I'm looking at using the 5282 but need an estimate of how much processing power I'll need. I'm new to embedded programming, so any help with getting some estimates in the ballpark would be appreciated. Here's an overview of what I want to run:

* OS + network stack
* Application state machine (~5-10 states)
* Message routing (to trigger state transitions and also for application messages in each state)
* Diagnostics and configuration for 2 cameras
* Control of a separate image processor. video will be piped over the ethernet.

Again, I'm just looking to get into the ballpark. e.g., whether this would take about 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 or the whole processing capability of the 5282.
