Digi International (News
) has introduced the ConnectCore 9P 9215, the industry’s most flexible ARM9-based Ethernet
Featuring two Flexible Interface Modules (FIMs) built into Digi’s new ARM9 microprocessor would allow customers to load and use application-specific interfaces such as Secure Digital, Controller Area Network (CAN), 1-Wire, additional UARTs and others.
Thanks to this, users would be able to custom configure the ConnectCore 9P 9215 for the specific needs of an application.
Adding interfaces in the FIMs reduces complexity and overall product cost by minimizing the number of components necessary for a design.
Moreover, the ConnectCore 9P 9215 also features advanced networking protocols like IPv6
, SNMPv3 and SSL., which allows customers to easily upgrade protocols over time without having to replace hardware.
“This module provides the perfect combination of flexibility and longevity,” Larry Kraft, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Digi International said in a press release. “The FIMs mean customers can adapt the module to meet their specific needs, and the advanced protocols coupled with the Digi brand mean customers can safely build it into long life cycle products.”
The company claims ConnectCore 9P 9215 to be the only Ethernet networking module to offer on-chip AES
encryption for secure fast network communications. It provides 10 times the secure data throughput of comparable software-based solutions.
Additionally, it features low power consumption and advanced power management features including Digi patented switchable processor speed. Digi’s switchable processor speed allows customers to change processor speed from an application or shut down selected features to reduce power use. This makes the ConnectCore 9P 9215 ideal for portable/mobile devices.
Digi International, the leader in device networking for business, develops reliable products and technologies to connect and securely manage local or remote electronic devices over the network or via the web. Digi offers the highest levels of performance, flexibility and quality, and markets its products through a global network of distributors and resellers, systems integrators and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
