Anything in particular, or are you referring to 'solder it together' solutions? I'm looking to jump through as few hoops as possible, especially on the hardware side.

Well the fact I am a hardware engineer as oppose to a software engineer or an administrator... a small PC just is a bit meh... BUT a piece of kit that you have control over a bunch of I/O in a completely configurable way at a frequency which is quite useful, all via C is beyond useful.

We now have a dozen or so Arduino's in my lab for general use if someone wants to quickly setup some set of tests... I have mine to sort out my walking arc generator... sure I could use a 555 timer, but hooking it upto an Arduino means I can change hte duty and freq (and thus the audio pitch of the arc and its riserate) under software
a walking arc generator? wtf is that?
