Sockets can operate over the WinSystems SBC's Ethernet port or via the RS-232 ports using SLIP or using PPP and a modem. This hardware/software combination is targeted for the telecommunication, data communication, and information appliance markets where small size and an extended operating temperature range are important.
Embedded Internet Solutions with Sockets
Sockets is a suite of tools designed to Internet-enable embedded devices. It includes a compact TCP/IP stack and a complete set of applications that are designed to address real-world embedded Internet challenges. These applications include FTP server and client, for custom network communication; HTTP server and client, for remote disk updating and tile sharing; e-mail, for immediate notification and reporting; terminal emulation. for legacy terminal replacement: and print, for instant access reporting.
WinSystems' PCI104-Plus Single Board Computers
WinSystems' new PPM-TX and PPM-520 PC/104-Plus single board computers are low-cost, small form-factor, x86-compatible modules with integrated Ethernet connectivity. The processors offered are either an AMD-520 or low-power Intel(R) Pentium(R) 166/266 with 10/100 Ethernet controller, 4 COM channels and other standard I/O controllers. The SBCs measure only 3.6" x 3.8" (90mm x 96mm) and will operate from -40deg to +85deg Celsius. They are targeted for space- and power-limited embedded designs that also need network access.
