Developer's kit for Linux

5 November 2003 DSP, Micros & Memory

The UNC20 Developer's Kit for Linux includes a UNC20 module, a baseboard with schematics, and LxNET ES for ARM7 processors. This developer's kit is offered by FS Forthe Systeme. LxNET ES includes an Embedded Linux based on uClinux, a Linux developed specifically for processors without memory management units. All software is ported to the UNC20 module and is ready to begin software development. Also included is a complete GNU toolchain including C and C++ compilers, debugger, and DDD graphical user interface

A unique feature of the UNC20 Developer's Kit is the parallel port JTAG (PPJ) that is built directly on the development baseboard. Using the PPJ, developers can debug and reprogram flash memory by using a PC parallel port.

The UNC20 microcontroller module combines a 32 bit RISC processor, 16-MB SDRAM, up to 8 MB flash memory, and Ethernet MAC and PHY in a compact 48-pin DIP package. The microcontroller on the UNC20 is NetSilicon's NS7520, which is a 32-bit microprocessor specifically designed for use in intelligent networked devices and Internet appliances. The NS7520 includes a 32 bit RISC ARM7TDMI core, 10/100BaseT Ethernet MAC, and two independent serial ports.

The UNC20 eliminates complexity of network-enabled embedded designs. It provides the ability to design Ethernet connectivity into products in a much shorter time and at reduced cost and risk. All complex, fine-pitch, multilayer, BGA technology is on the UNC20, and the custom baseboard can be a simple 2-layer PCB with application-specific I/O, power, and a 48 pin DIP socket for the UNC20.
