Do you need a 1GHz MPU to run Linux and Android?

"Many systems other than smartphones would like to benefit from the standardization of Android’s offerings, but over a completely different UI. One option here is the Inflexion UI GUI tool from Mentor Graphics. It also enables applications to use the Android Dalvik framework, but allows device manufacturers to quickly and easily create their own UIs and get the most out of the hardware, even if the hardware does not have an expensive GPU."

"But not all embedded systems require whizz-bang features and a blazing fast microprocessor (MPU). Vertical markets such as home and commercial applications, point-of-sale terminals...."

FreeMat - Engineering Technical Computing

FreeMat is a free environment for rapid engineering and scientific prototyping and data processing. It is similar to commercial systems such as MATLAB from Mathworks, and IDL from Research Systems, but is Open Source. FreeMat is available under the GPL license.

FreeMat - Engineering Technical Computing

FreeMat is chartered to go beyond MATLAB to include features such as a codeless interface to external C/C++/FORTRAN code, parallel/distributed algorithm development (via MPI), and advanced volume and 3D visualization capabilities.

Features Include
  • N-dimensional array manipulation (by default, N is limited to 6)
  • Built in arithmetic for manipulation of all supported data types.
  • Support for solving linear systems of equations via the divide operators.
  • 2D plotting and image display
  • Arbitrary-size FFT support
  • Pass-by-reference support (an IDL feature)
  • 3D Plotting and visualization via OpenGL
