Rabbit, a Digi International company, today announced the Rabbit 6000 microcontroller with on-chip WiFi.
The Rabbit 6000 features on-chip 10/100 Base-T Ethernet and also 802.11a/b/g WiFi MAC. The WiFi MAC module supports WPA2 wireless security and is ready to connect to external RF circuitry.
The Rabbit 6000 is manufactured in 90nm process at Faraday/UMC .
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
- Quadrature Decoder
- Integrated hardware and software environment
- Easily add an HMI as well as CANbus protocol support with the on-board FIMs
- 4 PWM channels, 4 PPM channels
In addition, two Flexible Interface Modules (FIMs) allow engineers to configure support for protocols such as CANbus, Secure Digital (SD) and Secure Digital Input Output (SDIO).
