The teensy from PJRC is a good example - uses the Arduino dev 
environment and has all the easy to use libraries, but is a LOT faster 
and has better peripherals. Or you can use other dev environments. It's 
an ARM Cortex something or other.


The BeagleBoard Black is a bigger, more capable example.. You can 
actually run a *nix on it, but has device drivers and such for lots of 
GPIO and timers.
