I'm looking to do some serious audio crunching, along with custom USB modifications. Lots of kernel module work, plus user space audio processing. A separate project on the same platform if I can get two ethernet ports and bridge (more kernel space stuff, useful for testing). Latency is a concern, I'm looking at RTlinux on dual core or quad core.

Especially hardware questions. eLinux.org is a good starting place. But it would be useful to pick a target idea and find hardware that can take to towards that idea. For example, if you want to monitor something and send that data to your PC, an Arduino might be sufficient. If you want a media server that runs on 12V travel trailer power (like I'm doing with PiBox and a Raspberry Pi) then you might look at the Raspberry Pi. If you want a radar mounted in the nose of a UAV you might look at a PowerPC based custom board with lots of flash and DRAM. "Embedded" can mean lots of things, from very tiny to very big. If you want to play with little, relatively inexpensive devices you can look at some of SparkFun.com's tutorials. They have some projects that you could play with to get started. But these might be less software than hardware. If you're more interested in the software side it's hard to beat the $25 for a Raspberry Pi, then trying to make it have a stripped down OS/application stack aimed at a purpose-specific application. Oh, and another good place to start is Adafruit.com. Lots of good ideas, projects and things there. Finally, you can browse my BeagleBox an PiBox "research" pages on my wiki. They have a number of interesting links that might help, or at least provide some motivation. http://www.graphics-muse.org/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=RaspberryPi.Research http://www.graphics-muse.org/wiki/pmwiki.php?n=BeagleBox.Research -- Michael J.
