Cisco routers have used them in the past, and I have an internet
appliance called a WebPal (StrongARM processor, ISA slot, TV out,
IR keyboard, yadda, yadda) with a 1Mb FLASH DIMM with a blank spot.
Someone has ported Linux to it, but you need the 2Mb DIMM and an
external programmer to get a kernel into it.
