Cypherbridge, a California based micro-board vendor, and Nabto, a Danish software firm, announced a
new web-server module, the Nabto uServer module at ESC Boston 2010.
The Microchip PIC18F66J60-based module enables companies to design and test out web-based systems such as remote medical, industrial and consumer applications.
64kb flash for code, 16 kb reserved for uNabto software
48kb for embedded logic
3808 bytes of RAM, 512 reserved for uNabto software
2808 bytes available for embedded logic
8-bit Microchip PIC18F66J60 controller
Enhanced UART modules supports:
RS-485, RS-232 and LIN 1.2
10-bit A/D converter 11 channels
RJ-45 Ethernet connector
Supports iPhone, Android and Windows Mobile smart phones
Windows 7, XP; Apple MacOSX, Ubuntu and RedHat Linux.
Carsten Gregersen, CEO and founder of
Nabto, said the board aims to deliver HTML on a chip with small memory footprint, security and low cost.
“When you are targeting home weather-station applications and so on, you need to get the cost down,” he said, in an interview.
They chose the Microchip part because it integrates the Ethernet phy directly on chip.
Steve Delaney, founder and president of Cypherbridge, described the module as a quick-start approach to building web-enabled applications.
“It makes sense for up to 10,000 units, and then a customer would migrate to subsuming the Nabto software into their board’s main system controller at that part,” he said.
Using an FPGA to test out Internet applications is too costly and time-consuming, he added.
Gregersen and Delaney struck up a relationship when they met at ESC Silicon Valley earlier this year.
Pricing: $17 for 1-9 boards, scaling to $9.50 for orders of more than 1,000.
Availability: Now through Cypherbridge.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
