Microcontrollers continue to improve their networking capabilities. CMX's DHCP Client, one of these improvements, eliminates the need to use fixed IP addresses on a range of 8- and 16-bit microcontrollers. This allows cost-effective microcontrollers to be used where more power proc-essors used to be required.
DHCP Client works with standard Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) servers. The client software fully supports all derivatives of the 8051, the Atmel AVR, Hitachi's H8S/300H and H8S/2000, the Infineon 80C16x, the Microchip PIC18CXXX, the Mitsubishi M16C, the Philips 8051-XA, the STMicroelectronics ST10, and ZiLOG's Z80, Z180, and eZ80 series of processors. The DHCP client works in conjunction with CMX-MicroNet.
The existing CMX-TCP/IP kit for 16- and 32-bit processors includes DHCP server support. In addition to other Web servers such as HTTP, FTP, and Telnet servers, the DHCP server works with the new 8- and 16-bit DHCP client software.
DHCP Client is priced at $750. CMX-MicroNet prices start at $5500. All CMX software in-cludes complete source code, no royalties on shipped products, and free technical support/updates.
