    Hi,
    I want to renovate a logic system into a micro based board. I would like to use c and write some code on Xcode(OS X). I am looking to find a simple chip to start on may be 12-18 inputs, 10 outs or so. I have someone to help me get going with the language to get my feet wet, but will likely do some consulting to speed up the curve. If you've used a specific chip and have a part number you like that would be great
    Thanks

    Long ago in my college days, we used Xilinx FPGA's for lab. Wonder if I still have my lab kit...

    I assume you want a processor... what socket is your motherboard?

    For your task (simple monitoring/programming of inputs/outputs) I would suggest a PIC BASIC chip. Much easier to get started.
