ASIC preferable to implementation on a general-purpose machine. Even on the newly emerging highly parallel machines, the software effort involved might well be spent in producing a special-purpose processor. It is also not clear in many systems problems that are solved with an embedded microprocessor whether one might be replacing a hardware effort with an equivalent software effort and an attendant loss in performance. l
