You say there are lots of Audio combo ADC/DAC's, are there any decent
precision ADC/DAC chips?  The only stuff I've found has been very "audio" (
Max INL of 16 if you're *lucky* ).

What I'd love in a perfect world is an Analog Devices ADUC7026 with an Atmel
core, or an Arduino port to ARM7, but I'll settle for a good ADC/DAC combo
to hang off an Arduino controller...
