Speaking of Flash memory, you might be interested in some research we
did a couple of years ago that looks at Flash memory as a drop-in
replacement for RAM.  Interesting issues arise with copying garbage
collection, since Flash is write-once/erase-block, rather than write-
anywhere.  See http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~mwh/papers/flash.ps.

Yes,
We use caml in our embedded product. Our Application work (in bytecode
mode)
on uClinux (http://www.uclinux.org) with the Coldfire processor.
We have 2 Mbyte of Flash and 8Mbyte of Ram.

Due to the lack of MMU, the stack size have to be fixed, that's a real
problem
with caml.

You can see our product at
