Simple Sensor Application Kit


Rabbit Semiconductor and Digi-Key introduce the model RCM4300 Sensor Kit


Simple Sensor Application Kit The Simple Sensor Application Kit provides an ideal design reference to interface a Rabbit-based system to a Maxim-Dallas 1-Wire® bus. The kit provides sample applications based on four 1-Wire devices to help users better understand and implement a 1-Wire bus using a prototyping board and a RabbitCore® RCM4300 module. The Simple Sensor Kit is the ideal reference on how to interface any 1-Wire device to any Rabbit® module or processor. The 1-Wire interface is still widely used and is best suited where ZigBee networks are not reliable due to environmental constraints or if the distance between two points is very short.

Using the Dynamic C® integrated development environment and RabbitWeb, designers can create HTML forms for web pages that interface with C variables in embedded networked applications. The capability can reduce weeks or months of complex Common Gate Interface (CGI) programming down to hours and eliminate all of the C programming involved in parsing HTML form input and generating HTML pages based on program variables.
