Tinkerlog of Alex - Embedded Experiments
Faster prototyping. Easy to build, even for beginners. Comes with a 3 AA cell battery holder. Uses ATtiny2313V-10PU microcontroller.
Tiny2313 Proto Board
"This Tiny2313 Proto Board is for all these one-off projects and prototypes. You want it more permanent than on a breadboard but don’t want make a custom PCB for it. The board comes with 10 components only and is really easy to solder."
Programmable LED How To
This is a tiny blinking device. The blinking sequence can be reprogrammed with the use of a flash light. It detects changes in lighting and records these changes and finally plays them back.

Raspberry Add Ons from Gordons Projects
You will also find a RTOS called DROSS - The Drogon Real-time Operating System here.
"The Raspberry Ladder is a small kit comprising PCB with LEDs, resistors and switches intended to be used to experiment with the Raspberry Pi’s GPIO functions and hopefully to get people interested in soldering up their own projects. Soldering is not difficult and it’s a good skill to learn if you are keen to learn more about electronics. (or repairing jewelry!)"

NoccyLabs - Electronics and microcontrollers
Here you can find some information and experiments on the TI Launchpad - MSP430 series, Atmel AVR/Arduino and Microchip PICkit2 / PIC16F series.
MSP430 LaunchPad and Value Line MCUs provide a complete development environment to enable applications including 3D glasses, gaming controls, touch sensing, smoke/fire detectors, wireless networking and more.
The LaunchPad development kit is a MSP430 MCU Value Line kit. The open source kit includes all of the hardware and software needed to easily launch designs based on TI’s MSP430 Value Line MCUs, they offer up to 10X performance and 10X battery life over 8-bit MCUs. LaunchPad supports rapid prototyping and development by allowing developers to quickly drop-in MSP430 Value Line MCUs to evaluate, program or debug devices.

Project is free. Almost all source codes are available.
Web51 - Project start page
Twisted Pair Ethernet 10 Mbit 802.3,Serial TTL level compatible line RS232 (RxD, TxD, RTS, CTS), 32 kB RAM, 64 kB FLASH, 2kB EEPROM.
Murray's Website is missing so here are the related resources.
ET have produced a remarkable board in the WEB51. It is based on the popular Atmel AT89C51RD2 microcontroller, and features the RealTek RTL8019AS full-duplex ethernet controller chip.
You get a huge 64K In-System-Programmable FLASH memory for code and web content, backed up by up to a further 4 optional, I2C addressable EEPROM memory chips.
The ET-WEB51 TCP/IP Ethernet Web Control Board comes preloaded with TCP/IP software that allows you to control outputs, sense inputs and write text to an LCD. All this across the Internet via a standard browser.
"From controlling appliances on your home network, to monitoring industrial processes on the other side of the Earth, the ET-WEB51 can do it all."

Freeduino began as a collaborative project to publish open-source Arduino-compatible production files. The files that resulted from this project allow users to create boards that are 100% functionally, electrically and physically compatible with Arduino hardware. Over time, Freeduino has come to mean hardware that is "Arduino-compatible".
Arduino and Freeduino Knowledge
Freeduino is a free-form version of the Arduino, in that is not developed under a centralized design process.There is no Freeduino team, or anyone to ask permission of: anyone, anywhere, can design and produce a Freeduino product, no questions asked, no royalties paid.
It's sort of like electronic harware anarchy- or democracy, depending on how you look at it. We derived the Freeduino files from Arduino for exactly this reason: to see what the Arduino project would have looked like if it had open hardware distribution and manufacturing.
Arduino Open-source Electronics Prototyping
The Arduino Uno is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328 (datasheet). It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz ceramic resonator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button.
It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.
The Ethernet differs from other boards in that it does not have an onboard USB-to-serial driver chip, but has a Wiznet Ethernet interface. This is the same interface found on the Ethernet shield.

"At the moment there can be found an instruction manual of an electronic moving font with LEDs and a clock built up of LEDs. Furthermore information is available about a serial-to-I²C converter, an AT89C2051 evaluation board and a complete TV tuner with an I²C interface."
He also has pages for LC-Displays, and VF-Displays.
"Using this programmer you can program the internal flash of the microcontroller AT89C2051 from Atmel. The AT89C2051 programmer is connected via the serial RS232 interface to a PC. In comparison with other programmers, you do not need a special software, a terminal program is sufficient."

GMC75X Credit Card Microcontroller
Ideal for those small jobs where a standard embedded controller can't be justified. The GMC75X is like a "BASIC Stamp" except that you can program the module in 'C' using C-FLEA and a download cable. Alternatively, use 8051 assembler.
"In the early 1980's, products were designed using the Zilog Z80 micro-processor. These ranged from a simple sequence controller to one of the world's first all digital DC motor controllers. Single and 3-phase 240Vac and 415Vac fully regenerative models were developed. Some are still running today! A common application area was paper and film conversion machinery."
