First member of a new family of NET+ARM 32-bit microprocessors from NetSilicon Inc ., a division of Digi International, was announced at Embedded Systems Conference Boston . Named NS9750, the microprocessor is based on an ARM 9 core (926EJ-S) to enable the highest performance and integration for networking of embedded devices, according to NetSilicon.
NS9750’s 32-bit processor operates at speeds up to 200 MHz and focuses on flexible connectivity by integrating a variety of industry-standard peripherals, such as PCI, USB (host or device), I
The microprocessor provides wire-speed, full duplex 10/100Base-T Ethernet, with processing performance and bandwidth to handle the most sophisticated embedded applications. NS9750 is supported by NetSilicon’s royalty-free NET+Works software development tool suite and networking software. The software tool is said to help users achieve faster time-to-market, lower unit costs, save engineering resources, and reduce design risk.
“NS9750, with its high degree of performance and integration, will enable device manufacturers to easily include both their application and device networking using this single processor, thereby reducing the overall cost of their networked devices,” says Bruce Berger, senior VP and general manager of NetSilicon.
