"STMicroelectronics (STM) is sampling an inexpensive ARM-based SoC (system-on-chip) with a 200K-gate configurable logic block. The SPEAr Head (structured processor enhanced architecture) integrates USB 2.0 host/device and 10/100 Ethernet interfaces, and targets embedded control applications such as digital engines for printers and scanners. It runs Linux, among several other embedded OSes.

"The SPEAr Head is based on an ARM926EJ-S core clocked at 266MHz. The core includes 32KB of instruction and 16KB of data cache, along with 8KB each of data and instruction TCM (tightly coupled memory)..."
