I did Z8s and Z80a's back in the 80s... I thought I was hot stuff... my first SBC had an Intel 8086 sixteen-bitter but what I sold in the computer stores were Osborne and Kaypro CP/M Z80's. >> responded to a recruiter query about a Qualcomm Snapdragon, another >> similar ARM chip. > > I guess those devices are from the Unix league, very interesting, but > somehow outside the main scope of my projects. > Actually, Qualcomm's focus is phones and cameras. ARM A is PC-type chip with MMU, M-type and F-type are micro-controllers.
