    Hello :)

    as for now, our team has got the following assignment:
    'Embedded system with 4 temperature measurement inputs. It must hold a web page that can be accesed via Ethernet from outside.'

    The only criteria we have until now, is that we are suppose to use a Microchip processor.
    as for now, we have found these:
    will this explorer board do the job?
    and as we have understood, we need a daughter board, to get ethernet

    Are there any good tips out there, to get this project?

    ps. We have a teacher, who won't order any components/processors, before everything is 100% looked through, therefore we choose to ask for some advice.

    It seems to me that if you are going to spend 165 USD, then this is much better choice:
    DM163024 - PICDEM.NET 2 http://www.microchipdirect.com/ProductSearch.aspx?Keywords=DM163024

    With this board you get your ethernet/internet and you can use Port A-Port E for your temperature sensors.

    It also has onboard temperature sensor. So... If one of the four temperature sensors that you will need is for local/immediate vicinity temperature... then this sensor is already present, just use the temperature sensor on the board. That way you will only need 3 more sensors.
