Rabbit Semiconductor Named Innovation of the Year Awards Finalist by EDN

2/6/2003 - Rabbit Semiconductor has been selected from a field of hundreds of candidates as a finalist in the EDN 2002 Innovation of the Year Awards competition. This exclusive awards program, sponsored by EDN Magazine, is dedicated to honoring truly outstanding engineering products in the electronics industry. Products/technologies qualifying for a 2002 EDN Innovation award must have been introduced and commercially marketed from January 1, 2002 through December 31, 2002. Seventeen product/technology areas were eligible for consideration in addition to the Innovator of the Year award. A panel of EDN's technical editors selected finalist products in each category. Rabbit Semiconductor had its RCM3400 Analog Core Module selected in the Computers, Boards, Buses category. A complete list of finalists in all categories will appear in the March 6, 2003 issue of EDN and on the EDN Access web site www.edn.com.

The RCM3400 analog RabbitCore provides a known-good processor and analog input subsystem for OEMs to quickly integrate into custom designs. The RCM3400 features a low-EMI Rabbit 3000-based CPU subsystem running at 29.4 MHz, with 512K Flash / 512K SRAM or 256K Flash / 256K SRAM, 5 serial ports, and 8 channels of programmable gain analog input in an extremely small footprint (1.37" × 1.16" / 34 × 29 mm). The RCM3400 comes with a pre-assigned MAC I.D. to be Ethernet ready and the development board features 10/100Base-T Ethernet and can be used as a reference design in conjunction with Dynamic C's royalty-free TCP/IP software libraries. Extensive demo programs and software application templates make it easy to get the RCM3400 up and running in record time.

Winners of the 2002 Innovation/Innovator of the Year Awards will be chosen by EDN's readers through an online ballot on the EDN Access web site www.edn.com. We encourage you to visit the EDN Web site to review the magazine's comments on the RCM3400 Analog Core Module. Finalists will be honored and winning products will be announced at EDN's Innovation/Innovator Awards ceremony on April 22, 2003 at the Pan Pacific Hotel in San Francisco and published in the May 1, 2003 issue of EDN.
