I think he was refering to the small vs medium memory models that
R.R. Software can generate for the relavent CPU's - 8086, 80186, 80286.
They are of course significantly cheaper than a 32bit chip for embedded
systems and have more low power/heat options than the 32bit part of
the family (and unlike RR's 32bit version there is NO ROYALTY needed for
a DOS extender).
Regretably the implementation of 16bit Tag's has delayed the release of an
Ada95 version of that compiler to complement the 32bit versions.
