NMW 2003: Digi provides customizable network connectivity

Chicago, IL—Digi Connect 50 device server, exhibited by Digi International Inc. (Minnetonka, MN) at National Manufacturing Week 2003, uses the NET +50 NetSilicon processor to provide complete external network connectivity that can be customized for specific applications.


Chicago, IL— Digi Connect 50 device server, exhibited by Digi International Inc. ation of a processor-based solution by having development of the software application extendable across all box-board-chip solutions.

Connect 50 also has a full Board Support Package (BSP) integrated into the NetOS, which eliminates the time required for hardware code writing, and allows users to focus on building their firmware. Digi says these capabilities make Connect 50 idea for creating embedded custom applications residing on the device server, as well as applications needing network access to enable remote services.

Digi adds that Connect 50's other benefits include:

  • Improved time-to-market with a complete hardware and software platform;

  • Reduced product unit costs with complete system-on-chip and a royalty-free operating system;

  • Saved engineering resources because no specialized networking development is required;

  • Reduced design risk due to its fully integrated and tested solution;

  • Software compatibility across product line to ease future migration; and

  • Support by complete, production-ready networking software, royalty-free NET +OS, real-time operating system, and comprehensive development tools.
