Rabbit SBC BL4S200 Series Single-Board Computer Rabbit’s BL4S200 series of single-board computers deliver the features and wireless connectivity to support networking for industrial control applications. Overview The Rabbit BL4S200 single-board computers (SBCs) offer a full-featured control and communications solution for industrial applications. The BL4S200 series is designed to provide the microprocessor control and I/O used for reading instruments, timing events precisely, controlling motors, relays and solenoids. Application Highlight Why SBCs Are Important Rabbit combines its legendary ease of use with cost-competitive hardware and software to make designing embedded applications straightforward. Rabbit’s flexible platform gives customers the ability to choose the right product for their application, while reducing effort and cost. Many customers take advantage of Rabbit SBCs to get their product to market quickly and reliably. Further value is added by allowing migration paths to either RabbitCore® modules or the chip level solution, while keeping the same Dynamic C® software development environment. Possible Applications: wireless industrial control, automatic meter reading, encrypted connectivity, data logging Features/Benefits Starter Package • Uses Rabbit® 4000 and Rabbit 5000 microprocessors The affordable BL4S200 • Choice of Wi-Fi, ZigBee or Ethernet connectivity series starter package • 40 digital I/O and up to 5 serial ports includes all the tools • 8 input and 2 output analog channels you need to develop and debug a design. • Advanced I/O subsystem is software configurable reducing the load on the processor F R O M • I/O features include event/capture counting, quadrature decoders, PWMs and PPMs 328 $ www.digi.com The Rabbit RIO® Advantage Development and Evaluation Tools The BL4S200 series uses our Rabbit RIO chip to add a powerful I/O subsystem. The on-board Rabbit RIO devices add software configurable counter/timer blocks that can perform a variety of usefulI/O capability, including event capture/counting, quadrature decoding, PWM and PPM generation, and edge or level based interrupts. This subsystem capability delivered by the Rabbit RIO device frees the microprocessor for control, data processing and communications tasks. Each BL4S200 board has 24 counter/ timer blocks available in the I/O subsystem. The BL4S200 Tool Kit contains the essential hardware to develop an embedded application on a SBC BL4S200 and debug right on the target hardware. RabbitNet™ Compatible RabbitNet expansion ports enable a modular and expandable embedded control system whose configuration of expansion cards can be tailored to a large variety of demanding real-time control, display and data-acquisition applications. A typical RabbitNet system consists of a master SBC and one or more peripheral cards.

Dynamic C includes the popular μC/OS-II real-time operating system, point-to-point protocol (PPP), FAT file system, RabbitWeb™, and other select libraries. Connect the BL4S200 board to the PC using a USB cable and then debug using break points, watch expressions and other features oriented toward real-time embedded systems programming. An extensive library of drivers and sample programs is provided, including a royalty-free TCP/IP stack for network and Internet communications. Full source code is provided for most library routines. Additional tools and parts are available to support engineers building their own wiring assemblies with the friction-lock connectors. • Connector Cable Assemblies (Part No.151-0153)—Two 2 × 5 friction-lock connectors (3 mm pitch) with harness. • Crimp tool (Part No. 998-0013) to secure wire in crimp terminals. Available for purchase is the Rabbit Embedded Security Pack featuring the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) library. In addition to the Web-based technical support included at no extra charge, a one-year telephone-based technical support subscription is also available for purchase.
