Ethernet microcontroller now supported by µC/OS-II Board Support Package
Renesas and its alliance partner Embedded Office have announced the immediate availability of a µC/OS-II Board Support Package (BSP) for the M3A-HS19G59 board. The board is based on the SH7619 device that features Ethernet MAC&PHY and a 160 DMIPS SH2 RISC CPU core, as well as many other peripherals. The device is comparable in cost to an Ethernet NIC with PHY and so offers the CPU and peripherals ‘for free’, in comparison.
Forwarding CAN data via Ethernet
CAN-based networks require special cable connections. Special adapters are also required for the purpose of integrating PCs. This can sometimes incur considerable costs. To solve this problem, Kanda is offering CAN2LAN router software for the SSV embedded devices server modules, making it possible to transfer any kind of data over TCP/IP-based Ethernet LANs in a transparent way. The CAN2LAN solution involves the interconnection of two CAN netw...
