RCM3000 Series - Development Kit
RabbitCore Models RCM3000, RCM3010
The RCM3000 RabbitCore is Z-World's most powerful and feature-packed microprocessor core module. Powered by the new Rabbit 3000, the "EMI-Free microprocessor" the RCM3000 is the ideal option for designers who want to rapidly develop and implement embedded systems with fully integrated Ethernet connectivity.
Measuring only 2.73" x 1.85" (69 x 47 mm), the RCM3000 operates at 3.3 V (with 5 V-tolerant I/O) and features 6 serial ports. Built-in low-EMI features, including a clock spectrum spreader, help designers eliminate the kind of emissions-related problems that frequently derail tight development schedules.
Available in two models, the RCM3000 is equipped with 10Base-T Ethernet, up to 512K each of Flash and SRAM, quadrature encoder inputs, PWM outputs, and pulse capture and measurement capabilities. Two 34-pin connection headers provide 52 digital I/O shared with the 6 serial ports and alternate I/O features. The integrated Ethernet port allows instant local or worldwide connectivity. (The RCM3000 is pin compatible with the non-Ethernet RCM3100, facilitating cost-effective implementation of both Ethernet and non-Ethernet systems).
The RCM3000 features a battery-backable real-time clock, glueless memory and I/O interfacing, and ultra-low power "sleepy" modes. A fully enabled slave port permits easy master-slave interfacing with another processor-based system, and an alternate I/O bus can be configured for 8 data lines and 6 address lines (shared with parallel I/O). The Rabbit 3000 processor's compact, C-friendly instruction set and high clock speeds produce exceptionally fast results for math, logic, and I/O.
Designing with RabbitCores The RabbitCore family of microprocessor core modules is designed to facilitate rapid development and implementation of embedded systems. RabbitCores are powered by high-performance 8-bit Rabbit microprocessors with extensive integrated features and a C-friendly instruction set designed for use with the Dynamic C® development system. The RabbitCore mounts on a user-designed motherboard and acts as the controlling microprocessor for the user's system. Small in size but packed with powerful features, these core modules give designers a complete package for control and communication. The integrated Ethernet port frees designers from the limitations of serial-port communications and control and permits instant local or worldwide connectivity using low-cost networking hardware. Embedded systems using the Ethernet RabbitCore module can be controlled and monitored (as well as programmed and debugged when using appropriate accessory hardware) across any network or the Internet.
Programming the RCM3000 Programs are developed using our industry-proven Dynamic C software development system (SE version included in low-cost development kits). An extensive library of drivers and sample programs is provided, along with royalty-free TCP/IP stack with source.
