Micro/sys Announces Powerful Low-Cost Industrial Microcontroller
with Web Server, Networking, plus Analog and Digital I/O
Update your aging PC/104 stack with this sleek new single board controller featuring CAN, Ethernet, and USB Connectivity
May 12, 2014
Montrose, CA... Micro/sys recently released a low power microcontroller board with fully integrated web hosting, networking, and analog I/O on a PC/104 form factor (3.775" x 3.55"). Featuring Microchip's 80MHz PIC32 microcontroller, the USB3032 is an ideal COTS solution for applications requiring low power and extended temperature operation. PIC32's easy-to-use and solidly supported software tools and stacks combined with Micro/sys' 10-year lifecycle support and OEM pricing allows designers to maximize productivity and shorten time-to-market while keeping overall system development and production costs low.
Powered by the PIC32 microcontroller, USB3032 provides 125 DMIPS performance while consuming under 100mA of power. Power is a standard 5V input or can be battery backed with 6V to 36V input. Onboard serial interfaces include (2) RS232/RS485 ports, (1) USB2.0 Host or Client port, (1) I2C port, (1) SPI port, (1) 10/100 Ethernet port and (1) CAN2.0 port. A standard 82C55 device implements 24 digital I/O lines with TTL voltage levels. Available analog features include 12 channels of 12-bit A/D that performs simultaneous conversions in 6usec with -10V to +10V DC range and 4 channels of 12, 14 or 16-bit D/A with a -10V to +10V DC output range. Additional features giving designers the tools they need to accurately monitor and control their system include an onboard 256Kbit Serial Eeprom, three timers, one programmable LED, a battery-backed real-time clock, a watchdog timer, and an onboard digital thermostat. To improve performance of all the on-board features, USB3032's integrated memory of 128KB RAM and 512KB flash allows multiple software stacks to run at once. USB3032 is RoHS compliant. USB3032 gives designers a powerful controller that is able to share and react to information sent by users at every stage of a user's production, security monitoring, data logging or test and measurement application. To ease networking interfacing, for example, USB3032 offers designers mix-and-match protocol conversion with limitless combinations, including Ethernet to CAN, CAN to USB, USB to RS232 or any other desirable combination. Designers can use USB3032's 10/100 Mbps Ethernet to create and monitor a sophisticated IT infrastructure with a server-based Intranet while tasking the USB3032 with controlling multiple D/A, A/D or I/O functions. USB3032 gets all this done by storing up to 1024 messages in 32 buffers while offering user-selectable filter-to-buffer mapping with 32 filters and 4 filter masks. For maximum data processing over Ethernet and CAN, USB3032 offers a built-in DMA interface.
For applications requiring additional I/O expansion, USB3032 can easily and cost-effectively be expanded by stacking up to ten StackableUSB™ client-side industrial I/O boards.
The rugged, industrial grade USB3032 starts at $135 in singe quantity. Turn-key development kits are available for $495 with sample software and an extensive tool base allowing immediate out-of -box development. Significant OEM discounts available. All products are manufactured in the United States.
