"Bluewater's latest Snapper is aimed at security imaging and camera systems, dedicated smart instruments, deeply embedded headless systems, and mobile/industrial control systems. As the name implies, the Snapper 9260 incorporates the unofficial king of the tiny embedded SBC market these days, Atmel's ARM9-based AT91SAM9260. Bluewater clocks the microcontroller to 180MHz (200 MIPS), and backs it up with 64MB SDRAM and 1GB of NAND flash storage.

"The Snapper 9260 includes a CompactFlash interface, plus dual USB Host ports and one USB Device port. Other I/O includes SPI, I2C, and SDIO. The module's ability to selectively turn peripherals on and off is said to enable increased power savings, as well as allowing shared peripherals to be used."
