Connect One's II-EVB-600 evaluation board assists designers in programming the iChip CO2064, the company's IP controller for machine-to-machine (M2M) applications that require security
The II-EVB-600 supports many upper layer Internet protocols using either AT+i commands or the iChipConfig Utility, and can be used for evaluation and development of secure WiFi, LAN, cellular or dial-up networking.
The II-EVB-600 facilitates the CO2064 iChip's tight memory management. To minimize footprint, CO2064 iChip offers 256 kBytes of memory, enough to run all networking stacks. It does not need dedicated flash while using the available system flash for storing the device firmware.
The chip's open architecture lets developers choose the Internet protocols required for their applications.
The initial firmware, which is locally updateable firmware, supports via several flavors up to 10 simultaneous TCP/UDP sockets or secure sockets (SSL3/TLS1); two listen sockets; HTTP/HTTPS, SMTP, FTP/FTPS and TELNET clients; and SerialNET serial-to-IP bridging, HTTP (Web) server, MIME attachments, POP3 client and RAS.
Future versions will support remotely updateable firmware.
Complementing the two iChipSec CO2064 chips included for prototyping, the RoHS-compliant II-EVB-600 offers two USB host and device connectors, two male-female RS-232 DB-9 connectors, RJ-45 connector, RJ-11 connector, SocketModem, WiFi daughter board with antenna, 4-pin TWI connector, two 6-pin SPI connectors and SIM holder with either 110- or 220-V power supply. LEDs provide valuable feedback. Serial cables are included.
The data sheet, product brief, presentation, LAN reference design, and EVB user manual for the CO2064 can be downloaded from www.connectone.com. The II-EVB-600 for secure WiFi, LAN, cellular or dial-up access costs $575.
