MiniCore™ RCM5700

MiniCore™ RCM5700

Rabbit Semiconductor and Digi-Key offer ultra-compact, pin-compatible, Ethernet control and communications solutions for embedded designs

The MiniCore™ family is Rabbit’s smallest and lowest cost embedded solution, and offers designers an easy path to adding reliable network connectivity to any designed system. The new MiniCore RCM5700 module packs a rich embedded feature set on an ultra-compact mini PCI Express form factor.

As an added benefit, the MiniCore RCM5700 offers one of the lowest profiles of any embedded solution. At only 0.11" (3 mm) in height, it delivers unprecedented flexibility to place network connectivity anywhere onto a customer-designed mother board. The RCM5700 has a Rabbit® 5000 microprocessor operating at up to 50 MHz, flash memory, two clocks (main oscillator and timekeeping), and the circuitry necessary for reset and management of battery backup of the real-time clock. An edge connector brings out the RCM5700 I/O bus lines, parallel ports, and serial ports to a 52-pin mini PCI Express socket on the motherboard the RCM5700 is mounted on.
