Rabbit Semiconductor has announced the release of the RCM3000 microprocessor core module designed to implement Ethernet connectivity into embedded systems.

Powered by the company's Rabbit 3000 microprocessor, the 69-by-47mm module is equipped with a 10Base-T Ethernet port for local or Internet connectivity. It also features up to 512KB each of Flash and SRAM, quadrature encoder inputs, PWM outputs, and pulse capture and measurement capabilities.

The module operates from a 3.3V source with 5V-tolerant I/Os and has built-in low EMI features including a clock spectrum spreader. It also offers a battery-backable RTC, glueless memory and I/O interfacing, and sleep mode. A fully enabled slave port permits master-slave interfacing with another processor-based system.

Programs for the module are developed using the company's Dynamic C software development system that includes an editor, compiler, and in-circuit debugger.

The RCM3000 is priced at $30 for quantities of 1,000 units. Also available is the RCM3100 model that doesn't include the Ethernet port.

The company is also offering the RCM3000 development kit for $299. It includes a RabbitCore module (RCM3010 with 256K Flash/128K SRAM), prototyping board, AC adapter (U.S. only), serial cable for programming and debugging, manual, and software.
