Hardware 1

Purpose To look at the hardware of today and tomorrow and to create a set of hardware specifications that allow for heterogenous hardware possibilities to sit below a homogenous Hardware Abstraction Layer(HAL)/Hardware Services Manager (HSM). This allows an operating system to sit on top of a standard HAL/HSM without caring about the hardware implementation beneath it. Hardware designers will thus be free to use any set of components, standard or custom buses and interconnects that they chose based upon their preferences.
