The compact XPort® Direct+™ is an embedded device server module delivering high-performance Ethernet connectivity and web server capabilities. Manufacturers of high-volume, price-sensitive products can now rapidly and even more affordably web-enable virtually any device with a serial interface on its microcontroller. With its low cost and powerful functionality, XPort Direct+ is ideal for high-volume product deployments where low-cost, limited functionality host microcontrollers traditionally create a barrier to network-enablement.
XPort Direct+ acts as a dedicated co-processor module to optimize network activities, permitting the device’s host microcontroller to function at maximum efficiency. XPort Direct+ features a built-in web server for communications with a device via a standard Internet browser. Web capability can be used for remote configuration, real-time monitoring, upgrades and troubleshooting. XPort has 512 KB of on module Flash for web pages and firmware upgrades. This fully-integrated and ready-to-deploy module also includes a 10/100 MAC/PHY, 256 KB of SRAM and an RJ45 jack with magnetics.
