Rabbit Semiconductor Rolls Out Multi-Port Serial-to-Ethernet Kit

12/10/2004 - Rabbit Semiconductor announces the introduction of the Multi-Port Serial-to-Ethernet Kit. Rabbit Application Kits enable embedded designers to quickly implement common application needs without designing from scratch. The Multi-Port Serial-to-Ethernet Kit allows multiple ports to convert data from serial to Ethernet. In addition, this new kit allows bi-directional conversion, from Serial-to-Ethernet and Ethernet-to-Serial.

Serial-to-Ethernet conversion is necessary for data to be remotely monitored via most networks or the Internet. The Rabbit Multi-Port Serial-to-Ethernet Kit provides the hardware and software necessary for sensors and other serial devices to communicate via a LAN or other network. Implementation of the optional RabbitWeb software module makes it simple to web-enable applications to allow monitoring and control of serial devices via the Internet or Intranet. Other optional software modules help secure data through SSL and encryption.

The Rabbit Serial-to-Ethernet Kit uses a temperature sensor application to guide users through serial to Ethernet conversion. Based on the RCM3700 RabbitCore, the Kit also includes a prototyping board, the Dynamic C development environment with a royalty-free TCP/IP stack and source code, sample applications, temperature sensor for the sample application, required cables, and assorted accessories. The sample applications highlight functionality such as RS-232 to Ethernet conversion, RS-485 to Ethernet conversion, Ethernet to Serial Conversion, data gathering from serial devices such as the included temperature sensor, digital voltmeter which is not-included, and web-enabling applications.
