The architecture is build around two micro processors: a MIPS 24k and an AVR Atmega. The MIPS processor is intended to control networking, while the Atmega is intended to control analog and digital I/O in real-time. The two architectures can communicate with each other using either I2C, SPI or Serial communication.
