RabbitCore Models RCM3200
The RCM3200 RabbitCore microprocessor core module is the ideal option for designers who want to rapidly develop and implement embedded systems with fully integrated 10/100Base-T Ethernet connectivity. Measuring only 2.73" x 1.85" (69 x 47 mm), the RCM3200 operates at 3.3 V (with 5 V-tolerant I/O) and features 6 serial ports. Built-in low-EMI features, including a clock spectrum spreader, practically eliminate EMI problems, helping OEMs pass CE and regulatory RF emissions tests.
Powered by the Rabbit 3000 microprocessor running at 44.2 MHz, the RCM3200 is equipped with 512K Flash memory, 512K program execution SRAM and 256K data SRAM, quadrature decoder, PWM outputs, and pulse capture capabilities. Two 34-pin connection headers provide 52 digital I/O shared with the 6 serial ports and alternate I/O features. The integrated Ethernet port allows real-time local or worldwide connectivity.
The RCM3200 features a battery-backable real-time clock, glueless memory and I/O interfacing, and low-power "sleepy" modes. A fully enabled slave port permits easy master-slave interfacing with another processor-based system, and an alternate I/O bus can be configured for 8 data lines and 6 address lines (shared with parallel I/O). The Rabbit 3000 processor's compact, C-friendly instruction set and high clock speeds produce exceptionally fast results for math, logic, and I/O.
RabbitCores mount directly on a user-designed motherboard and act as the controlling microprocessor for the user's system. RabbitCores can interface with all manner of CMOS-compatible digital devices through the user's motherboard. Programs are developed with our industry-proven Dynamic C® SE development system, a C-language environment that includes an editor, compiler, and in-circuit debugger (Dynamic C SE is included free of charge in low-cost development kits). Efficient hardware and software integration facilitates rapid design and development. User programs can be compiled, executed, and debugged using Dynamic C and a programming cable-no in-circuit emulator is required. An extensive library of drivers and sample programs is provided, along with royalty-free TCP/IP stack with source.
Designing with RabbitCores The RabbitCore family of microprocessor core modules is designed to facilitate rapid development and implementation of embedded systems. RabbitCores are powered by high-performance 8-bit Rabbit microprocessors with extensive integrated features and a C-friendly instruction set designed for use with the Dynamic C® development system. The RabbitCore mounts on a user-designed motherboard and acts as the controlling microprocessor for the user's system. Small in size but packed with powerful features, these core modules give designers a complete package for control and communication.
The integrated Ethernet port frees designers from the limitations of serial-port communications and control and permits instant local or worldwide connectivity using low-cost networking hardware. Embedded systems using the Ethernet RabbitCore module can be controlled and monitored (as well as programmed and debugged when using appropriate accessory hardware) across any network or the Internet.
