Look at the STM32 range from ST. Not /so/ cheap, but very cheerful,
wide range of parts. 32 bit ARM Thumb 2 core, USB, CAN, RTC,
timers, serial ports, ADCs, etc etc etc. Available with Flash/RAM sizes
ranging from 16kb/6kB up to 512kB/64kB. Also well supported by GCC.
I have a few STM32 development boards here; I should try to get Lua
going on them; it should work great.
