The day has finally come to announce the release of our most advanced and asked for product… the NetBurner ARM® Cortex®-Powered System on Module. The all new NetBurner MODM7AE70 is designed for use as a high-performance single-board computer or to add Ethernet connectivity to a new or existing design. It can be designed into a product or used for a variety of automation and web applications in IoT, IIoT (Industrial IoT), Edge or Fog Computing, and device networking.
Embedded transcendence combined with a culture of perfectionism can lead to just a “few” delays and do we apologize to those who have been waiting. Like slow-cooked food or a properly cured concrete foundation, we know the time spent will be well worth it!
“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” — Leo Tolstoy
We also wouldn’t dream of embarking on this journey without making sure that all of the support and tools you need to make your projects a complete success were engineered, tailored and tested. NetBurner 3.0 provides all the development tools, system libraries, and custom built, highly optimized RTOS you’ll need to hit the ground running with our newest and existing products.
MODM7AE70 Product Summary:
NetBurner’s new ARM Embedded System on Module is our answer to your call for an ARM® Cortex®-Powered processor for your next masterpiece. The all-new NetBurner ARM® Cortex®-Powered System on Module is here to accelerate and de-risk your product development path for serious IoT and embedded applications!
The NetBurner ARM® Cortex®-Powered System on Module follows in the footsteps of our other easy to use, fast and highly reliable Ethernet System on Modules. In contrast, it features a powerful Microchip®/Atmel® SAM E70 32-bit ARM Cortex-M7 embedded processor SoC (System On a Chip) rather than our standard NPX/Freescale® ColdFire® processors. It also offers a galaxy of brilliant features like a preloaded super-optimized Real-Time Operating System (RTOS), high-speed serial peripherals, data converters and I/O, 10/100 MBPS Ethernet, real-time clocks and timers, and even DSP and image processing.
Our modules quickly and reliably network-enable your products and components. The module can function as a modern and robust web server that supports communications via HTTPS via SSL/TLS, a host of industrial automation protocols, serial (RS-232/485), I2C, SPI and more. NetBurner’s new ARM® Cortex®-Powered System on Module provides a spectrum of support for IoT applications in sensor fusion, industrial automation, robotics, audio processing, image and video processing, and automotive.
