Artila: FreeRTOS programmable remote I/O module
Artila Electronics release RIO-2010PG, the new FreeRTOS programmable remote I/O module. RIO-2010PG is powered by a 32-bit NXP LPC1768 100MHz ARM Cortex M3 processor which is equipped with 64KB SRAM 512KB Flash and FreeRTOS operating system. The industrial I/O of RIO-2010PG features one 10/100 MHz Ethernet port, one full modem RS-232, one isolated RS-485, eight channels of relay, 16 photo-isolated digital inputs and one 1-wire interface for temperature or humidity sensors.
RIO-2010PG is shipped with a FreeRTOS+lwIP board support package, device manager utility and example programs. Users can choose the ToolChain either from Mentor’s Sourcery CodeBench Lite ARM EABI Release or Keil by ARM. A tiny web server is available in RIO-2010PG and it is ready for customer’s web-based application. Example programs which demonstrate serial and Ethernet data communication, Web configuration and EEPROM read and write are available in the RIO-2010PG application development kit. The device manager utility features device discovery, network configuration, user web page and firmware upload is also included.
Low power consumption of ARM cortex M3 plus high efficiency of FreeRTOS make RIO-2010PG an ideal light weight computing platform for device networking and remote monitoring.
