How to Buy

The RabbitCore RCM4300 offers larger memory for memory intensive applications. The microSD™ card slot can handle cards that store up to 2 GB of data, making this an ideal module for data logging applications. In combination with our FAT file system, users can easily access data via the built-in web server or by simply using the hot-swappable feature. Dynamic C® adds Megabyte Code Support™ (MCS), which allows the use of 1 MB of on-board SRAM for shared memory and code space.

The RCM4300 is pin-compatible with other RCM4XXX core modules, enabling migration to other designs with specific requirements. The Development Kit makes evaluation easy with all the hardware and software needed to get started quickly.

RCM4300 Series Description

The RCM4300 RabbitCore Module offers the features and performance to support complex embedded designs such as data encryption, secure data transmission, and web server applications.

The RCM4300 core module provides the capability to use up to 1 GB mass storage with the industry-standard miniSD™ memory cards which you can swap with another miniSD card without powering down the module. This gigabyte hot-swapping capability offers a new level of functionality to support data logging and automatic meter reading applications.

In addition to mass storage, the RCM4300 core module offers the designer more than 1 MB of SRAM for shared code and data to support algorithmic-intensive applications such as graphics and encryption. This greater code space allows you to transmit data in non-critical secure embedded applications. Now you can log as much as 1 GB of data and transmit it using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) to protect the integrity and confidentiality of the information. You will also be able to design a graphic user interface to make it easier for an operator to monitor the system.

RCM4300 Series Development Kit

To ease the design effort and reduce development time, use the RCM4300 Development Kit. You get all the essentials needed to design a microprocessor-based embedded system with mass storage. The kit includes an RCM4300 core module with a miniSDTM card, a prototyping board, accessories, and development tools to get you up and running quickly. Along with our industry-proven Dynamic C® integrated development software – incorporating an editor, compiler, and in-circuit debugger – there is also the FAT file system familiar to many programmers, RabbitWeb™ for creating HTML web pages, and Rabbit’s Secure Socket Layer (SSL) utility.

Industry-proven Dynamic C® 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.
