Mindspeed and Marvell are among the minority supporting ARM in comms processors. LSI already worked on A15. More powerful than Mindspeed.

oh i hate my space bar lets try that URL again and add 2 more for generic WRT info http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/index the main site. http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Hardware_DIY their wiki links to their DIY hacking of popular routers and NAS etc. http://www.storm-it.com/blog/28/DD-WRT-(3rd-party-router-firmware) for an WRT overview with the mention of people actually running personal web servers on their DD-WRT enabled kit, Nice, so that additional ram comes in handy right off the bat :)

if they really want traction in the mass home and entry-level business systems then id mandate an empty generic SO-DIMM slot on all PCB's they produce so as to allow these home and entry-level business systems customers to populate them and provide more system ram than the included base systems. by "Mindspeed aims to package a full software stack based on open source code for each target application. It currently does not have a complete code base for small business routers." i assume you mean the ever popular DD-WRT (3rd party router firmware)http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/index the reason being if its not that then its no good from the HOME/SOHO POV LOL. and they will expect and make use of any additional and easy RAM you can easily fit so making these new ARM SOC PCB/devices ever more popular and advocated in that MASS market place i just hope Mindspeed are willing to work with the wrt and related devs to provide patches upstream etc as a very important service.

I wonder what the price will be? It looks like a great reduction in power but at what cost? I would expect more of the dual type of A9 processor based solutions to start coming out.
