Just about any 8-bit microcontroller with a UART and a few K-bytes of flash should be sufficient for RDM. Add more flash if you want to program in C instead of assembly, and having >1K-byte of RAM makes things easier. Many RDM products have been built with PICs (16F and 18F series) and 8051 derivatives.

For the most complex products that are likely to need a Full Featured responder, the resources needed to support RDM will be insignificant compared the total computational load on the processor.
