How about a EMbedded PowerPC system? On a board half the size of a
credit card you can get a MPC8xx CPU with up to 64 MB of RAM, 8 MB
Flash, serial, Ethernet, USB, SPI, I2C, PCMCIA, LCV/VGA controller,
See http://www.denx.de/embedded-ppc-en.html for some images.
Quote:> + Good development env (incl OS and compiler support)
Check. A CD-ROM with kernel sources, cross development tools, and
native filesystem (which the target can mount as root filesystem over
NFS) is available, too.
Quote:> + Easy to get started (i.e, not having to spend 10 hours to

Check. Comes with Linux pre-installed. You have the bash prompt
within 5 seconds after power-on.
Quote:> + Serial I/O. Ethernet is desirable but not required
Check. Up to 6 serial ports; 10 or 10/100 Ethernet (capabilities
depending on CPU model).
Quote:> + VGA out desirable but not required?
Check. LCD/VGA controler avalilable on MPC823 / MPC823E.
