as an interchangable part. (Don't tell the hardware venders - they get testy about this)
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
