    You need to provide some details on what and how. Give us an idea of the components you plan on using or the tasks it will perform.

    There are thousands of different micros out there. A few of the items you will need to decide are..

    • How many GPIO will you need?
    • Are you running any bandwidth intensive algorithms (PID etc)?
    • Do you need ADC?
    • Do you need timers?
    • Do you need communications peripherals (RS232, SPI, I2C)?
    • How much FLASH/EEPROM do you require for your application?
    • How much RAM?

    Added translation of several of the more unusual acronyms for those viewing this post that may find them cryptic.
