Austin, TX; Jacksonville, FL— CMX Systems Cygnal Integrated Products ed to provide internetworking connectivity tools to designers working with eight-bit processors.

CMX designs real-time operating systems and TCP/IP software. Cygnal manufactures advanced mixed-signal microcontrollers.

Cygnal’s C8051F12X series combines a 50-MIPS processor, 128-K Flash memory, 8-K RAM, and 12-bit analog in an eight-bit microcontroller. With the addition of TCP/IP support, these devices provide a web server platform for many industrial and commercial applications.

“We’re very pleased that Cygnal selected CMX-MicroNet as a networking tool for the C8051F12X family,” says Chuck Behrmann, CMX’s president and ceo. “Cygnal and CMX can now offer their customers an unmatched combination of price and performance, and this powerful combination of hardware and software will be able to work `out of the box’ for embedded systems developers.”

Jim Divine, Cygnal’s business development director, adds that, “The performance of the C8051F124 has made it extremely popular for embedded web server applications. The combination of the CMX-MicroNet stack and the C8051F124 will enable systems designers to deploy robust network-enabled products very rapidly.”

The product includes a development kit, AB2 Ethernet Prototyping Board, and supporting documentation and software. Complete documentation, schematics and software are available at Cygnal’s web site at .
