Get the details here: http://www.parallax.com/microc...

This matters because you can now build a device that is open hardware, open code all the way down to the CPU level! Either use a product CPU, and have access to it's source code to understand what and how it does things, or load that CPU onto a suitable FPGA and modify it or combine it with your design.
