Digi International introduce the ConnectCore 9M 2443 and ConnectCore Wi-9M 2443, the ARM9-based, network enabled embedded core modules. The ConnectCore 9M 2443 and ConnectCore Wi-9M 2443 modules are available from Dominion Electronics .
The ConnectCore 9M 2443 and ConnectCore Wi-9M 2443 modules support both Windows CE and Linux operating systems. The pin-compatible wired and 802.11a/b/g core modules feature peripherals, rich development resources and speed making the products suitable for display and embedded multimedia applications. This includes embedded applications in networked displays, medical devices, building access controls, energy management devices, time and attendance devices, scales and other devices with multimedia or display technology.
According to Larry Kraft, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Digi International the ConnectCore 9M 2443 series is 33% faster than any other ARM9-based core module. This level of speed can reduce development time by allowing engineers to reuse existing ARM9 code in wired and wireless applications that require high levels of speed and support.
The ConnectCore 9M 2443 and ConnectCore Wi-9M 2443 modules feature a multilayered memory bus architecture that allows simultaneous data transfer between processor, memory and peripherals. This multilayered memory bus architecture eliminates the traditional bus bandwidth bottlenecks that are common on other platforms. For example, updating graphical information through the LCD controller and retrieving data from memory at the same time can now be realised without compromising overall performance and user experience.
The ConnectCore 9M 2443 and ConnectCore Wi-9M 2443 modules also feature a full set of peripheral and multimedia connectivity options including an integrated LCD controller, USB 2.0 support and support for SD Memory cards. This allows embedded developers to support the latest peripherals in their products.
Additionally, the modules feature off-the-shelf hardware and software support for all power management modes making the modules suitable for low power and battery powered/mobile applications. The ConnectCore 9M 2443 module is tested and CE certified, and the ConnectCore Wi-9M 2443 module will be certified upon availability.
