    I wouild like to find a microcontroller that will handle the following on a single chip (or with minimum support chips)

    * Analog inputs - multi-channel
    * USB slave or master hardware
    * Programmable gain amplifier built in.
    * Realtime clock built-in
    * battery backed RAM (or suitable alternative)
    * Simple web server code for firmware updates and debugging using a web browser
    * Built-in buck or boost power converter circuit for converting available power to the voltage supply level of the processor (1.5V battery to 30V unregulated)

    and while we are at it... a bonus would be
    * Ethernet port built-in
    * rs232 level shifters built-in
    * rs485 port differential driver built-in

    Any Ideas?

    Cypress makes the PSoC(programmable system on a chip), which, I believe, does what you are wanting. They just released a $25 dev board for the PSoC4... making it hobby viable...
