I'm looking for a low cost, low power device that can run Java and has some flash memory, an ethernet port and serial and/or USB ports. I'd like to write a server that will accept commands on its ethernet port and control some devices connected to its serial and USB ports. It's a control application, so it doesn't need a super-fast CPU or a display.
Something like the aJile JNIB seems interesting, but unit costs appear to be several hundred dollars, where I'm hoping for something in the $100 or less range (perhaps it's a pipe dream).
Does anyone know of such a device, or of a good resource for information on these devices?
