I am thinking about my next generation wireless remote control application. My present app uses a Parallax stamp BS2px with a wireless transceiver and an RS232-ethernet interface module. My design is way too expensive, so I've got my eye on a new RF transceiver, and I'm having some trouble deciding on an 8 bit MCU to go with it.

My requirements are as follows:
- SPI interface
- UART
- ethernet interface
- cheap.
- programmable in C, free compiler preferred.
- free software libraries. I don't want to code details of serial port comm or internet comm, I don't want to spend months of programming, I'm not comfortable coding at this level. I want to keep coding at a high level. My code basically handles bi-directional communication between the transceiver and the ethernet interface.

Anybody got any suggestions ?

Much thanks.

if you go for AVR, it has everything except ethernet interface. There is one open source library for AVR ethernet interface, search 'uip', then you will get it

CodevisionAVR is a compiler in C but its limited to 2k of code

I think that ARM is the next generation of MCUs.
