Handling serial data streams is our bread and butter. In a majority of cases, NetBurner’s serial device platforms are ready for your Serial-to-Ethernet applications right out-of-the-box; however, in applications that require precision serial data timing, additional processing may be needed. In this article, we’ll show you an implementation of callback functions to handle these scenarios.
The MOD5441X family of Single and Dual Ethernet Core Modules provide an incredible amount of capability, versatility, and reliability in a small form-factor and price. The MOD5441X allows you to add Ethernet connectivity to an existing device and even use it as your device’s embedded core processor.
At NetBurner, we make networking easy. That’s why we’re proud to introduce our newest Serial to Ethernet Server, the amazingly powerful, versatile and portable SB800
Stack overflows can be one of the most difficult bugs to squash. An overflow is often hidden in a cryptic, non-static error state. Sometimes the application runs without issue. Sometimes it may hard fault and reset the hardware without warning. It may be overwriting data unbeknown to application designer. The worst error state is the dreaded heisenbug: an error that seems to vanish when you go looking for the cause.
One of the toughest challenges faced in today’s evolving market is communicating with legacy I2C and serial devices. To satisfy this need, NetBurner has added I2C-to-Ethernet support to the SB70LC’s serial to Ethernet factory application.
For those new to NetBurner, we provide a single source of hardware, software, development tools and technical support for all your network-enabled embedded system needs. NetBurner is dedicated to supporting the product and service needs of our customers.

SniPCAP is improved and now streaming!
As it was mentioned in the first article, SniPCAP had a lot of room to improve on. The following lists the basic functionalities of SniPCAP:
- audit information
- monitor bandwidth usage
- diagnose problems or bottlenecks in the network
- discover devices on the network
- detect network intrusion through packet analysis
- convert network traffic into a user readable format
- log traffic
The previous version of SniPCAP was only a minimum product that temporarily captured a small amount of data; increased scalability and better usability was a necessity (more details on the first part of this project could be found here). This article shows the development of a more scalable product on the NetBurner Module.
