Warren, another device that has a mixture of programmable logic and CPUs is the Cypres PSoC series.  In fact, one can order some of their parts with 8-bit CPUs, while most of them use 32-bit ARM processors.  There are a number of different types of programmable logic blocks, and the whole system is configurable.

Good point! I will talk about the PSoC series in a future blog. It does use a different and interesting approach which is worth discussing.

Thanx!
