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
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.
