The 177-MHz NS9360 MCU targets compact network applications. Digi's chip is based on the ARM 926EJ-S, the most powerful ARM-based processor core with DSP support. The core also has ARM Jazelle Java hardware acceleration. Standard interfaces include 10/100BaseT Ethernet, a memory controller, host and device USB 2.0, an LCD controller, I2C, IEEE 1284, four serial ports, and up to 73 GPIO. The IDE uses Digi's royalty-free NET+Works platform, which includes Express Logic's ThreadX real-time operating system, Microcross GNU X-Tools, and the MAJIC debugger. Green Hills' Multi IDE also supports the MCU. The NS9360 can run a range of operating systems, such as Linux, Windows CE, and VxWorks. Pricing starts at $10.95. Development kits start at $1995.
