You can run eCos on generic PC hardware, so any of the free
IA32 VMs will work.  I've run it on Qemu without any problems.
There's also a synthetic Linux target that doesn't cost

As for cheap hardware, I'd probably look at the ARM development
boards from olimex.com or similar.  IIRC there are eCos ports
to some of the Cirrus, Philips, and Atmel parts on those
