DEC StrongARM SA-110S Back Side
A 32-bit RISC microprocessor featuring superior power efficiency, low cost, and high performance. The SA-110 is an implementation of Advanced RISC Machines Ltd. (ARM) Version 4 architecture. It is intended for embedded applications like handheld computers (PDAs), high-bandwidth network switching, storage systems and remote access devices. It was used as a CPU in Apple's Newton MessagePad 2000 series (162 MHz version) and Psion organizers and controlled several RAID controllers by Adaptec or Mylex. For more information please refer to the DEC technical reference (pdf).

The Alpha 21164PC is much like the Alpha 21164, with no L2 cache on board, and an additional 8K of instruction cache to keep costs down, and performance adequate. It was created to be a volume processor for workstations, but never really sold in any great numbers due to the weak L1 cache.
