DIL/NetPC PNP/5280: Starter Kit DNP/SK20

The DIL/NetPC PNP/5280 Embedded Linux Starter Kit DNP/SK20 contains everything you need to get started with your Motorola MCF528x ColdFire- and Linux-based embedded networking application. The starter kit includes a PNP/5280 module with a pre-installed embedded Linux (uClinux), the evaluation board DNP/EVA8, 110 VAC - 230 VAC international power supply, serial interface (nullmodem) cable, one CD-ROM with software and documentation and a printed user manual for the first steps with the starter kit.


The starter kit CD-ROM comes with a full GNU cross tool chain for C/C++ software development. This binary files of this tool chain runs on a x86 Linux-based host (SuSE, Red Hat or other) and builds bFLT (uClinux Binary Flat Format) binary files for the Motorola MCF528x ColdFire 32-bit RISC microcontroller.

For using the DIL/NetPC PNP/5280 Embedded Linux Starter Kit you need a development system. The minimal configuration for this system is a Windows- based PC with the HyperTerminal terminal emulation program and a free COM port (COM1, COM2 or USB-based COMx) for the RS232 serial link between the DIL/NetPC PNP/5280 and HyperTerminal. For using the Ethernet link, your PC needs an Ethernet adapter with 10 Mbps or 10/100 Mbps LAN interface. This environment allows web server programming (HTML pages, Java Applets) and Linux shell script programming. For using the GNU C/C++ cross tool chain, it is necessary to run Linux on the development system.

DIL/NetPC PNP/5280: Starter Kit Key Features

The DIL/NetPC PNP/5280 pre-installed embedded Linux consists of two main components: 1. the Linux kernel and 2. the root filesystem. The PNP/5280 FLASH also offers a FLASH Loader for downloading new Versions of the Linux kernel and the root file system. This in-system programming feature can be used over a simple serial and Ethernet link between the development system and the DNP/5280.
