Well, if you're handy with a soldering iron and you have a Linux or
Windows PC with a parallel port (for programming), the uIEC design and
the firmware are GPL. The IDE version can be created with no surface
mount components (ATMEGA644 DIP 40 pin + 40 pin IDE connector).
It'll probably cost USD$15.00-20.00 or so in parts, though.
