We see from your search that you're looking for information on the term "DMA controller", and we have a large number of manufacturers' news releases and technical articles here on Electronicstalk which will be of interest. Let me be your guide.
Start with the news release ARM9-based MCUs come with up to 512Kbyte of Flash from Atmel Corporation, which we summarised at the time by saying "Combination of performance and functionality on a single chip makes microcontrollers ideal for space-constrained applications where high performance is required". A few weeks before, we featured the news release ARM tools are optimised for Atmel MCU from Crossware Products: "Development suite allows developers to rapidly exploit the advanced features of the Atmel AT91SAM9263".
In December 2007, we covered the news from PLDA concerning its EZ DMA IP core - take a look at Core puts PCI Express on avionics video card which says: "DMA controller core is designed for Xilinx Virtex-5 LXT and SXT FPGAs with their on-chip endpoint blocks for PCI Express".
Take a look also at the news release from Renesas Technology Europe, Evaluation board eases display development, as well as Complete software radio comes on PMC/XMC module from Pentek, and Mezzanine card provides faster denser storage from Aitech Defense Systems.
