Looks good – I’ll investigate your website and maybe contact you about participating. Seems to me the key to the price point is getting a solution with the memory on the same chip as the processor (full system-on-a chip – SOAC). This cuts down BOM costs and also greatly simplifies the PCB. On your stated resource requirements, the AVR32 seems to achieve full SOAC for a USB or Serial connection, and with just one additional chip, Ethernet. I’m sure the ARM based products will catch up with this level of integration within the next year or so.

That's pretty much what we're tying to do with eLua ( Making it for under $30 might be a bit of a problem though :)

There was some talk here about a LuaChip a few years back. I don't know
whether anything came out of that, though. Search the lua-l archives.
