The new RabbitCore modules provide a practical combination of features for applications as simple as serial-to-Ethernet, as well as embedded control and networking for the most critical devices and equipment. The RCM4000 and RCM4100 RabbitCore families take advantage of Rabbit 4000 features such as integrated Ethernet on-chip, hardware DMA, 16-bit memory support, and up to six serial ports and 40 GPIO lines with 4 levels of alternate pin functions. The RCM4000 family is equipped with Ethernet and 32MB of NAND flash perfect for remote data logging and control, while the RCM4100 is the non-Ethernet family running up to 60 MHz and with a 12-bit A/D converter and up to six serial ports for easy connectivity to various peripheral devices.
Programming the RabbitCore modules is simple with the industry-proven Dynamic C® software development system. Tight hardware-software integration substantially reduces development time and cost. In addition, Rabbit developers do not need costly in-circuit emulators — programming is accomplished simply by connecting an interface cable from a PC to a Rabbit-based target system. The Rabbit 4000-based series of core modules will be released with the latest version of Dynamic C that supports the processor’s over 500 new instructions resulting in reduced code size and faster program execution. An innovative, intelligent I/O configuration utility provides a flexible approach to selecting pin functions and values that considerably reduces development time and removes conflicts from pin assignments.
The RabbitCore RCM4100 Development Kit, priced at $259 and including an RCM4110 module, is available now and can be seen in the Rabbit booth (Booth 1942) at this week’s Embedded Systems Conference in
