I'm new to the embedded device world, but I've got an idea I'd like to try to implement. I found an integrated circuit that will give me the input I want, now I need to find a device to log the data coming in from the circuit (a couple floating point numbers/every few seconds) and display the data via a web interface. The IC works over an SPI or I2C interface.
My background is in Python and Linux being able to use these on the device would be great, but the low-cost/power requirement is a higher priority than the toolkit. I'm hoping to find something well under $100 which rules out Gumstix and Beagle Board.
