Send email, generate custom web pages, send and receive network data.

The goal: Quickly create a finished product that can be controlled, configured, and monitored using Ethernet.​

The method: Add additional functionality with a pre-built add-on board, or create your own custom board. the add-on boards are installed inside the PK70 EX enclosure.​

The result: Access device from the Internet or a local area network (LAN)​

NetBurner has traditionally offered CPU processor boards that provide easy access via header pins to the general purpose processor and digital I/O. These “core modules” include ram, flash, 10/100 Ethernet and can be programmed using our software tools suite. To use it you have to build a board to plug into and a case to go over it. We have also offered serial to ethernet devices in a finished box all ready to go to deploy as a finished product. We kept getting requests to add features to the box or a box to the processor boards.

The solution is the Network Product Kit – it combines the best of both worlds!

The Network Product Kit combines the design of a finished product, the flexibility of a network module, and the power of the NetBurner development suite into a ready to use platform for use in both prototype or production. The primary advantage of the Network Product Kit is that the electronics are in a professional grade enclosure with a power supply.

The most exciting feature is the Add-on board slot. You can use one of our standard Add-on Boards or create your own.

Just insert the card, add the case, write your software, and you have a finished product!

How to affordably deploy network attached devices in the real world

If you have a network attached widget you want to put out into the world you will soon discover that deploying it is not as simple as you might think. You will discover that every business has a different standard or setup of how to setup the network. If individual deployment/installation requires a skilled technician to install and debug, this will severely limit your market penetration.
