The RabbitCore RCM4510W is a Rabbit® 4000 compact core module that features pin-compatibility with other 4000 based core modules. The RCM4510 is designed to mount directly to a user-supplied motherboard and acts as the microprocessor for the embedded system. Integrated on the RCM4510W is a Digi XBee® RF module, which supports two network protocols: Ember 2.5 stack and the ZigBee PRO Feature Set.
The RCM4510W allows OEMs and integrators to create an easy-to-use, low-power, wireless mesh network as part of the control solution for embedded applications. The Development Kit provides all the essentials needed to design a wireless microprocessor system. The kit includes a RabbitCore RCM4510W core module, a prototyping board, accessory parts, Dynamic C® integrated development environment, and an extensive library of drivers and sample programs.
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 RCM4510W next-generation RabbitCore module adds ZigBee®/802.15.4 mesh networking connectivity to the existing Rabbit® 4000 microprocessor features allowing you to create a low-cost, low-power, wireless network as part of your control solution for your embedded application.
The RCM4510W RabbitCore module is equipped with an on-board ZigBee/802.15.4 modem for wireless connectivity. Features also include 512K flash memory and SRAM, 40 general-purpose I/O, and up to 9 general-purpose I/O 4 of which can be set up as analog inputs via the ZigBee module.
At the heart of the RCM4510W is the Rabbit 4000 microprocessor which features a clock speed of up to 29.49 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 RCM4510W RabbitCore module is easily interchangeable with other RCM4xxx based products due to electrical and functional compatibility. With a small footprint of 1.84” x 2.42” (47 mm x 61 mm), the RCM4510W is compact and can easily be mounted directly onto a user-designed motherboard, along with CMOS-compatible digital devices.
Please note that Znet 2.5 is not recommended for new designs. While it is an effective solution, new customers/applications should instead consider the XBee ZB version. The ZB module is designed to support the latest Zigbee Pro feature set which provides the most advanced ZigBee network capabilities.
The RCM4510W Development Kit has the essentials that you need to design your own wireless microprocessor-based system. The kit come complete with a RabbitCore module, a prototyping board, accessory parts and all development tools specifically designed to get you up and running in minutes. Development kits come with our industry-proven Dynamic C integrated development software that includes an editor, compiler, and in-circuit debugger. Programming is easy with hundreds of samples and libraries that can be used as building blocks to your code.
