      You need to check the link to the web site. There is a prelim sheet
      and the CPU runs at 192 MHz. This is an ARM9, not an ARM7 toy CPU.
      It has dual 8 kB caches as well as dual 8 kB on chip memories. So you
      can run your core code at full speed as well as having cache for the
      external memories.

      But I don't think the programmable logic is FPGA. It sounds like it
      is factory programmable only. I have sent them an email asking for
      more info, but so far I have not received a reply.

      Even if it is factory programmable only, if they make it practical to
      do small quantities, I can see it being widely used in products.
