The RabbitCore RCM3600 is a perfect introduction into embedded control and monitoring. Its small size and ease of integration when paired with Dynamic C® allow engineers to develop a control and monitoring solution for many of today’s applications. The RCM3600 mounts directly onto a user-designed motherboard with a single 2x20 dual row IDC header, interfacing with all types of CMOS-compatible digital devices. Built-in low EMI features, including a clock spectrum spreader, practically eliminate EMI problems, which helps with passing CE and RF emissions tests.
Rabbit hardware and Dynamic C are designed in a complementary fashion for maximum performance and ease of use in embedded systems. The additional software components in Dynamic C allow you to add functionality for customized embedded applications.
The RCM3600 RabbitCore is the lowest priced Rabbit® 3000 microprocessor based core module designed for a wide variety of applications. The RCM3600 features 512K Flash / 512K SRAM or 256K Flash / 128K SRAM, 4 serial ports, and an extremely small footprint (2.11" × 1.23" / 54 × 31 mm). The RCM3610 is the least expensive of the Rabbit 3000 microprocessor based core modules with a development kit price of $239. Extensive demo programs and software application templates make it easy to get the RCM3600 up and running in record time.
This RabbitCore mounts directly on a user-designed motherboard with a single 0.1" (2.54 mm) 2x20 dual-row IDC header and can interface with all manner of CMOS-compatible digital devices. 33 digital I/O (shared with serial ports), power, and other signals are routed directly to the motherboard. Built-in low – EMI features, including a clock spectrum spreader, practically eliminate EMI problems, helping OEMs pass European CE and other regulatory RF emissions tests.
The RCM3600 is equipped with +5 VDC tolerant I/O, quadrature encoder inputs, PWM outputs, and pulse capture and measurement capabilities. The RCM3600 also features a battery-backable real-time clock, glueless memory and I/O interfacing, and low-power "sleepy" modes. An alternate I/O bus can be configured for 8 data lines and 6 address lines (shared with parallel I/O).
Programmed with Rabbit's Dynamic C® integrated development environment, the RCM3600 executes math, logic, and I/O exceptionally quickly. The Rabbit 3000 microprocessor, RCM3600, and Dynamic C were designed in a complementary fashion for maximum performance and ease of use in embedded systems. Rabbit's industry-proven Dynamic C development system is a C language environment that includes an editor, compiler, and in-circuit debugger. User programs can be compiled, executed, and debugged using Dynamic C and a programming cable-no in-circuit emulator is required. An extensive library of drivers and sample programs is provided.

Designing with RabbitCores
The RabbitCore family of microprocessor core modules is designed to facilitate rapid development and implementation of embedded systems. RabbitCores are powered by high-performance 8-bit Rabbit microprocessors with extensive integrated features and a C-friendly instruction set designed for use with the Dynamic C development system. The RabbitCore mounts on a user-designed motherboard and acts as the controlling microprocessor for the user's system. Small in size but packed with powerful features, these core modules give designers a complete package for control and communication.
