CPU Choice question

we have a custom hardware platform based upon the SC520 processor, basically
an expanded x486. Over the next year or so we want to begin the design of a
new platform for our next generation of products. If we could find a faster
CPU with an SSI interface and a couple of 16/32 bit timers available that
would be ideal. Anyone got some suggestions please?

I have used for last couple years ARM based processor such as StrongARM,
Xscale(PXA25X and PXA27X), and SC2410 and SC2440.
I would recommend ARM based processor such as Xscale Intel, SC24XX from
You may have more than 600 MHz with Intel Xscale and 500MHz from Samsung.
Per SSI interface, Xscale has 3 SSI port and SC2410 has 2 SSI port.
You can find more detail information from the manual.
