Intrinsyc of Canada is selling small and inexpensive
cubics which house PXA (Xscale derivative and StrongARM descendant
in turn) and PPC405.   I'm not aware if NetBSD is already ported for them,
but it should be easy to accomplish.

And, yes, ARM is a good 'academic' subject to tell.  Its history and evolution
is worth lecturing. "learn the processors"
