Embedding Linux

Linux is becoming widely accepted in the embedded systems arena. This paper will give a brief overview of the applications for which it is currently being used and new applications for which development is in progress, and will discuss the requirements and problems which are unique to such embedded applications.

Some discussion will also be given to situations in which Linux is not the most appropriate tool for the task at hand, and in which a smaller, more application-specific operating system such as eCos may be more useful.
