Hi all, for an university project we would need an ARM11MCU with LCD or better TFT connection. Actually there are two projects involved one is the UI and the second is measurement/controlling. We have to display buttons and graphs for various AD Channels. Could anybody recommend a SBC or development board, which can be easily adopted to our application board? I think it should be something like a CPU module or something...A big plus would be if there would be SD/MMC slot(s) or IDE.

Many thanks in advanced

I presume there are a few ways to go.

You can get "Basic Stamp" kits and Pic kits, which are essentially computers on an ICU.  I believe the interface is somewhat limited, but they should be able to run a form of BASIC, I think.  Perhaps more.

A quick search for ARM11, and I found this website with several kits available, I think at reasonable cost.

There is some discussion about a computer development system called the Raspberry PI that is soon to be released in the UK (not the USA at this time), although undoubtedly they will show up on E-Bay shortly after release.

Searching for ARM11 on E-Bay, one finds several ARM11 devices, both working devices, and development boards.
