Hi, yes - I did come across that project. It would be ideal for what I
want. The only problems being that their development board doesn't seem
to be readily available yet, and as you say, the pre-production version
is rather expensive even if you can one allocated to you.
As I don't need anything particularly powerful or fancy, I think I
should be able to pick up something suitable on eBay fairly cheaply,
if only I can find a board where decent information on its programming
interface is available. Partly because I think manufacturers should be
rewarded for making information available to open source developers,
but mostly because it will make the board more useful to me.
