Velocity Semiconductor Inc. has announced the availability of the first members of its VS2000 Typhoon Core Module (TCM) family that supports a variety of network interfaces. Powered by the company's VS2000 RISC microcontroller, the 32-bit computing modules enable the development and deployment of systems requiring control and Ethernet connectivity. The modules' VS2000 operates at 44MHz and includes a 10/100 integrated Ethernet MAC with DMA controller and a rich set of on-chip peripherals.

All modules provide 52 digital IOs, 512K x 8 Flash memory (90ns), 512K x 8 high-speed SRAM (15ns), two RS-232 ports, two SPI ports, four timers/counters, and status and link status LEDs. The VS2000TCM-ETH1 is equipped with a single RJ45 connector, while the VS2000TCM-ETH2 provides dual RJ45 connectors and is aimed at applications that require multi-network access or inter-network routing such as facsimile or printer terminals. The VS2000TCM-USB includes one RJ45 connector and one USB 1.1 host or slave port, while the VS2000TCM-WLAN provides a standard CompactFlash interface.

The VS2000TCM-ETH1 is available for $69, the VS2000TCM-ETH2 for $89, and and VS2000TCM-USB for $89, all in 100-unit quantities. The VS2000 Evaluation Kit (VS2000EVB) is also available and is priced at $399. The evaluation kit contains an evaluation board, software development kit including RTOS, ANSI C, TCP/IP stack and Java-compatible libraries, quick start guide, comprehensive documentation, serial cables, and worldwide-compatible power supply.

Scott A. Avery, VP of Marketing and Business Development, said, "These modules essentially make TCP/IP an off-the-shelf product which will substantially reduce design cycles and cost. Velocity has now introduced one of the most complete module product offerings in the industry."
