THE BL2600 Wolf from Dominion Electronics provides embedded system engineers a complete performance package. Two standard models - one with 10/100 Ethernet, one without - feature the Rabbit 3000 microprocessor at 44.2 and 29.4MHz respectively, with at least 512K Flash and 512K SRAM (standard).
The BL2600 is an advanced single-board computer that incorporates Flash memory, SRAM, digital I/O ports, A/D converter inputs, D/A converter outputs, RS232/RS485 serial ports, and a 10/100Base-T Ethernet port. Optional serial Flash cards are available.
The BL2600 Wolf can be connected via two mechanisms: dual entry IDC through-hole sockets allow header mounting on either side of the board, and polarised industry-standard friction-lock connectors enable rapid assembly with wire harnesses.
These connectors provide dependable cable harness connectivity to I/O. RabbitNet expansion boards will be available (including A/D, D/A, digital I/O, and keypad/display interface cards) to interface via the two multiplexed SPI RS422 ports.
Programs are developed and debugged using Z-World's Dynamic C software, which runs on a Windows PC. Interfacing from the PC hosting Dynamic C to the target BL2600 board can be accomplished by a serial cable, a USB cable, or via Ethernet.
Comprehensive debugging support includes break points, watch expressions and many other extensive features oriented toward real-time embedded systems programming.
An extensive library of drivers and sample programs is provided, including a royalty-free TCP/IP stack for network and Internet communications. Full source code is provided for most library routines.
