Multi-Tech Announces Efficient Embedded Ethernet Module

New SocketEthernet IP Provides Cost-Effective Device Server Functions

MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 26 -- Multi-Tech(R) Systems, Inc., a leading data communications and telecommunications technology company based in suburban Minneapolis, announces a new embedded serial-to-Ethernet module designed to connect devices to an IP (Internet Protocol) network. The new SocketEthernet IP(R) embedded serial-to-Ethernet device server includes a flexible IP protocol stack for enabling communications to networks such as the Internet and is part of the company's Universal Socket Connectivity family that shares a common design footprint and pin assignments. The SocketEthernet IP (model MT100SEM) contains features selected specifically for implementing the most common applications, so it can be cost-effectively priced while still offering the highest quality component standards.

"Our new SocketEthernet IP module provides a fast and efficient means for designers to add Ethernet connectivity to IP networks," states Chip Harleman, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. "The SocketEthernet IP module can shorten the time to market and save on design resources by providing all that is necessary for an Ethernet network interface in one small convenient package. This new SocketEthernet IP module is part of a much larger family of embedded solutions that creates communication-ready devices by integrating connectivity into a single universal socket design. The Universal Socket Connectivity family of products adds remote monitoring, diagnostics, data collection or virtually any communications ability to existing designs or new devices with interchangeable modules. This new Ethernet module is designed to accommodate the most typical set of requirements we see when Ethernet is added to a design. By keeping the feature set focused on the most frequently used capabilities we have been able to produce a more cost-effective product that helps keep costs down while still providing the highest quality in design and production. We believe this will be a popular and productive member of our growing Universal Socket Connectivity family."
