Many of those blocks will often sit idle—for example,the processing logic may sit idle when user interface functions are performed. Implementing several functions on a single processor often makes much better use of the available hardware budget. Given the small or nonexistent gains that can be had by avoiding the use of microprocessors, the fact that microprocessors provide substantial advantages makes them the best choice in a wide variety of systems. The programmability of microprocessors can be a substantial benefit during the design process.

Careful design is required to slow down the noncritical parts of the machine for power consumption while still meeting necessary performance goals. How do we design for upgradability? The hardware platform may be used over several product generations, or for several different versions of a product in the same generation, with few or no changes. However, we want to be able to add features by changing software. How can we design a machine that will provide the required performance for software that we haven’t yet written?

When generalized into classes, we define an association between the message set class and the message class. The association is drawn as a line between the two labeled with the name of the association, namely, contains. The ball and the number at the message class end indicate that the message set may include zero or more message objects. Sometimes we may want to attach data to the links themselves; we can specify this in the association by attaching a class-like box to the association’s edge, which holds the association’s data.
