I'm a little confused - how do you think your going to sell this 'new' device when plenty of these already exists in the market...
Price my device functionality using the devices you suggested then get back to me.
This is good (we're thinking along the same lines), but lacks the number of I/O that my device has.
The other issue is having the conditioning right on the board so the user doesn't have to deal with that aspect of it. It is easy enough to do, but most people don't have that knowledge.
My professional experience is in industrial instrumentation and controls, so I know the market pretty well. I know what things cost.
Pricing on these devices is paramount. It drives everything. The objective is to drive the price low by using every advantage that the current technologies offer. By using non-bleeding edge devices (because they are not needed in this application), it is possible to reduce the cost significantly.--
The most powerful weapon in the world is ignorance. Politicians exploit it to achieve almost anything they want.
