Atmel and ST have ARM chips which have an SD port (4bits) - and i
suspect there might be others...
Another option are the PIC24 chips. They have a 8/16 bit master slave
port which could be used for the SCSI interface... I think a device
could be made pretty small with a 28 pin MCU and a microSD socket...
Most likely a bit faster than an AVR solution... And small..

I've clicked for peace! Have you?
