I guess he means things like the DSPs found in OMAP SoCs, SGI's VICE, possibly 
Cell's SPEs, maybe even things like the 8051 integrated into things like the 
Silicon Motion SM502. May or may not have their own MMUs or analogues ( VICE 
has some private RAM and host-controlled DMA machinery for example ), usually 
there's a mechanism to send interrupts between host and peripheral 

have fun
