I'm about to do some work with UPnP. The platform I need is described below. Any suggestions?
The specs are:
a) Any small embedded microprocessor c/w a multitasking OS and a TCP/IP stack
b) 10BaseT Ethernet interface
c) A few discrete I/O and a 1Wire interface for the Dallas temperature sensor
The development specs are:
i) Any free or open source compiler (C preferred, but will consider C++ or Java)
ii) Open source UPnP stack (SSDP, GENA, HTTP, etc.)
So far, I have found several possible hardware platforms. They are:
PIC micro, Ethernet, TCP/IP all for about $60.
Good price, but doesn't appear to have a multitasking OS.
CPU, Ethernet, TCP/IP, and Linux for about $160
CPU, Ethernet, TCP/IP, and OS for about $110
