The GT64110/GT64120 from Galileo Technology Inc. (acquired by Marvel) are designed to connect a high speed processor to peripheral devices. It connects the CPU to an asynchronous local device bus which is used to interface with the boot EPROM, Serial I/O, and Flash memory. It also has a built-in DRAM controller for interfacing the processor to the onboard SDRAM main memory with minimal glue logic. In addition, the chip provides a CPU bus to PCI bus bridge. This chip is also used in the Cobalt, Galileo avaluation boards and in CISCO 7200 routers.
