I don't know if this is the best place to put this.
I've been working with the ATtiny25/45/85 and ATmega8/32 for a while doing lots of motion control, lighting, frequency analysis and a little DAQ.
I really like them, but I'm looking for something with a bit more power, I need to do some DSP (I would like ADC & DAC on board min: 12bit) and it needs to be USB compliant (device) it also need to be able to solder them by hand, tqfp etc...
I picked up Xmega128a4u dev board:
It looks like there isn't lots of guidance on the Xmega series. Would I be better of getting into the 32bit UC3 stuff? or will that be a headache? Can anyone recommend some dev boards if this is a better option?
Then there are also the ARM-based uC's, I assume these may be over my head.
I've working with RPI's and the Teensy 3.0, this stuff is pretty simple and need a platform for industry rather then a hobbyist.
