I'm looking to branch out beyond the PIC chips that I've programmed in the past. I'm looking for a 32 bit microcontroller with an external memory bus.
Beyond those requirements, speed is probably the next concern. I'd prefer something with16 bit ADC and DAC but I suppose that might be asking a bit much. Of course, it has to cost nothing...
Seriously, I'm quite unfamiliar with the 32 bit microcontroller world and trying to find a part with an external memory bus hasn't been as easy as I thought it would be. It can be downright impossible to determine from a mfr's literature which parts have the external bus interface and which don't.
So I thought I'd come to the group for recommendations. I am a hobbyist, and while I'm willing to spend some money on development boards and tools, I'm not going to spend past 'this-is-fun' levels.
I appreciate your input!
