Rabbit Semiconductor Unveils RCM3300 Microprocessor Core Module

3/5/2004 - Rabbit Semiconductor is pleased to announce the release of the RCM3300 microprocessor core module. The new RCM3300 and recently released RCM3700 support a software bundle composed of three modules developed to enable rapid web browser development, provide a secure socket layer for Ethernet data transfer, and manage on-board serial Flash data.

The RabbitWeb module is a rapid HTTP/HTML web development extension that can read and write program variables remotely, while eliminating complex CGI programming. It also easily creates controls such as pull-down menus or control buttons on a Web interface while ensuring valid input values and proper user authorization. RabbitWeb elegantly indicates input errors for easy correction and most importantly yields a 10X reduction in CGI programming and debugging time.

The File Allocation Table (FAT) File System module enables a ready to run serial Flash-based file system. It works with the Dynamic C HTTP server to reliably update content to the FAT such as databases and web pages. This module also supports a battery backed wear-reducing cache system to protect the file system during power loss.

The Secure Socket Layer (SSL) module provides HTTPS Security for 8-Bit Embedded Devices using the Rabbit 3000 microprocessor. Fast processing of complex encryption algorithms (up to 120 Kbits/sec) supports HTTPS with SSL version 3 and Transport Layer Security (TLS) version 1. This module is royalty and license free and includes a digital certificate creation utility. Existing web applications can be secured with less than 10 lines of code.

The new RCM3300 and lower-cost RCM3700 RabbitCores are ideal options for designers who want to rapidly develop and implement secure web browser enabled embedded systems. The RCM3300 is derived from industrial client feedback and combines traditional RabbitCore product strengths into one device. The RCM3300 is fully loaded: Rabbit 3000 @ 44MHz clock, 10/100Base-T Ethernet connectivity, 4 or 8 MB Serial Flash, 512K Flash, 512K program execution and 512K data SRAM. 49 digital I/O shared with the 5 serial ports operate at 3.3 V (with 5 V-tolerant I/O).

Priced from $69 (qty. 1000), RCM3300s are available to ship March 26. The Secure Embedded Web Application Kit is priced at $499 for a limited time and includes an RCM3700, RabbitWeb, FAT File System, SSL, and standard Rabbit Semiconductor kit contents. An RCM3300 Development kit without software modules is priced at $399.
