  Motorola DragonBall - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Motorola/Freescale Semiconductor's DragonBall is microprocessor design based on the famous 68000 core, but implemented as an all-in-one low-power solution for handheld computer use.
It was designed by Motorola based in Hong Kong.
The DragonBall's only major design win was in earlier versions of the Palm Computing platform; from Palm OS 5 on it has been superceded by ARM-based XScale processors from Intel.

Motorola followed by announcing it would use ARM technology in its next round of processors.
Motorola plans to send samples of its two new chips to device manufacturers early in the fourth quarter and expects to reach volume shipment levels in the first quarter of 2002, the company said.
Buddy Broeker, Motorola's operations manager for emerging markets, said the company decided to release two chips--one based on the older 68K core and the other based on an ARM core--because it will be "a while" before applications are available to take advantage of the ARM-based MX1's performance.

 How Palm was able to make the Palm V so small (EasyPrint)
DragonBall EZ improves on the LCD controller of the standard DragonBall by allowing supporting up to 640x512 pixels (although current Palm devices are limited to 160x160 pixels), with support for 16 gray levels.
DragonBall EZ also adds built-in emulation functions such as a dedicated memory space for the emulator debug monitor, a dedicated interrupt for emulation, and hardware support for breakpoint instruction insertion.
The DragonBall EZ is a "fully static" design, which means that when portions of the chip are not being used, their transistors (the elemental building blocks of a microprocessor) are not switching on and off, and thus not burning any power.
