Digi Connect ME 9210 Embedded Device Server

Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII) recently announced the Digi Connect ME 9210 high performance embedded device server. The Digi Connect ME 9210 enables OEMs to easily add secure Ethernet connectivity to their products and is faster, includes more memory and has more peripheral interfaces than any other device server. The Digi Connect ME 9210 is pin-compatible and interchangeable with the current Digi Connect ME. Digi Connect ME 9210 JumpStart Kits for NET+OS are available now for an introductory price of $399.

The Digi Connect ME 9210 device server features a 75 MHz ARM9 processor, and 8MB RAM and 2 or 4 MB Flash. It also features the most peripheral interfaces including serial, SPI, I2C, GIO, CAN, 1-wire and integrated Flexible Interface Modules (FIMs). FIMS provide custom interfaces for tailoring the module to the user’s exact application needs.

The Digi Connect ME 9210 embedded module features an integrated, NIST-certified AES accelerator that provides secure network communication with SSL/TLS and IPsec protocols. The accelerator encrypts and decrypts data streams up to 10 times faster than a software-only solution and provides strong data privacy for any customer information stored or transmitted by the module.

The Digi Connect ME 9210 also features unique power functionality, including power-over-Ethernet (PoE) support to allow the design of devices that require no external power; and Digi Dynamic Power Control[tm], a complete set of hardware and software features for product designs that demand low-power consumption and advanced power management. This reduces the power required to operate the Digi Connect ME 9210 and saves power on PoE networks.
