SBCs for Embedded Networking: DIL/NetPC DNP/5280

The DIL/NetPC DNP/5280 provides a very compact ColdFire-based low power embedded controller (Motorola 32-bit MCF528x) with TCP/IP stack and web server for high-speed embedded networking applications. The DIL/NetPC offers the footprint of a standard 64-pin DIL socket with 2.54mm centers and all the hardware and software features necessary to add high-speed networking capabilities to any product design. The DIL/NetPC is developed specifically for products that need to be connected to 10 or 100 Mbps Ethernet-based TCP/IP networks with minimum development costs.

DIL/NetPC DNP/5280

The DNP/5280 is a ready-to-run full programmable 32-bit embedded networking system. The use of the DNP/5280 will allow you to realize substantial time and costs savings over other chip-based approaches. Currently, there is no other 10/100 Mbps Ethernet- and TCP/IP-based embedded networking solution with more development time savings on the market. There is also no faster Time-to-Market for your product with lower costs if 32-bit-based 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, full TCP/IP and an embedded Web server or other TCP/IP-based server software is required.


To interface the DNP/5280 with existing devices and equipment, the DNP/5280 offers two asynchronous serial RS232C interfaces with TTL levels and handshake signals, I2C interchip bus interface, queued SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface), CAN interface with support for the CAN protocol specification 2.0B, 20-bit general purpose high-speed parallel I/Os and a 8-bit extension bus with interrupt inputs and chip select outputs. There are two ways for DNP/5280 integration: 1. Adapt the DNP/5280 to your existing product. Use the existing I/Os within your product to communicate with the DNP/5280. 2. Use the DNP/5280 to control and monitor the hardware of your existing product. This might enable you to replace your existing controller entirely. In a new product design, the DNP/5280 can be the main controller. Additional I/Os are driven by the 8-bit extension bus.

The on-board FLASH memory provides storage for the DNP/5280 operating system with TCP/IP stack and embedded web server as well as OEM applications and data. The FLASH memory is in-system programmable over Motorola BDM, serial and the Ethernet interface. The boot block of the FLASH memory is only in-system programmable over the Motorola BDM interface through a special adapter cable attached to a PC parallel port. For all other FLASH blocks, you can use also a high-speed serial connection through the DNP/5280 COM1 port or the 10/100 Mbps Ethernet interface for in-system programming. The DNP/5280 in-system programming was developed for OEM application software, operating system downloads and data download and to make it easier to update the on-board FLASH content in the field.
