Need help to pick micro

I am looking for a micro that is easy to setup in own circuit.

I need it to read 4 digital inputs and 4 analog inputs (4xADC) and write 4
analog outputs (4xDAC or 4 X duty cycle). Inside the micro I will be doing
some control stuff.

I have only experience in programming micro controllers on a development
board, so it would be nice if it is easy to build the auxiliary electronics
(eksample circuits would be realy nice).

Hope someone can help me.

I like the TI MSP430 and Cygnal 8051's. If you go PIC be sure to use the
18F series. All have ADCs and DACs.

HTH.

4 DAC/PWM outputs on-chip might not be such an easy requirement.

Try the TI MSC1211.  It has 4 16bit DACs, as well as 8 channels of 24bit
A/D.

A nice part. Fairly fast 8051 core, and up to 32K of flash in a
TQFP-64.

DACs yes, but a quick glance at the Cygnal 8051s and the Microchip 18Fxxx
seem to indicate parts with > 4 ADCs and >= 4 PWMs.

Re: Need help to pick micro
Hi,

I have been looking at the Cygnal 8051 (C8051F000). It has 8 Adc, 2 dac, 5
PWM modules plus it has 32k flash ram.
It all looks good to me :)

To get started with the C8051F000 I was thinking of using the C8051F000DK
development kit.

Now the questions:
    Is it easy to get started with the C8051F000DK development kit?
    Can a noob setup the blinky program in 10 min?
    Does it have good example programs (like blinky)?
