ARM Processor find of the day. A Marvell in engineering.

Marvell, well known for its networking chips, also makes many storage controller solutions and other SoC’s. Marvell currently has two ARM cored lines, the Xscale series (purchased from Intel a year ago) and the Feroceon, a customized ARM core developed by Marvell (they actually have a complete ARM architecture liscense which gives them the ability to design ARM cores beyond the premade IP blocks)

This 88F5182 is a 400MHz processor that I found in a Lacie NAS drive.  It has 64K of L1 cache and supports 200MHz DDR2 RAM (64MB of which was included in this Lacie drive)

Really a pretty impressive device for a networked storage device.
