I am not a student let me say this right off the bat. Although I am a novice to programming and the like as far as computers go. I do have an electrnoics degree and work in industrial automation but the questions I have are well above my head and I am trying to get a hold on something for a project I am working on.
I would like to know a little about embedded XP. As in how it works. I am not sure if it will work for my application but have a feeling it may. I basically want to put XP on the smallest chip possible and the main components I would want to retain are networking capabilities.
What are some of the chips I can use embedded XP on and links would help a lot.
I need them to have a networking port on them. RJ-45
I may also need to have a need for USB to be plugged in.
I guess what I am looking for is a mini computer without the bulk of a PC or even a laptop for that matter. But still have the ability to load some drivers and connect throught my router to it.
I want this on a budget 3-5 hundred dollars.
It is for a home automation type communication project I am working on. If anyone is able to help please post here or email me direct.
