Features of the new Rabbit 6000 microcontroller include:

  • Rabbit 6000 advanced 16-bit core
  • up to 200 MHz operation
  • 24-bit external address bus, 16-bit external data bus
  • 32K battery backable SRAM
  • 1 MB internal DRAM
  • 16-channel DMA
  • Ten 8-bit Timers
  • One 10-bit Timer with 2 match registers
  • One 16-bit Timer with 8 match registers
  • On-board 10/100 Ethernet
  • On-board 802.11 a/b/g MAC
  • 64 I/O and up to 6 serial ports (4 as SPI)
  • USB 2.0 full speed (host)
  • 8-channel 12-bit A/D converter samples up to 1Megasamples/s
  • HDLC
  • I2C
  • Quadrature Decoder
