Saelig Intros Low Cost, Low Power Network Design Platforms
Ethernet design platform.
Pittsford, NY — Saelig Company, Inc. has introduced ARM7-based Model DS2148WZ and Spartan-3AN FPGA-based Model DSX50WZ — two powerful new, low-cost, low-power design and development platforms for embedded and network-oriented applications.

The Model DS2148WZ combines NXP's LPC2148 ARM7 microcontroller with WIZnet's W5300 network IC, providing a tested, ready-to-implement "shortcut" within embedded design projects requiring Ethernet or USB interface. The small factor board is configurable as a highly efficient web server, without sacrificing the availability of most LPC2148 resources. The unit's on-board W5300 Ethernet Controller makes complex TCP/IP packet and web page processing functions no more challenging than working with a universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter (UART).

The new product is suitable for creating a <1W internet appliance, with performance characteristics similar to traditional servers, and providing the added advantage of hardware features such as USB, PWM, UART, I2C, SPI, A/D and D/A.

Another product, the Model DSX50WZ, offers a pre-packaged development board which combines Xilinx's XC3S50AN Spartan-3AN FPGA and WIZnet's W5300 hardwired network protocol Ethernet (TCP/IP) controller. With about 33k available gates, Model DSX50WZ allows for fast creation of a low power networked product, capable of serving rich web pages. The compact Spartan-3 board serves web pages in less than 50ms from internal flash memory. Its accompanying demo http server runs on PicoBlaze, leaving 66 percent of Spartan resources still available. This small factor board may also be configured as a very efficient web server, with equivalent performance to larger, traditional servers, while still retaining availability of most XC3S50 FPGA resources.

Both models measure just 3.7 x 1.5-in. (94 x 38mm) and are now available, complete with software examples from the company.
