Saelig Introduces Low Cost, Low Power Design & Development Platforms

Models offer design shortcuts and added flexibility in embedded and network oriented applications

Pittsford, NY, USA - Saelig Company, Inc. (Saelig) ( has announced the availability of ARM7-based Model DS2148WZ and Spartan-3AN FPGA-based Model DSX50WZ, two powerful new, low-cost, low-power design and development platforms for embedded and network-oriented applications.

Model DS2148WZ combines NXP's LPC2148 ARM7 microcontroller with WIZnet's W5300 network IC, providing a tested, ready-to-implement "shortcut" within embedded design projects requiring Ethernet or USB interface. The small factor board is configurable as a highly efficient web server, without sacrificing the availability of most LPC2148 resources. The unit's on-board W5300 Ethernet Controller makes complex TCP/IP packet and web page processing functions no more challenging than working with a universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter (UART). DS2148WZ is ideal for creating a <1W internet appliance, with performance characteristics similar to traditional servers, and providing the added advantage of hardware features such as USB, PWM, UART, I2C, SPI, A/D and D/A.

Model DSX50WZ offers a pre-packaged development board which combines Xilinx's XC3S50AN Spartan-3AN FPGA and WIZnet's W5300 hardwired network protocol Ethernet (TCP/IP) controller. With ~33k available gates, Model DSX50WZ allows for fast creation of a low power networked product, capable of serving rich web pages. The compact Spartan-3 board serves web pages in less than 50ms from internal flash memory. Its accompanying demo http server runs on PicoBlaze, leaving 66% of Spartan resources still available. This small factor board may also be configured as a very efficient web server, with equivalent performance to larger, traditional servers, while still retaining availability of most XC3S50 FPGA resources.

Both models measure just 3.7" x 1.5" (94 x 38mm) and are now available, complete with software examples from Saelig, at a cost of $87 USD. For detailed specifications, free technical assistance, or additional information, please contact (toll-free in the US) 1-888-7SAELIG, via email:, or visit
