The S1S60000 intelligent network controller from Epson Electronics America integrates a TCP/IP protocol stack to allow designers of home networking and security, factory automation, consumer electronics, network-games, and small office equipment to add network functionality to their products.

The built-in, royalty-free protocol stack supports ARP, ICMP, IP, TCP, UDP, HTTP, DHCP, TFTP, and SNMP and removes the necessity to develop an OS or separate protocol stack. The S1S60000 is also claimed to eliminate the need for a 32-bit CPU and additional RAM.

Operating on a 3.3V or 5V input, the 100-pin QFP device connects directly to other MPUs including the Intel x86 series, Motorola 68xx series, and the Hitachi SH line. The protocols required for TCP/IP connectivity are processed internally, requiring only simple commands to be sent from the host MPU in order to enable communication.

The standard design provides 10/100 Ethernet connectivity and provides an MII PHY interface to support networking connectivity via phone lines or power cables.

The S1S60000 features the company's C33 32-bit RISC microprocessor core, 1Mb built-in Flash, a 16-pin programmable GPIO, and I2C pins.

S1S60000 costs $9.72 each in quantities of 10,000. Evaluation boards are also available which are priced at $180 each. A PCI card for connecting the S1S60000 evaluation board to a notebook PC is also available, which is priced at $270 each.
