SAN DIEGO - October 1, 2006 - The NetBurner Mod5234 10/100 Embedded Ethernet module includes a programmable I/O controller with its own core and memory system, enabling it to perform complex timing and I/O management independently of the CPU. The eTPU is essentially an independent microcontroller designed for timing control, I/O handling, serial communications, motor control and engine control applications.
The eTPU Timing Functions include:
- Synchronized PWM
- Input Capture/Output Compare
- Pulse and Frequency Measurement
- Pulse/Period Accumulate
- Stepper Motor
- Queued Output Match for Complex Outputs
Embedded Communication Functions include:
- UART with Flow Control
- Proprietary Protocols
The industrial temperature rated Mod5234 is based on the 32-bit Freescale MCF5234 running at 147MHz. In addition to the eTPU features the module provides:
- 10/100 Embedded Ethernet
- 2MByte Flash memory
- 8MByte SDRAM
- 3 UARTS
For applications requiring more UARTS, the eTPU can be configured to provide up to 6 additional serial ports.
The Mod5234 Network Development Kit ($499) includes all the hardware, software and tools you need to start writing application code for your product or idea immediately. The kit includes a Mod5234 module, Integrated Development Environment (IDE), uC/OS RTOS, TCP/IP Stack, Web Server, Flash File System, ANSII C/C++ Compiler, Graphical Debugger and Deployment Tools.
The MOD5234 is available now at a price of $99 in 100 unit quantities.
