        The embedded development world has a very large amount of available hardware that can be interfaced with but, unfortunately, relatively few of these devices have a managed code interface. No matter how robust or mature the .NET Compact Framework gets, there will always be hardware that a solution needs to use that cannot be directly used from managed code.
        To handle this need for flexibility, a generic framework can be used to reduce code redundancy, improve application quality and increase code reusability.
