    Well the tooling costs alot, so you will have to commit to a certian
    fairly large number of units. (i.e. 1000)..

    You could perhaps have an easier time adding features to make it a 'geek
    board': Say two PPC chips (with cache please :) ), a TMS320C6701 DSP
    (@167mhz doing single point it gets 1Gflop!), lotsa digital and analog IO
    ports... cool stuff like that, I'd spend $700 on it (providing the PPCs
    were reasonably fast)..
