While I have yet to work with the SitePlayer from Netmedia, their Basic X
family of rapid development microcontrollers are great!
I been working with BX-24P and other models and they are fast and
powerful. You get real-time multi-tasking OS, 32 floating point math, 32k
of EEPROM (8000+ lines of code) and 400 bytes of ram.
