Sneak Peek from the NetBurner Product Nebula – The Birthplace of Stars


We read you loud and clear! NetBurner’s new Embedded Core Module is our answer to your call for an ARM® Cortex®-Powered processor for your next masterpiece. We can hardly contain ourselves so we’re providing a preview before we Supernova! The all-new NetBurner ARM® Cortex®-Powered Core Module is here to accelerate and de-risk your product development path for serious IoT and embedded applications!

The NetBurner ARM® Cortex®-Powered Core Module follows in the footsteps of our other fast and highly reliable Ethernet Core 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 NPX/Freescale® ColdFire® processors. It also offers a galaxy of brilliant features like a preloaded Real-Time OS (RTOS), high-speed serial peripherals, data converters and I/O, 10/100 MBPS Ethernet, real-time clocks and timers.

Our core modules quickly and reliably Ethernet-enable and network your products and components. The Core Module can function as a modern and robust web server that supports communications via HTTPS/SSL/SSH, a host of industrial automation protocols, serial, I2C, SPI and more. NetBurner’s new ARM® Cortex®-Powered Core Module provides a spectrum of support for IoT applications in sensor fusion, industrial automation, robotics, audio processing, image and video processing, and automotive.
