ARM defines "Embedded Computing" as equipment that performs computing functionality, yet is provided as a "black box"; preloaded applications, limited/no capability to expand hardware functionality and in some cases no screen. Unlike PCs, system cost, power and form factor constraints often demand the use of Real-Time Operating Systems or Linux, to enable the platform to operate with less system memory.
