RabbitCore® RCM4200 Series

Microprocessor core module

Device Cloud by Etherios

The RCM4200 series of core modules are pin-compatible and easily interchangeable with other RCM4XXX based products. The RCM4200 acts as the microprocessor of an embedded system and is designed to mount directly to a user-supplied motherboard, allowing CMOS-compatible digital devices to interface with the motherboard. The RCM4200 offers robust features including large memory and Fast Ethernet, making it ideal for intensive communications and data-logging applications. The optional analog helps to diversify your connectivity options.

Evaluation of the RCM4200 is easy with the RabbitCore RCM4200 development kit, which provides all the necessary hardware and software to quickly get started.

Device Manager

Device Manager is a feature of all Digi cellular gateways, routers, devices and components. Device Manager provides a robust suite of network management tools including authentication, configuration management, account management, asynchronous updates and alerts, group and individual software updating, network data storage and gateway programming.

Device Manager empowers IT, network operations and customer support organizations to conquer the challenges of managing the vast array of cellular equipment in their device networks. Network managers can remotely configure, upgrade, monitor and troubleshoot remote devices, and create applications that improve productivity, speed and efficiency.


The RCM4200 family of microprocessor core modules are powerful embedded control devices that offer intelligence, 10/100Base-T Ethernet connectivity, optional analog inputs, and ample memory for sophisticated data logging and serial to Ethernet applications.

The RCM4200 RabbitCore modules are equipped with 10/100 Ethernet connectivity, combined with 4 Mbytes or 8 Mbytes serial flash memory storage for intensive communication and data logging applications. The optional on-board 12-bit analog channels diversify your device connectivity options.

At the heart of the RCM4200 is the Rabbit 4000 microprocessor which features a clock speed of up to 58.98 MHz. Other features include hardware DMA, auxiliary I/O, quadrature decoder, input capture, GPIO lines shared with up to five serial ports, and four levels of alternate pin functions that include variable phase PWM. The Rabbit 4000 boasts an additional 500+ new operational code instructions that increases the processing efficiency, from its predecessor the Rabbit 3000.

The RCM4200 RabbitCore modules are easily interchangeable with other RCM4xxx based products due to electrical and functional compatibility. With a small footprint of 1.84”x2.42” (47mm x 61mm), the RCM4200 is compact and can easily be mounted directly onto a user-designed motherboard, allowing CMOS-compatible digital devices to interface via the user’s motherboard.
