OC-8 embedded controllers

From Open Controller comes the OC-8 series of embedded controllers that simplify the connection of machines, devices and systems in a network for real time communication and interaction.

The pin- and function-compatible modules can be used in a variety of applications and Open Controller provides a complete tool chain, source code and examples to accelerate the implementation.

The modules are equipped with a ARM7 or ARM9 (400MHz) microcontroller, are provided with PoE and the most common communication channels such as high-speed serial (12Mbit), I?C, SPI, SSC, CAN, ADC, DAC, LCD, CCD, AC'97, 4-20mA controller, Ethernet and wireless.

The modules, which are compared to the size of a sugar cube, support a variety of protocols including CAN Open, Profibus, Modbus and Powerlink.

The devices are based on certified open source software ensuring control over the solution and avoid a 'vendor lock-in'.
