    old article, here is an extract :

    The architecture in question is Hitachi's SuperH, whose instruction set was a precursor to one used in many ARM Thumb CPUs. But the patents on the most important SuperH designs have all expired—and more will be expiring in the months and years to come—which makes SuperH a candidate for revival. Dionne, Landley, and Kawasaki's session [PDF] outlined the status of their SuperH-based "J2" core design, which can be synthesized in low-cost FGPAs or manufactured in bulk.
