Microprocessor Core Module Speeds Embedded Systems Development

The RCM3000 RabbitCore lets designers rapidly develop and implement embedded systems with fully integrated Ethernet connectivity. Powered by the Rabbit 3000, the "EMI-Free microprocessor," this microprocessor core module mounts directly on a user-designed motherboard and acts as the controlling microcontroller for the user's system. The RCM3000 is equipped with 10BaseT Ethernet, up to 512 kbytes each of flash and SRAM, quadrature encoder inputs, and pulse-width modulation (PWM) outputs. The module also offers pulse capture and measurement capabilities. Two 34-pin connection headers provide 52 digital I/O shared with the six serial ports. A pin-compatible RCM3100 without Ethernet is available for parallel development and cost-effective implementation of both Ethernet and non-Ethernet systems. The RCM3000 features a battery-backable real-time clock, glueless memory and I/O interfacing, and ultra-low power sleep modes. Available now, RCM3000 models are priced from $39 in 1000-unit quantities.
