[ECOS] Microcontroller with many UARTS

Interesting problem. The Motorola MPC850 has 3 serial ports, not sure about
any of the other Processors. I do not know of any Micro controllers that
have more than 2 serial ports but I am sure that they exists (try looking at
the AVR family from Atmel). You could try using an FPGA + OpenCore + UARTS
and create your own custom "hardware" in one chip. This would also allow you
to use eCos has the OS if you wanted to.

Does anyone know of a microcontroller with a lot of
UARTS on it (preferably a Motorola)?  If not does
anyone have any clues on how to connect say 16 or so
UARTS to a microcontroller?  Right now it is for my
curosity or something I would like to build for my
home, but maybe try to sell it.
