Any 8 bit processor should do.

Hi, Here is my DCF77 PIC LED clock C source code : http://www.micro-examples.com/public/microex-navig/doc/100-p16f84-led-dcf-clock.html This may help you to start to decode DCF77 radio signals Regards, Bruno

hello

i'm a quite newby to embedded systems and have some basic questions to
you.

i'd like to build up a alarm clock which has some special features as:
- radio controlled
- LED projection on wall/ceiling
- fully customizeable awake times (this is the main reason), eg. mo,
fri, 14.4.2007 .....

of course the clock needs to have a display with backlight (on
keypress)

sounds like a normal alarmclock you can buy for 20-30 EURO but i was
not able to find one that is customizeable at all.

my questions:
- what kind of embedded system can i use therefore
- do there exist ready-to-go starter kids where nearly all componets
are present (at least CPU and mainboard/backplane)
- what are the costs i can count with
- anyone have some links where i can "start" up building an embedded
system?
